Big old statue of JP2 in…India

Hussaini said the statue’s dimensions make it “one of the largest statues dedicated to the Pontiff in the world.”  He explained that statue rests on “three great steps that represent the three phases of the life of the Pope: the first when he was Karol Wojtyla, the second when he was John Paul II, and third represents the path towards sainthood. 

In addition, there are another 26 smaller steps, one for each year of his pontificate,” he said.
