We don’t know why John Paul II wanted to hide this picture for years. The
Vatican published this picture recently, for first time. This picture was taken
by one of his security guards just when the Pope was attacked and was falling
down in his Papa mobil. You can see the pain in his face.

Joaquin Navarro Valls, who is the one spokesman from The Vatican, said that
they made a lot of studies for years of this incredible picture and of course
about the quality of the developing of the picture because when it was
developed nobody could see very well because the image was not clear.
Finally, and after so many controls and being looking and checking by all the
experts in photography (around the world), they decided that there were no
tricks in it and today they give us this beautiful gift from our Mother of God.
You can see the Mother of God holding John Paul II in her arms. Beautiful
right?
