Saint John Paul the Great
Share the truth and goodness of a modern-day saint with this bold statement piece. A great gift for him or her. One of best loved religious figures of the 20th century was Pope John Paul, II. A failed assassination attempt on the pontiff set a modern-day miracle–along with a decades-old prophecy–on the world stage. Only millimeters from a fatal shot, the bullet failed to end the life of the man who would eventually become a saint. Many faithful believe that this was in fulfillment of a prophecy at Fatima that predicted “a bishop in white” being attacked. Saint JP,II had a deep devotion to the Virgin Mary, and explained the miraculous survival by saying that that “one hand pulled the trigger, but another guided the bullet.” This miracle, and the international courage of one of the greatest religious heroes of our age is represented by this hand, as well as a scale replica of the 9mm bullet that was not enough to stop this amazing saint.
