"Habemus Papam", Karol Józef Wojtyła, Wojtyla..." Thus began the proclamation of a new pope, John Paul the Second, now Saint John Paul II,
We offer for your consideration a very special papal commemorative honoring the visit to the United States by a very special Pope - John Paul II, made by an exceptional English china company to mark John Paul's visit to America in 1987.
Royal Albert China Company only made 1000 of these special commemorative plates. The pope's visage is clearly shown in a moment of prayer early in in his pontificate.
Pope John Paul would go on to change the face of Eastern Europe, and become one of the greatest popes ever.
Upon his death, and during the funeral mass in his honor, the crowds shouted to the new Pope Benedict "Santo Subito!" "Santo Subito!" ("Make him a)Saint Immediately, or Sainthood Now!"
And, so it has come to pass.
Perhaps, you, or someone you know venerates Pope John Paul II, and would want to have his presence in the home. This plate will bring joy, warmth and peace throughout your household.
