Pope John Paul II Quote
Right from the beginning of my ministry in St. Peter's See in Rome, I consider this message [of divine mercy] my special task. Providence has assigned it to me in the present situation of man, the Church and the world. It could be said that precisely this situation assigned that message to me as my task before God.
