The Pope in America – Flashback

John Paul II at Quigley South - Chicago  1979Benedict XVI will soon be coming to the USA. I recently ran across a great photo from John Paul II’s trip to Chicago – back in 1979. There was a huge Mass at Grant Park in downtown Chicago. He also however made a stop at Quigley South High School. Quigley South (and North) were prep seminaries for the Chicago Archdiocese. The Quigley South facility is now St. Rita Catholic high school – and great things seem to be happening there.  The photo shows John Paul II standing on the roof of the Quigley South building – looking out over the crowd.
