Witness to Hope

I had the privilege of seeing George Weigel, Pope John Paul II’s personal biographer not long after the Polish Pope was beatified. I’ve spent the last couple weeks reading Weigl’s Witness to Hope which documents the Pontiff’s life and it’s been crazy. Crazy in a good way. It’s packed with history, theology, philosophy, letters and memories. I thought I’d share some of the most stricking passages so far. I’m hoping this will make you read it too ....

Please read the rest at Ignitum Today

I remember reading this book a few years ago and yes, it is totally crazy in a good way. Astonishing how even a biography of the man is so compelling.
