Pope John Paul II: An Intimate Life

Pope John Paul II: An Intimate Life

The Pope I Knew So Well

This behind-the-scenes perspective offers a unique opportunity to experience Pope John Paul II’s character and reign, as well as a look at the inner workings of the Vatican. French journalist Caroline Pigozzi discovered a man both awe-inspiring and surprisingly warm and generous. Passionately prayerful and unimpressed by pomp and celebrity, John Paul II was the most-traveled and perhaps the most popular of the popes to date: a people’s pope. Pigozzi reveals the intimate details of his daily life, his sometimes surprising philosophies, his revolutionary desire for accessibility to ordinary people, and his relentless drive to unify the church. This book unveils, in a friendly and richly informative way, a close-up of the man whose “eyes radiated infinite goodness” and whose life touched so many.
