Put Out Into the Deep! DUC IN ALTUM! "58. Let us go forward in hope! A new millennium is opening before the Church like a vast ocean upon which we shall venture, relying on the help of Christ. The Son of God, who became incarnate two thousand years ago out of love for humanity, is at work even today: we need discerning eyes to see this and, above all, a generous heart to become the instruments of his work." Pope John Paul II, ( Novo Millennio Ineunte)
On October 22, 1978, Pope John Paul II stepped out on to the balcony in St. Peters Square and signaled his mission:
"Be Not Afraid! Open up, no; swing wide the gates to Christ. Open up to his saving power the confines of the State, open up economic and political systems, the vast empires of culture, civilization and development . Be not afraid!" he proclaimed to cheering throngs of the faithful gathered in St. Peter's square.
One of the chief architects of the Second Vatican Council and it's extraordinary document on the Church in the Modern World, "Joy and Hope", now occupied the chair of Peter.
In his invitation to build what he would later call a new "Culture of Life" and "Civilization of Love", this giant of a man stepped not only onto the balcony of St. Peter's, but also onto the world's stage.
History would never be the same.
