A Priest who loved his call and all Gods people...
There are many, many books and articles on our beloved Pope John Paul, but none so nicely reviews his calling as a priest who was later our Pope as in this book: "The Legacy of John Paul II: Images & Memories" by Pope Benedict XVI (Author), Benedict (Author), Giancarlo Giuliani (Photographer), Michael J. Miller (Translator), Nicoletta V. Mackenzie (Translator). To me, the book is so easy to keep up with as it chronolizes the Pope's 26 year reign...his many travels as well as his many writings. The pictures captivated me and made me feel like I was journeying with Pope John Paul as he visited so many countries and walked among the people; yet revealing his "human" side when he was shot and showed the world the power of forgiveness when he visited and forgave his would-be assassin. His writings are deep and yet very charismatic both to his Catholic readers as well as non-Catholic. This book reminded me of how Christ wants us to live! When I saw the Pope in New Orleans and as I read and explored this book, I see him inviting the world...."To follow in His footsteps to help heal the world" as the Pope did! Would highly recommend this book!

Truly an "awe"some work that shares both in picture and prose much of our Beloved Pope John Paul II's papacy through the close lens of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (our current Holy Father). Beautifully shared, visually inspiring, insightfully written, a fantastic gift that will speak to your soul.
