Story, with photos, by David Briggs on the relationship between Pope John Paul II and the Jewish people includes quotes from Father Thomas Dailey, OSFS, professor of theology and director of the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture at DeSales. The exhibit, "A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II & the Jewish People" at Duquesne University, provides a look at the life of John Paul from his early years as a Catholic growing up in Poland during World War II, to the man who is referred to by some as the greatest pope the Jewish people have known. According to Father Dailey, the roles that Jewish leaders had at the funeral of John Paul signaled their appreciation of him and his work. It also indicated that the two religions have work to do in the world together.
