Nine Days That Changed the World
In preparation for Sunday's canonization of Pope John Paul II, you are invited to view the film, "Nine Days That Changed the World," exploring his pilgrimage to Poland in June 1979. During that visit, millions of Poles turned out to see the Pope in person. This film posits that this nine-day journey led to Solidarity becoming a recognized trade union 16 months later, to the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. Click here to view the film (which is about 90 minutes long).
