CHICAGO, IL, JULY 24, 2007 - A Blessing to One Another illustrates the Life of Pope John Paul II and his boyhood friendship with Jerzy Kluger, a young Jewish man, who was later instrumental in organizing the Pope’s historic visit to Israel in 2000. The exhibition leads visitors through a wandering street in Poland to the Western Wall in Israel. Text panels, electronic video panels, artifacts and photographs tell the story of shared hardships during World War II, the Holocaust, Karol Wojtyla’s rise to the Papacy, a renewed friendship and the groundbreaking reconciliation between Catholic and Jews.
The Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union Catholic-Jewish Studies Program is co-sponsoring this highly acclaimed exhibit on the life and work of Pope John Paul II, focusing in a special way on his work in fostering constructive relations between Catholics and Jews. The exhibit is organized by Xavier University in Cincinnati and has been shown in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Washington and New York. It is now in Chicago at the new Loyola University Museum of Art located in the Lewis Towers Building on Loyola's Water Tower campus. The Museum's address is 820 N. Michigan Ave., directly across from the famed Water Tower. The exhibit will be on display at the Museum through mid-August. Visiting times are 10AM-5 PM Wednesdays through Sundays; 10:00 am-8:00 pm on Tuesdays.
