John Paul was the first modern pope to grow up in a secular culture: He attended public schools, danced with girls - indeed, as a teenager he had a crush on a beautiful Jewish girl who fled his hometown just ahead of the arrival of the Germans.
As for antichrist occupying the papal chair, it is evident that a pope living contrary to Christ, like any other perverted person, is called, by common consent, antichrist.
I have very good relations with Pope Francis. I read constantly what he says and follow his speeches. Pope Francis has come to renew the Catholic Church, and he has new air to renew the spiritual world. Now, Venezuela does not need mediation.
My duties are wider than those of the Pope. The Pope is only concerned with the spiritual welfare of his flock.
Aga Khan IV
The new pope knows that his task is to make the light of Christ shine before men and women of world - not his own light, but that of Christ.
Pope Benedict XVI
What a terrible thing it would be to be the Pope! What unthinkable responsibilities to fall on your shoulders at an advanced age! No privacy. No seclusion. No sin.
If I could do shoes for anyone, it would be a special project for the Queen of England. She and the Pope are the ultimate clients.
I am an atheist, and if an atheist and a pope think the same things, there must be something true. It's that simple!
Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly - young and old, faithful and cynical - as has Pope Francis.

The ultimate binding element in the medieval order was subordination to the divine will and its earthly representatives, notably the pope.

Tweeting is a very personal form of expression. Who else could talk about my son refusing to wear a suit to meet the Pope, my husband flying a helicopter, or take a twitpic from our home?
Queen Rania of Jordan
I think it is quite remarkable actually that Pope Benedict has a sense of the variety of ways in which it is possible to be a Catholic. I think he is more comfortable with a plurality of expressions of Catholicism in different rites, traditions than many of us are.
Pope John Paul II was a great presence on the stage. Pope Benedict is a much more gentle and refined person, and I think he benefits greatly from the television close-ups because he wants to engage in a dialogue, in conversation. He wants to put forward his views in a measured, eloquent, rational way.
In the annals of history, few men have left a more positive imprint on the world than Pope John Paul II.

To go back and read Swift and Defoe and Samuel Johnson and Smollett and Pope - all those people we had to read in college English courses - to read them now is to have one of the infinite pleasures in life.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
