The Wisdom of John Paul II is a powerful, illuminating distillation of the Pope's most moving, wise, and penetrating statements on a range of important issues. In this compilation by Nick Bakalar and Richard Balkin, the Pope addresses spirituality in modern life, human rights and religious freedom, marriage and family, morality, peace, prayer, women's roles, poverty, and many other concerns vital to Christian life and thought.
"Catholicism clarified for me"
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.
"What is a Bishop?"
With generous spirit and a profound sense of hope, Pope John Paul II always spoke to the people of the world in their own language and in a very personal way. In this special recording of his celebration of the Roman Catholic Holy Eucharist and various other liturgical selections, John Paul gives access to a spiritual and theological tradition that is centuries old.
