A Word about the Featured Image
As Father Kunst mentions in this interview he was fortunate to meet Pope St. John Paul II a total of seven times, including concelebrating Mass in his private chapel three times. This beautiful photo depicts one moment with him.
Information that was not part of the 2010 interview but is worth noting involve these other significant encounters with Pope St. John Paul II:
—Father Kunst concelebrated with the Pope at Mother Teresa’s beatification and the beatification of the Fatima children.
He concelebrated with him in St. Louis in 1999 & at the 2002 World Youth Day in Toronto.
Most significantly, Father Kunst concelebrated at the beatification and canonization of Pope St. John Paul II as well as he was a Eucharistic Minister at the canonization.
What incredible gifts to cherish.
