Were The Soviets Behind 1981 Shooting Of Pope John Paul, II?

According to a Reuter’s report, that’s the word from an Italian parliamentary investigative commission. It’s no secret that the collapse of the Eastern European Communist control had a lot of encouragement from the saintly leader of the Roman Catholic Church. The new report makes sense since the motive behind the assassination attempt is abundantly clear.

Pope John Paul II was a very real threat to the lifestyles of many Communist leaders facing forced early retirement, exile or worse. Nowhere was this more evident than in the Pope’s home country, Poland. Poland became the epicenter for the destruction of the failed Communist system of government.

I’ve grown very fond of Pope John Paul, II over the years. I’ve had some really bizarre brushes with this Pope and I’ve met India’s, late Mother Theresa another saintly icon of the Catholic Church. Mother Theresa once placed a gift of a medal bearing her likeness into my hand. I will save these two stories for another day.

By another coincidence I’ve become close friends with two women who until recently never new each other. Both women sang for Pope John Paul, II on October 17, 1987 at the Dodger’s Stadium on Los Angeles. One is the gifted actress, singer and dancer, Ann Jillian, the wife of former Chicago police sergeant, Andy Murcia and the other is, Sue Ann Pinner an opera singer and college professor.

I will say that I’m involved in the background of an ongoing secret project that will honor Pope John Paul, II in the near future.
