Pope John Paul II was the most traveled Pope ever. Find out how many countries he visited (about 130). Make a time-line of the major countries he went to, including how many times he visited each country, which cities he went to and when he visited them. Keep studying the culture you selected on Week 3 Day 1. Today, why don’t you look up the types of food they eat.


In 1981, an attempt was made on the life of JPII. The almost-assassination occurred on May 13th, the anniversary of the first visit of Our Lady of Fatima. Did Pope JPII feel that Our Lady saved his life? How did the assassination attempt happen? Who tried to assassinate the Pope?
