Sunday, October 22, 1978. St.Peter’s Square.
During the Homily in the Mass for the beginning of the pontificate, Pope John Paul II said...
Do not be afraid! Open, in deed, open wide the doors to Christ! Open to his saving power the confines of states, and systems political and economic, as well as the vast fields of culture, civilization, and development. Do not be afraid! Christ knows ‘what is inside a person’. Only he knows!
