Skip to comments.Top 5 List of John Paul II's Writings
Posted on 04/07/2005 4:19:23 PM PDT by rbmillerjr
I find John Paul II's life inspirational and sensed great holiness when I was near him on his trip through Baltimore.
I have read "The Gospel of Life" and I thought it would be a contribution to start a reading list from other Catholics here on FR. I am impressed with the Catholic Freepers and look forward to all of your comments.
If you are interested please submit your TOP 5 List of JPIIs writings. Please list your top 5 with reasons why they are on your list.
Thanks in advance for your lists.
I don't know if I can come up with five, but ...
"Love and Responsibility"
"Theology of the Body"
"Splendor of Truth"
"Faith and Reason"
"Salvation through Suffering" (or something kind of like that ... "Salvifici Doloris" (more or less.)
Mother of the Redeemer
His encyclical letter on the Eucharist (2003)
Rich in Mercy
Crossing the threshold of Hope
The Rosary--> his addition of the Luminous mysteries
what can I say? I tried to devour what the man wrote.
JP2's writing takes effort. I sometimes feel like it was composed in Polish, written in Latin, translated into French, and then into English ... so no wonder I don't get it!
Thanks for starting this thread. Bookmarked.
