About-

This work gives readers a glimpse into the mind, heart, and vision of Pope John Paul II regarding the present and future life and role of laity in the Church, and his thoughts and reflections inspire us all in our daily living of the Lord's call. This is a collection of insightful teachings from over 300 of the Pope's sermons and speeches. Every word in the book, including titles and sub-headings, is directly from the Pope's sermons. John Paul II stands out as a religious leader who has himself been immersed in the daily grind and joys of lay life. He knew the hardships of the factory, the exhilaration of sport, the intellectual challenge of university life, and the daily pressures of unjust government. In his many journeys we saw him at home with church leaders, politicians, workers, and youth. He chose to address the laity of the world on a broad spectrum of topics, and it is truly exciting to read his reflections and respond to the challenges he presents.
