Religious freedom is the lifeblood of America.
In Poland, the Nazis and the Communists did everything they could to stamp out the Catholic Church and to destroy God in the eyes of the people.
Pope John Paul II arrived on June 2nd, 1979. He asked the million Poles gathered for Mass a simple question: what is a man without our Savior, Jesus Christ?
Simple question. The massed Poles erupted with a simple answer: “we want God.”
In other words, they acknowledged that we are nothing without God in our lives, that the state should not be an obstacle to publicly putting our faith into practice.
Watch the domino effect unleashed that moment today at the Fleur Cinema as we screen Newt Gingrich’s great documentary: “9 Days that Changed the World.”
Truth is stranger than fiction. This is riveting history. I encourage Quiner’s Diners readers in the greater Des Moines area to come on out to the Fleur Cinema at 4545 Fleur Drive at 11AM to catch this wonderful film.
There is one showing only. The price is $7 for adults and $6 for students.
See you there!
