This biography presents the life story of Pope John Paul II, who surmounted great odds to become the leader of the faith practiced by millions of people around the world. Pope John Paul II came to Rome from his native Poland, and became the first non-native Italian in five centuries to hold that position. The documentary traces his early life in Poland, and the hardships he endured under the communist regime. The program then turns to the travels and accomplishments of this pope, who has reached out to many lands and faiths on his mission of peace. Archival film clips, photographs, and interviews with friends, colleagues, and historians tell the story of the beloved pontiff. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
