Armed with this information, I have obtained from L'Osservatore
Romano (the Vatican newspaper) a photograph of AIS and the Pope at
their meeting. It's in the photo section of the list home page,
accesible at http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/solzhenitsyn-l/lst
Since they are two of my spiritual and intellectual heroes, I'm
delighted to have this...and I'd dearly love to have it inscribed by
each of them...

> Dear Steve,
> I was October 16, 1993. I remember because that is the anniversary
> Pope's election, which occured in 1978. Thus, the Pope granted AIS
> two-hour audience (papal audiences usually last 20 minutes) on his
> anniversary as Supreme Pontiff. This is a measure of John Paul II's
> enormous affection for AIS, a feeling AIS fully reciprocates, as
> Natalia Dmitrievna, once told me.
> BBest regards,
