Monsignor Slawomir Oder, the postulator in the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of the Servant of God John Paul II, will speak to the public about the late pope’s efforts to bring differing religions into harmony. After he speaks, Oder will answer questions from the audience about the life of the former pope and the progress being made to declare John Paul II a saint. The presentation coincides with the opening of Holocaust Museum Houston’s newest exhibit, A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II and the Jewish People, an interactive experience that allows visitors to follow in John Paul II’s footsteps from his childhood to his role as head of the world’s largest church. It includes about 70 artifacts on loan from 10 museums and private collections that help illustrate the pope's association with the Jewish community from the time of his childhood and how these life-long associations shaped his papacy, the church and Jewish-Catholic relations.
