Reminding us of "the unparalleled effect of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth on the history of mankind", Pope John Paul II sees the two thousandth anniversary of Christ's birth as an extraordinary moment "for the whole of humanity". Ever since he became Pope in 1978, John Paul II has looked toward this special time with great anticipation, explaining that the Jubilee is "an occasion of special grace, a year of the Lord's favor".
Featuring the Pope's specific reflections and prayers for the Great Jubilee, this exquisite, keepsake calendar includes masterpiece paintings, which serve as fitting accompaniment to the timely and inspiring message of the Holy Father. The calendar also includes feast days of the liturgical year for 2000, as well as U.S. and Canadian saints and holidays, and special Jubilee days and events.
Pope John Paul II envisions "a new springtime of Christian life which will be revealed by the Great Jubilee if Christians are docile to the action of the Holy Spirit". We hope this calendar serves as an instrument toward that end -- as we celebrate the Great Jubilee 2000!
