A Pope-Worthy Mural

Mural of Pope John Paul II, first Polish Pope, painted on the side of an apartment complex in Stalowa Wola

If you enter any Polish household at random, chances are you will find a picture of Pope John Paul II. He was an important symbol for the nation;  Jan Pawel II był symbolem nie tylko chrześcijaństwa, ale też dumą polski w czasach komunizmu.

16 października 1978 roku ówczesny kardynał Karol Wojtyła został wybrany Papieżem i obrał imię Jan Paweł II. To celebrate this year’s anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s papal inauguration, Lucjusz Nadbereżny (president of Stalowa Wola) gave permission for a mural to be painted in his honor. The painting was done overnight and overseen by artist Edward Horoszki.

With everything that’s happened this year, and no telling where things are going, it’s nice to see people honoring the icons they love.
