Number 1

His Holiness Pope John Paul II

Our beloved Pontiff who's kept the Church together and thriving in the throes of the dissident diatribe of modernists in the Church and a turbulent world that embraces the culture of death

    It's been a long journey since we began this series back on July 23rd, but finally we have arrived at the number one person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose, to no one's surprise Pope John Paul II, our great current Sovereign Pontiff and 264th in the succession of Peter whose pontificate has been one of the most remarkable in Church history and one of the tenth longest of the Popes. From the over 25,000 total votes received, we truly feel, as do the overwhelming number of voters who voted for him, that he will go down as John Paul the Great. To honor him we profide the conclusion of this special multi-part profile on the Holy Father and the conclusion of this series. For more on the number one selection, click on POPE JOHN PAUL II
