About This Book

A handsome, accessible treasury containing the essential wisdom of Pope John Paul II on matters of life, faith, and conscience-one for each day
of the year. This inspirational collection of meditations, reflections, and aphorisms is drawn from Pope John Paul II’s writings, both from his unpublished personal archives as well as from published works, including sermons given during pastoral visits, official interviews, Youth Day messages, and encyclicals. To be read singly, as part of daily devotions, or as a whole, these meditations will enhance and inspire faith, sure to be read again and again as a constant source of spiritual renewal.
The meditations deal with themes closest to people’s daily lives: family, youth, faith, the elderly, children, forgiveness, life, death, illness, and much more. Each text is illustrated with an inspirational image. The images include reproductions of classic religious paintings and inspirational images as well as photographs from the Pope’s life and ministry. This handsome package makes a perfect gift or self-purchase.
