About John Paul II: Lessons For Living

Product Description Lessons from the most beloved spiritual leader of our time   Lessons for Living presents the essential pastoral wisdom of Pope John Paul II. These short, eloquent selections, culled from more than two decades of the pope’s writings and speeches, capture the clarity of John Paul’s insight and the fervor of his faith. Each page presents an inspirational lesson that encourages us to draw closer to God, helping us live as faithful Christians in a sometimes challenging world.   Become friends to those who have no friends. Become family to those who have no family. Become community to those who have no community. May we all share what we have with one another as children of the one God who loves everyone and who offers to everyone the gift of peace. —Pope John Paul   On October 16, 1978, Karol Wojtyla ascended to the papacy and adopted the name John Paul II. Since that time, he has greeted an estimated 16 million pilgrims at the Vatican’s General Audiences on Wednesdays and has touched millions of lives in his religious ceremonies, special audiences, and trips throughout the world. From Publishers Weekly Pope John Paul II may be a statesman, leader, philosopher and theologian. But according to Durepos, he has "the heart of a pastor," and his "supreme desire is that we come to embrace a faith that transforms the way we live, the way we relate to other people, and the way we work." This small, accessible gift book offers a hundred brief quotations from the pope on pastoral topics ranging from fasting and prayer to catechesis and the gift of peace. Along the way, the pope also shares tender thoughts on charity, stay-at-home motherhood, forgiveness, worldly goods, justice and the writing of history. This book can be used as a quiet daily devotional for Christians who want to savor each brief meditation, or read in one sitting by those interested in getting a feel for the spiritual musings of one of history’s most beloved popes.
