Publisher's Summary

Drawing on the period when, as Karol Wojtyla, he became a bishop in 1958 through his appointment as the first Polish Pope in 1978, Pope John Paul II fills Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way with both recollections of his own life and his thoughts on issues facing the world now. Pope John Paul II reminisces about everything from being called to Warsaw during a canoeing trip to be told he was being named a bishop of Krakow to his clashes with authorities to protect the church in Poland and the clandestine meetings he organized to find help. He also discusses topics like his passion for theatre and the controversy of celibacy amongst priests.

More than just a collection of memories, however, Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way is also a call to action. In discussing issues like the strength of mercy, the importance of harmony between faith, reason, and the heart, and the necessity of encouraging children to pray, Pope John Paul II shows us that with little steps, we can change the world.

    "What is a Bishop?"

    Well read and even better written, The Holy Father takes the reader (listener) through a tour of his own life as a Bishop. In doing this John Paul II offers us a reflection on what he believes today's Bishops are called to be. An interesting read filled with the Holy Father's own humanness, I would recommend this to anyone who would like to see the human side of the Holy Father and develop a new view of the hierarchy of the Church.

    "I Simply Can't Put It Into Words"

    I really can't. The one thing that struck me about this book was the theology behind the calling to a vocation that God has for us. We don't choose God for our vocations, God chooses us for them. It is up to us to find that vocation through the discernment of our life's past and events. An excellent read, and a must for anyone in discernment or thinking about a religious vocation.
