On 10 of November, John Paul II’s Family Home in Wadowice was visited by HE Card. Angelo Comastri – archpriest of St. Peter’s  Basilica, The Museum owes him and Stanisław Dziwisz – creation of replica of the Holy Door, presented in the section „Church built on the rock of love”.

During the tour, Cardinal Comastri shared his personal memories of John Paul II, saying that „the calmest eyes I have seen are the eyes of Mother Teresa and John Paul II. They were saints and were pleased to meet with God.” The visit in the Museum was a sentimental and emotional journey in time for the Cardinal. Memoirs of His Eminence were recorded, and will be available in the future to visitors of the  John Paul II Family Home in Wadowice.

Pastoral ministry of Cardinal Comastri is closely linked with the pontificate of John Paul II. It was the Pope who appointed him in 1990 as the Bishop of Massa Marittima-Piombino diocese, and four years later as the chairman of the National Center for Vocations and National Italian Committee for the Jubilee of the Year 2000. In 1996 he became Territorial Archbishop – Prelate of Loreto and a papal delegate to the Loretto Sanctuary. In the Great Lent 2003 he preached for the Roman Curia, and on 5 February 2005 John Paul II appointed him Vicar General for the Vatican City State and President of the Fabric of St. Peter.
