It was interesting to learn more about the assination attempt on the Pope and the third secret. At the end it helps put more perspective of Our Lady in our life. Anne - Sydney, NSW
I never knew the details of Pope John Paul's attempted assassination . Learning all of those details and the miracles that occurred was inspiring. What an amazing gift! Our Blessed Mother is so full of love for us! It's good to be reminded of how important she is in our lives. Aida - Woodbridge, VA
What a great story! Fr. Fisher holds your interest, and makes you want more. He made me want to know Mary much more! Mike - Crown Point, IN
It put all these events in chronological order for me and made me want to model Blessed John Paul II's love of Mary. Ann - overland Park, KS
I loved learning more about the history in our Church, & about Pope John Paul, & it was very moving to hear the prayer to Our Blessed Mother at the end Lisa - New Castle, PA
I hope this talk will lead me to a greater devotion to Jesus, Mary, and the rosary. Tim - Fort Wayne , IN
I loved the talk about our Blessed Mother. Ricardo - El Mirage, AZ
As a convert who never really paid much attention to the Blessed Mother, I appreciate hearing about the devotion other people have to her and how it affects their lives and can affect my own life. Betsy - Deckerville, MI
WOW!! What a powerful talk! This kept me on the edge of my seat like nothing else ever has! The dramatic recounting of the behind-the-scenes miracles that took place to save Pope John Paul II's life after the assassination attempt in St. Peter's Square was AMAZING!! I had goosebumps the whole time! Thank you so much for offering this talk...what a blessing!! Dana - Bettendorf, IA
Father's sports analogy was interesting and engaging, a perfect lead in to this event in Pope John Paul's life. Even though I had heard the story of Pope John Paul's attempted assassination before, Father added additional information that I had never heard. I especially liked the explanation of his favorite line from the Memorare, which gave me a new insight to meditate on when praying, even though I have been saying this prayer for years. margaret - BRISTOL, PA
The opening comments highlighting a sports related situation would appeal to men of all ages - that was very important. The entire talk was not only spirit filled but also provided the historical background on Fatima and John Paul II devotion to Mary. The Overall message was a beautiful proclamation of Mary's role not only in "bringing John Paul II back to life" but how she can do the same for all. Ending with the Memorare was perfect. Nancy - Cincinnati, OH
It was short enough to listen to in one setting and still was very informative. I had heard some of the event but learned even more details that gave me more to meditate on. Martha - Topeka, KS
It was very timely w/ the coming cannonization. Lighthouse's military CD samples that are provided to the Military are one of the driving forces that helped to bring me back to the Church after nearly 20 years and were a ready resource in my wife's conversion to the Church. Please keep up the good work. God Bless. Michael - Bloomington, IN
The narrative was outstanding and the content was impecable Elias - houston, TX

Fr. Andrew Fisher is very direct and clear; I like that. Eric - Ivanhoe (Melbourne), VIC
I enjoyed how Father Andrew Fisher talked about how Pope JPII introduced the rosary to him and how praying the rosary you also pray with Mary. Michelle - carson, CA
Many of the facts I was not aware over. I carry the Rosary at all times and at one time prayed it often but have strayed from praying it. I pray this talk will bring me back. Lemoine - Paden City, WV
Amazing testimony! A must listen talk about a great pope! Mickey - Philadelphia, PA
I loved listening to Fr. Andrew Fisher passion and explanation of St. Pope John Paul II relationship to the Blessed Mother and how we to can have such a relationship with three blessings he shares with the listeners of this CD. Idell - Grand Rapids, MI
An enlightening talk to help you believe in miracles...especially those that come through the personal intervention of Mother Mary! Dedicate yourself to her and she will listen when you ask for assistance. She hears and responds, and you don't even have to be St. John Paul II to receive her help! Julie- Sterling, VA
Excellent composition of a miracle for our times. A perfect story of the love between our Mother Mary and John Paul II. Norm - Biloxi, MS
This talk gives great insight into the life and faith of Saint John Paul II, a modern Saint we all loved. Everyone should listen! Cheryl - Vernon, NJ
I am always interested in learning about our Pope John Paul II. I wasn't a very good Catholic during his papacy, I am ashamed to say, but now I can't learn enough or fast enough about being a Catholic Christian. Thank you for all the CD's and emails. Yours in Christ, Angie Jaramillo angie - santa clarita, CA
I enjoyed everything about it. The reports of what happened, the wonderful relationship between Our Blessed Mother and Pope John Paul II, the forgiveness of the sinner and especially the love that Mary has for all of us and how she leads us to her Son and onto the path of holiness. Since I have been saying the Rosary daily, sometimes twice a day, my whole life has dramatically changed for the better. I consecrate myself daily to Mary and Jesus to help me on my journey to holiness and to the highest Heaven in the next life. I love these CD's. I have The Divine Mercy and Trust in God cd's. I am looking forward to hearing more from lighthouse media. Claudia - North Attleboro, MA
About how the Blessed Virgin Mary interceded and saved for the Pope when he was shot by the assasin Maria - Surrey, BC
The correlation between sport and spirituality. The example of faith shown by St JPII The Great. Talk made me realized how Luke warm my own faith and devotion is. Peter - Gosford, NSW
The fact that Pope John Paul 2 left the bullet that nearly killed him at the Marian shrine in Fatima. Joe - Eden, NY
I got goosebumps listening to the numerous miracles involved in the shooting of Pope John Paul 2. I am preparing myself to make my act of consecration in August and this talk helped me to fall deeper in love with our Blessed Mother Durban
I couldn't tell whether the Giant's or the Dodgers won, but it was a very interesting story. Of course the other shot heard--that of St. John Paul 2 was very interesting! I was amazed at his would-be-killer's wonder at his being alive--praise God and our Blessed Mother!!! Victyoria S. - Doylestown, PA
Just about everything! From the start you want to keep listening. I learn many things about the day Pope John Paul II was shot. I have always believed strongly that the Blessed Mother has been here to protect us but if you have any doubts you need this CD. Father Anddrew Fisher is so passionate about our Blessed Mother and has made me feel that way too. I have a routine of praying in the morning now I have added more prayers to our Blessed Mother. This CD was the best one I have every purchased. Thank you so much for showing new light into my prayers. Laurie - Johnsburg, IL
I thought it was very interesting on how the assassination attempt on JPII had so many unique things about it- it fulfilled a prophecy from Our Lady of Fatima and there were many unlikely events that happened that allowed JPII to live afterwards. Jessica - Cedar Rapids, IA
