MINI-SCRAPBOOK --- JP II Trading Cards

Last updated: May 7, 2005

About Art/Artist Trading Card (ATC):

The idea is based on sports trading cards (e.g. baseball and hockey). In 1996, a Swiss performing artist (M. Vanci Stirnemann) started "A Collaborative Cultural Performance" by creating 1000 artist trading cards and displaying them in his Zurich book store. On the last day of the event, he encouraged people who wanted a card to create their own to trade with his ATC. Thanks to the internet, ATC exchanges have become worldwide.

'Lolek, Lolek, Lolek' - shouted the crowd gathered at the 
1995 World Youth Day in Manila, Philippines.  Pope John 
Paul II said in reply, 'When I was a child, my mother called 
me that.  As the pope, call me, John Paul II.'  I think he did 
not want to be called Lolek anymore because it made him
sadly remember his mother who died before his 9th 
birthday.
Select "LOLEK, LOLEK, LOLEK"

PROUD PARENTS' PROPHECY.
Emilia told neighbors about her second baby boy,
'He will be a great man someday.'
Before Karol Sr. died, he had a dream that his junior
will become a pope.
Select "PROUD PARENTS' PROPHECY"

'BE NOT AFRAID.
One month before his 1st Holy Communion, Lolek was
called from class and was told he lost his mother.  At
age 8, he said, 'It was God's will.'
Who would have thought, the same strong-faithed boy
would become pope someday and declare, 'Be not
afraid to welcome Christ and accept His power...'
Select "BE NOT AFRAID"

TOTUS TUUS.
Six years before Karol was born, his baby sister died.
At age 8, one month before his 1st Holy Communion,
his mother died.
When he was 12, his brother, Edmund died.
At age 21, his father died.
All alone, he developed a special attachment to
Poland's Black Madonna in Czestochowa.
'Totally Yours'
Select "TOTUS TUUS"

HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU!
I don't know the story behind this comical Pope John
Paul II so I made one up:
This is really how he looked at each one of us ---
with keen observance and candid thoughts.
Just shows how much of a 'fungi' (fun guy)
and how young at heart he really was.
Select "HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU"

FEED MY SHEEP. (Universal Shepherd)
John 21:15-17
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to
Simon Peter, 'Simon, son of John, do you love
Me more than these?' He said to Him, 'Yes, Lord,
you know that I love You.'  Jesus said to him,
'Feed My lambs'...'Tend My sheep'...'Feed My
sheep'...
Select "FEED MY SHEEP"

WORD MADE FLESH.
Lolek, Karol Jozef Woytyla, Cardinal Woytyla,
Pope John Paul II --- practiced what he preached
--- he talked the talk, walked the walk, danced the
dance.
Just my kind of pope.
Select "WORD MADE FLESH"
