Pope John Paul II

Week of Sept. 21, 1987
Calling himself "a pilgrim in the cause of justice and peace," Pope John Paul II arrives in the U.S. for his first visit in eight years. Despite spirited dissent among U.S. Catholics over issues of married priests and the ordination of women, the Pope voices his conviction that the American church is "a good church, a very good church."
