The author: sunday the 22 of october 1978, solemn liturgy.
First greetings to the Cardinal.
Among them the ancient Primate [a kind of Cardinal] of Poland, a wild oak, kneels down himself in front of the Pope, proud and moved.
And then the Pope's close friend and very appreciate theologian: Cardinal Ratzinger.
Karol introduce himself to the world. JP2 " Do not be afraid! Open, open wide the doors to Christ, to his saviour power.
Open the Countries' borders! Open the economical and political systems! Open the cultural, civil and development boundaries! Do not be afraid!" [in 1978 we are in the middle of the cold war].
The Pope will later remember: "When I had mentioned the words "Do not be afraid" I didn't know how far they would have brought me and the Church". JP2, on the same morning: "Christ knows what is inside the man. He is the only one who knows it. So often today the man doesn't know what he has inside, he doesn't know his soul and his heart. The man is often doubtful about the sense of his life on Earth. And the doubt becomes desperation.
Please, I pray you with humility and trust, allow Christ to speak to the man!" TThe author: "and those words look like the exit from the old Roman Catholic Church, the exit from an old, afraid and lost Catholicism".
JP2: "Only Christ has words of life,yes, of a never-ending life!"
The author: This is the announce of a faith which is alive.
Not a faith based upon sociology and theology.
But a strong and merciful God based upon the Gospels. A God of the certainty, of the consolation, of the abandonment to Him that gives brave.
The God of Abraham, the God of the evidences, the testimonies until the martyrdom.And the new shepherd [The Pope] is young and strong. He communicates trust, self confidence, audacity.
This is very far from the shy, thin and fragile body of his two predecessors.One morning in october, in Rome, Karol exceeds, again.
He breaks the protocol, and suddenly goes down St Peter's stairs.
He goes "ab gentem" (towards people in latin).
Then, instinctively, he raises up the Pastoral Cross, as a redeemed standard, as a forgotten flag.
It's the signal to call back the people [population] of God, pack the tends, and begin the path again!!!
