Local priest gave homily in private papal chapel

Preaching at Mass with Pope John Paul II was 'one of the greatest experiences' of monsignor's life

Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo kneels to kiss the ring of Pope John Paul II. The monsignor was speechless after the Pope asked him to give the homily in the papal chapel. Photo submitted.
When the Vicar of Christ is present, he is usually the one doing the preaching, so when Msgr. Pedro Lopez-Gallo was asked to give the homily in Pope John Paul II's private chapel in 1990, he was speechless. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
