Christina: The Jewess and the Pope
Believe, Portrait of Pope John Paul II by Igor Babailov


Fourteen year old Jewish Girl

can walk no more

Priest came along

brought her a glass of tea
and two slices of bread

she hadn't held a glass
in over 3 years
and was overcome with tears.

Where do you want to go,
he asked?

Krakow, she said.

I, also.
So, get up, and let us go.

She was too weak
so he carried her.

He became the Pope.
He had been her savior and
her friend.

She was there today
to be with him at his journey's end.
