John Paul II and a cardinal strew flower petals on Gandhi's tomb

A shoeless JPII strews petals on Gandhi's tomb

On his visit to India November 6, 1999, John Paul II removed his shoes before approaching the tomb of Gandhi. There he prayed, strewed petals over it, above, and laid a wreath of flowers on it, below.

In his message, JPII stated that followers of other religions can be "saved by Christ" without being converted.

With these words, he certainly applied the suspect theory of "anonymous Christianism" by Jesuit Karl Rahner. According to it, every men who practices any religion or just acts according to Natural Law is already an anonymous Christian without knowing it, or even if he denies it.
