A Pilgrim Pope: Messages for the World

Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, Dec 18, 2012 - Religion - 352 pages
Pope John Paul II redefined the role of the papacy as an active, living presence in the lives of the diverse faithful worldwide. He accomplished this in part through the remarkable breadth of his travels, visiting every continent around the globe. In the course of an unprecedented 85 trips—with stops to lands rich and poor, at peace and strife-torn—he shared his universal message of joy, hope, and comfort. This powerful collection of over 175 of his most compelling messages is presented in chronological order around the three themes that mark the progression of his papacy: "Evangelization and Global Politics," "Solidarity and Unity," and "New Evangelization: Toward the Millennium and Beyond." Introductory notes clarifying the time and context for each selection further enhance this inspiring volume.
