When Pope John Paul II entered the papacy in 1978, he was the youngest pope in 154 years, the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, and the first pope ever from a Communist country. His number one claim to fame was that he had presided over the Polish church for 30 years under Communism, and the church had not only survived, but thrived.

John Paul II spoke before the UN the first time in 1979, one year after beginning his papacy. In that speech he called for significant wealth redistribution.

When he again addressed the UN on October 5, 1995, he once again trumpeted the socialistic call for wealth redistribution. Pope John Paul II stressed the need to strengthen the UN and urged the abolishment of all nuclear weapons from the earth

Pope favors a United Europe

Pope John Paul II has envisioned a United Europe from the Atlantic Ocean to the Ural Mountains throughout his papacy. As the European Union continues to expand, it appears the Pope’s vision will soon become reality. In a Common Declaration recently signed by Pope John Paul II and Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, John Paul said,

"We pray for the full realization of the European Union, without delay, and we hope that its borders will be extended to the East"

(The Pope Speaks, Nov/Dec 1995, p. 401).

John Paul II -- Gorbachev connection

When Mikhail Gorbachev was in power, he and the Pope were working together to realize a united Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals. U.S. News and World Report, May 18, 1992, stated that Pope John Paul II desired a united Europe, and that he thought Mikhail Gorbachev would be the ideal presiding officer. On March 9, 1992, the New York Times published an article by Gorbachev titled "My Partner, the Pope."

This special relationship becomes especially interesting at this time when global government and religious unity seem to be within the world’s grasp.

Since Pope Pius XII, all the popes have favored world government in some form or another. The contention has been that there must be some form of supranational government to preside over an ever increasingly interdependent world. The papacy has been one of the strongest supporters of the UN since its formation in 1945
