1995 Youth Defence Leaflet -“John Paul II speaks…to Youth Defence” December 12, 2012


A Youth Defence Leaflet about two of their senior members Niamh Nic Mhathúna (now Niamh Uí Bhriain) and John Heaney meeting the Pope.

On Friday, 4th August 1995 Niamh Nic Mhathuna (Chairwoman) and John Heaney (Campaign Co-ordinator) of Youth Defence received an invitation to attend the Private Mass of His Holiness Pope John Paul II and afterwards to meet with the Holy Father at Castelgandolfo.

After Mass the Holy Father spoke to Niamh and John and gave them his undivided attention, stressing the importance of Youth Defence’s pro-life work. As the audience ended the Holy Father himself summoned the Vatican Photographers to record the event.
