In thisÂ interview, Fr. Peter Mitchell talks about his new book, John Paul II – We Love You.Â He shares about his experience of being in Rome during the death of Pope John Paul II, and how his chronicles of the events of those days (originally in email) were transformed into a large portion of this book.Â He talks vividly about the day before JPII died, the emotions at the prayer vigel, and the general feelings of those in Rome during those historical days.Â He recounts his part in the funeral procession, and the stories of the 2 million pilgrims who decended on Rome.Â He also tells about the absolute joy in Rome at the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI.Â Finally, he share stories from many of the youth in the JPII generation who grew up in their faith as a result of World Youth Days and other influences of JPII.
