JPII and Dostoevsky

http://www.ewtn.com/library/PAPALDOC/JP960901.HTM

Someday I’m going to be reading Dostoevksy, and someone will ask “Dostoevsky? Why waste your time on such long Russian novels, and ones written by a non-Catholic?” To which I will reply: “HOW CAN WE FORGET FYODOR MIKHAYLOVICH DOSTOEVSKY, ONE OF THE GREATEST WRITERS OF ALL TIME?”  They will be thoroughly confused, and will ask me what that has to do with anything, and I will ask them what Blessed John Paul the Great has to do with anything.
