A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "How do you think the world will best remember Pope John Paul II?"
"I think that he tried to be a people's Pope to relate to the everyday person and help them experience their faith in everyday life."
Lori MacIsaac, Evergreen Circle
"He will be remembered as the most important person from eastern Europe in the 20th century."
Bill Green, Lake Drive
"Although I found he was too conservative to my liking, he was revered and well respected and that's how I hope he will be remembered."
Gloria Tener, Governors Lane
"I'm not sure about the world but I will remember that he did make efforts towards peace by extending himself towards other world leaders and also making statements about that. I don't like the fact that he didn't do anything for women. He had a very conservative attitude about women's place in the world and in the Church."
Julia Poulos, Witherspoon Street
"I think he faithfully upheld the doctrines of the Catholic Church and he reached out to the world's Christians in a way that previous Popes hadn't done before."
Rebecca Jordan, Student, Princeton Theological Seminary
