The thirteenth of anniversaries is dedicated to the thirtieth anniversary of the birth of San Giovanni Palo II.
The anniversary coincides with the partial reopening of the Museum after the quarantine due to the covid 19 pandemic.
At 7 am, in full compliance with the security measures, some faithful and visitors followed the Holy Mass celebrated in high definition on the big screens by Pope Francis from the altar placed on the tomb of St. Giovanni Palo II.
In the homily, the Pope recalled three of the qualities of Giovanni Palo II: prayer, closeness and justice-mercy.
Many students connected on the museum's multimedia portal where - in the section "The great protagonists of history" - videos, images and documents on St. Giovanni Palo II are available.
The chapel dedicated to him in the museum collects finds, testimonies, interviews and curiosities.
On this occasion, the interviews and all the video material on the much loved Pope are repeated.
President Michele Capasso recalled the friendship between President Pertini and Pope Giovanni Palo II as well as the meetings he had at the beginning of the Foundation's activity.
There are also some letters sent to the Pope by members of the Foundation and, in particular, by the late president of the international committee Predrag
Matvejevic’.
