How many divisions did the Pope have? More than you can imagine.

By Aussiegirl

Don't miss reading Charles Krauthammer on Pope John Paul II:

"WASHINGTON -- It was Stalin who gave us the most famous formulation of that cynical (and today quite fashionable) philosophy known as ``realism'' -- the idea that all that ultimately matters in the relations among nations is power: ``The pope? How many divisions does he have?''

Stalin could only have said that because he never met John Paul II. We have just lost the man whose life was the ultimate refutation of ``realism.'' Within 10 years of his elevation to the papacy, John Paul II had given his answer to Stalin and to the ages: More than you have. More than you can imagine."

Yep-Stalin`s godchildren did not set themselves against flesh and blood but against the armies of God, and the wrath of the Lord. Stalin had men and guns-John Paul II had the true power on his side.

Yep we saw what did the armies of GOD against nazis overrunning Europe. Ultimately, it was the red army, led by Joseph Staline who broke the evil nazis!
