On May 13, 1981 an assassination attempt was made on Pope John Paul II. Mehmet Ali Agca, a Turkish gunman, shot Pope John Paul II in St. Peter's Square.. He was then rushed into the Vatican complex, then to the hospital. It was at this time en route to the hospital that he lost consciousness. Ağca was caught and sentenced to life. In December 1983, Pope John Paul II visited the prison where Agca was being held. The two spoke privately for 20 minutes. John Paul II said, "What we talked about will have to remain a secret between him and me. I spoke to him as a brother whom I have pardoned and who has my complete trust." The pope also states that the Our Lady of Fatima, whose feast is May 13th,  helped keep him alive.
