Blessed John Paul II, Be Not Afraid

$7.95


Author Susan Helen Wallace, FSP
Perhaps his greatest witness was the one he gave in the last years of his life, as his health declined due to the effects of Parkinson's disease. As he lay dying, the world kept vigil with him, until the Lord came for him on April 2, 2005, the vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday. Crowds of people came to Rome and waited for hours just to catch a glimpse of Pope John Paul II, the great Christian witness of our era.John Paul II, who served as Pope during the last 25 years of the 20th century and who led the Church with hope into the the third Christian millennium, was beatified six short years after his death on May 1, 2011. This book from the Encounter the Saints Series tells the story of this man whose message to the world throughout his pontificate was, "Do not be afraid!" John Paul II was born in 1920 to a devout Catholic family, and was named Karol Wojtyla. He lost his mother a month before he turned nine. As a young man he saw his world crumble when the Nazis swept into Poland and World War II broke out. Shortly thereafter, in 1941, his beloved father died.
