St. Pope John Paul II

City of Saints: A Pilgrimage to John Paul II's Krakow

$15.00

"Karol Wojtyla, Pope John Paul II, was a man whose life was the expression of a richly textured and multidimensional soul. The many layers of that soul took on their first, mature form in Kraków." - George Weigel

In this beautifully illustrated spiritual travelogue, New York Times bestselling author George Weigel leads readers through the historic streets of Kraków, Poland, introducing one of the world's great cities through the life of one of the most influential Catholic leaders of all time.

"To follow Karol Wojtyla through Kraków is to follow an itinerary of sanctity while learning the story of a city." Weigel writes. "Thus, in what follows, the story of Karol Wojtyla, St. John Paul II, and the story of Kraków are interwoven in a chronological pilgrimage through the life of a saint that reveals, at the same time, the dramatic history and majestic culture of a city where a boy grew into a man, priest, a bishop--and an apostle to the world."

With stunning photographs by Stephen Weigel and notes on the city's remarkable fabric by Carrie Gress, City of Saints offers an in-depth look at a man and a city that made an indelible impression on the life and thought of the Catholic Church and the 21st century world.

    Teachings for an Unbelieving World: Newly Discovered Reflections on Paul's Sermon at the Areopagus

    $20.00

    Teachings for an Unbelieving World is a newly discovered work written by St. John Paul II--then Archbishop Karol Wojtyla of Kraków--in the years just after Vatican II. He uses St. Paul's sermon to the people of Athens in Acts 17 as a framework for articulating the faith in a culture of skepticism and unbelief. These thirteen brief reflections provide compelling teaching for Catholics in today's post-Christian world and give fresh insight into JPII's pontificate. This is the first English-language publication of this important work.

    St. John Paul II composed these thirteen reflections at a unique point of convergence in history--the closing of Vatican II in 1965 and the 1966 observance of one thousand years of Christianity in Poland.

    Teachings for an Unbelieving World is an extended meditation on Acts 17 where Paul speaks to the cultural elite of Athens after he observed an altar of an unknown god in the city. Quoting from both the Bible and the documents of Vatican II, John Paul II draws timely wisdom from the apostle's mission to bring the truth of the Gospel to a worldly culture of sophistication and disbelief, one not unlike our own.

    The future pope reveals Paul's memorable encounter as an enduring framework to boldly present the core truths of Catholic faith to those living under Poland's communist regime. In so doing, JPII demonstrates how relevant Paul's words are today and equips us to meet the challenges of proclaiming the faith in our times.

    Teachings for an Unbelieving World affirms the continuity of Catholic faith about:

  • humanity's place in God's creation;
  • our search for meaning, truth, and freedom;
  • addressing a culture of unbelief;
  • the gift of redemption in Jesus Christ;
  • the grace of the Holy Spirit;
  • the role of the Church in the world;
  • the power of the Eucharist;
  • the redemptive and self-giving nature of human love; and
  • the importance of prayer.

    Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II

    $24.99

    With unprecedented cooperation from John Paul II and the people who knew and worked with him throughout his life, George Weigel offers a groundbreaking portrait of the Pope as a man, a thinker, and a leader whose religious convictions defined a new approach to world politics- and changed the course of history.

    The man born Karol Józef Wojtyla played a crucial yet underrated role in some of this century's most momentous events. This includes the fall of communism, the Holy See/Israel negotiations of 1991-92, the disintegration of the Nicaraguan, Chilean, and Paraguayan regimes during the 1980s, and the unprecedented papal visit to Cuba. Witness to Hope explains how it is that this "man from a far country," as he describes himself to the Roman crowds on the night of his election, did all of that, and what his accomplishments might portend for the future of both the Church and the world.

    George Weigel, a Senior Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, is a Roman Catholic theologian and one of America's leading commentators on issues of religion and public life. He has been writing about the Pope since the first days of his pontificate, and became good friends with him. He is the author or editor of fourteen books, including The Final Revolution: The Resistance Church and The Collapse of Communism.

    "A tremendous achievement."
