This page brings together selections of some of EPPC's work related to the late Pope John Paul II, including obituaries and remembrances published this week.
At last! I've been waiting to hear what this great mind and great advocate and admirer of our Holy Father has to say!
"...the Pope offered me a way of thinking about being Catholic in the modern world that was both faithful to the great tradition and fully alert to the possibilities to be teased out of contemporary thought. Spiritually, the Pope was a shining example of a life lived according to the Gospel without compromise. Professionally, of course, the Pope changed my life by agreeing to cooperate with my rather brash proposal that I write his biography.
I’ll certainly be thinking about John Paul II for the rest of my life, and not only because I intend to finish Witness to Hope, bringing the story to a close. I’ll be thinking about John Paul because he has been one of the decisive influences in my life."
