Story & Symbolism:
Pope John Paul II was Head of the Catholic Church and Sovereign of the State of Vatican City from 1978 to 2005. He was elected Pope by the Second Papal Conclave of 1978, which was called after the death of Pope John Paul I, who had been elected to replace Pope Paul VI in August, 33 days later. Cardinal Wojtyła was elected on the third day of the conclave and in tribute to him took the name of his predecessor. John Paul II is remembered as helping to bring an end to Communist rule in his native Poland and, finally, in Europe as a whole.
