Pope John Paul II, statue, Seattle

On April 2, 2005 at 9:37 p.m. Pope John Paul II died. In April of 2009 his beloved successor, Pope Benedict XVI, told Pilgrims gathered in Rome “With you, I pray for the gift of beatification”.  That prayer has been answered.  Friday, January 14, 2011 the Holy See released the “Decree for the Beatification of the Servant of God John Paul II.”

This new (May 2011) statue at St, Margaret’s in Seattle was built from stainless steel, welded and hammered by Polish artist Wiktor Szostalo. It was photographed here after dark with about 45 exposures of painted light from hand held spot lights.
