Pope John Paul II and James Simon Mishibinijima

 I made a comment about spiritual religion over the internet a week ago, This person who had seen the Portrait of Pope John Paul II by MISHIBINIJIMA said, how can a native American paint a catholic concept. I relied by saying, Spiritual religion and faith is the most powerful enitity a person can have, through believing, inner strength begins and thats we all want. Someone to stand and clear the way in our human journey because there’s allot of negative lights along they way to get us astray and to fail. To my surprise in this public comment, Pope John Paul II prints are being shipped all over America. I’m glad the Pope print helps the people in some way and only trying to help but of course, only you can do that if you want to change and clear your path. James Simon Mishibinijima
