Pope Tales, Part I Pope John Paul II lives on in the hearts of many... and on the leg of Susan Kilchewski- Gregoire. The Connecticut woman has had a portrait of the pontiff tattooed over much of her right calf. She already has more than two-dozen other tattoos, including angels, but she told the Meriden Record-Journal the pope is her pride and joy. Her own priest said it was unique -- but why not, since lots of people have tattoos of Jesus and Mary.
