Saint Jean Paul II
His papacy spanned more than 26 years, making him the second-longer reigning pope in history after St. Peter. He travelled on hundreds of pastoral journeys to 129 countries and was seen by more people than anyone else in human history. He wrote more than 1,000 pages of magisterial documents and promulgated the first new catechism of the Catholic Church in four centuries. He beatified 1,338 people and canonized 482 saints - more that the combined total since the canonization process was formalized in the 16th century.
