Lubbock first city in U.S. to host exhibit for Pope John Paul II

From Lubbock Economic Development Alliance & Visit Lubbock:

Lubbock is the first city in the U.S. that has been chosen by the Vatican to host an exhibit honoring one of the world's most influential leaders, Pope John Paul II.

Representatives with the City of Lubbock and the National Exhibits Association announced Thursday morning Lubbock will kick off the U.S. tour of "I Have Come to You Again" – a public exhibit of the personal artifacts of His Holiness, Blessed Pope John Paul II. The exhibit will be in Lubbock Friday, March 15, 2013 through Friday, May 31, 2013 at The Catholic Renewal Center of the Diocese of Lubbock, located at 4620 4th Street.

The exhibit will feature more than 130 of Pope John Paul II's personal artifacts and memorabilia. The exhibit was designed to highlight four different phases of Pope John Paul II's life: his childhood and adolescence (1920-1938), his years as a laborer, priest, bishop, archbishop and cardinal in his native Poland (1939-1978), his years as the first Polish pope of the Roman Catholic Church (1978-2005) and finally, a reflection of the time from death through his beatification (2005-Present).

Items on display will come from the Vatican Collections, located in Rome, as well as from the Pope John Paul II Center in Krakow, Poland. These artifacts will include personal belongings Blessed Pope John Paul II collected during his lifetime as well as gifts, pictures and documents he received while he served as a world leader.

"To be selected by the Vatican City State and entrusted with the personal belongings of a world leader and to be able to share these artifacts with this nation is a very humbling opportunity," Rev. Malcolm Neyland, M.C.L., J.C.L., Executive Director of the National Exhibits Association and a priest through the Diocese of Lubbock, said.
