"Fearless in Unshakeable Hope"

Tributes To Pope John Paul II by Mother Teresa, President Mikhail Gorbachev, President Nelson Mandela And United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan

Mother Teresa

When Time Magazine was about to reveal that Pope John Paul II had been chosen as “Man of the Year” for 1994, its editors asked Mother Teresa to assess the Pope’s contribution to the betterment of our world. They knew that Mother Teresa was extremely close to the Holy Father. By way of reply, Mother Teresa sent them the following unforgettable tribute:

“Pope John Paul II”

Ever sustained by a profound Faith,
Nourished by unceasing prayer,
Fearless in unshakeable Hope,
Deeply in Love with God.”
