Friendship between Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan

Friendship between Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan

WASHINGTON – Gtpministries.org – Ronald Reagan was born to a father who was an Irish Catholic who diligently attended church. His mother was a Protestant who also attended church diligently. However, when Ron’s older brother, Neil, attended Mass with their father at the Catholic Church, Ron chose to attend services at the Protestant Church with his mother. However, he admitted that his father’s beliefs remained part of Ronald’s life, at least in his political life. The President of the United States is close to many Catholic religious leaders.

After recovering from the shooting in 1981, he began a remarkable spiritual friendship with the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Terence Cooke. He admitted to Cardinal Cooke that his recovery (from a gunshot wound) required him to live for others. At that time, Cardinal Cooke intelligently answered that while he was hospitalized, “God sat by his (Ronald’s) side.”

All these stories about Reagan and Catholicism pale in comparison to his relationship with Pope John Paul II. Between the two, there is mutual admiration and respect. Reagan was eager to meet Pope John Paul II after watching footage of his first visit to Poland in 1979.

Reagan and Pope John Paul II had the same goal. Both wanted to end the rule of communism. At that time, the Soviet Union, which was the largest communist power, was still in power in Eastern Europe. It feels like this desire is the same as the desire of a United States president.

Shortly after Reagan became president in 1981, he asked national security adviser William Clark and CIA Director William Casey, both Catholics, to arrange meetings with the Pope. In the book The Age of Reagan by Stephen Hayward, it is told that once Reagan asked Pope John Paul II how long it would take for communism to be defeated, and the Pope answered the question.

β€œIn our lifetime,” the Pope answered quickly.

Pope John Paul II’s role in the fall of communism in Europe is still being discussed today. It is interesting that, as Pope John Paul II said, communism finally fell while he was still alive, including communism in Poland, the country of his birth.

The 1989 revolution occurred when Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan were still alive in 1989. This revolution is called the Fall of Communism or the Eastern European Revolution. This revolution broke out in communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe, which eventually turned these countries into democracies. The revolution began in Poland in 1988, then continued in Hungary, East Germany, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia and Romania.

One of the important things in the development of this revolution was the use of non-violent demonstrations against the single-party government and demands for change. This appeal was effective. Only one country, Romania, overthrew its communist regime through violence.

The most famous anti-communist revolution was the fall of the Berlin Wall, which ultimately became the gateway to German reunification in 1990. The Soviet Union was dissolved at the end of 1991, resulting in 14 new countries.
