Overview

During his lifetime of service, Pope John Paul II traversed the globe to expose injustice and spread the influence of the Catholic faith to all who would listen.

Now viewers can join CBS News as they look back at the first Polish-born pope's life from early childhood to his later role as a worldly renowned spiritual leader whose devotion to the church was so powerful that it reached beyond Catholicism to inspire even those who stood outside of his particular belief system.
