Spiritual father of millions, globally influential leader, Pope John Paul II's words have brought inspiration, solace, and courage to those who have listened.
The quotes and prayers collected here are both for the faithful and for those who have been touched by and want to know more about this remarkable man. Pope John Paul II: In His Own Words contains quotes and prayers from his pastoral letters, homilies, daily audiences, books, encyclicals, and speeches. His words on love, family, truth, freedom, human relationships, the power of God, and the importance of hope and prayer explore what it means to be alive and what we are doing here on Earth, and offer answers to some of life's hardest questions.
Known as "The Pilgrim Pope" for his extensive travels, Pope John Paul II has spoken to millions of people from all backgrounds and economic circumstances around the world: from those living under Communist regime in Cuba to those suffering dislocation in war-torn countries of Africa; from materially wealthy yet spiritually hungry people in well-developed Western countries to materially impoverished seekers in Asia. His words are for all: world leaders, youth, the sick and suffering, students, seminarians, workers, parentseveryone who desires peace and feels concern for their fellow human beings.
Whether speaking at the United Nations Assembly or at a sports stadium, in person or in these pages, Pope John Paul II's words convey the wisdom of his experience, the convictions of his faith, and the authority of a God who offers hope to a world that yearns for it.
