BUILDING BRIDGES

$20.95

Building Bridges is about a unique friendship between Pope John Paul II and a Jewish woman from Poland, Lena Allen-Shore. They did not meet until 1996 but their lives had a number of surprising similarities: both were born in Poland at around the same time, raised in similar economic circumstances, both celebrated Polish culture through poetry, music, theatre and philosophy. During World War II, the young seminarian went underground to complete his studies while the young seminarian went underground to complete his studies while the young women assumed a Christian identity to survive. Decades later, it would be Lena Allen-Shore who encouraged the Pope to take up poetry once more. Scarred by the war and the unprecedented Holocaust of European Jews, Pope John Paul II and Lena Allen-Shore resolved to build bridges between Christians and Jews-John Paul by his journeys, meetings and public statements denouncing anti-Semitism, Lena Allen-Shore through her teaching and writing. As their friendship deepened, the Pope invited her to attend Key events celebrating Jewish-Christian dialogue, in Jerusalem and Assisi. This is an insightful and moving book about what may be the Pope's most important legacy, the building of bridges between Christians and Jews by witnessing to the Holocaust. The story of his unique friendship with a Jewish compatriot makes this achievement understandable in human terms.

CITY OF SAINTS A PILGRIMAGE TO JOHN PAUL II'S KRAKOW

product image
$15.00

“Karol Wojtyła, Pope John Paul II, was a man whose life was the expression of a richly textured and multidimensional soul. The many layers of that soul took on their first, mature form in Kraków.” – George Weigel
 
In this beautifully illustrated spiritual travelogue, New York Times bestselling author George Weigel leads readers through the historic streets of Kraków, Poland, introducing one of the world’s great cities through the life of one of the most influential Catholic leaders of all time.
 
“To follow Karol Wojtyła through Kraków is to follow an itinerary of sanctity while learning the story of a city.” Weigel writes. “Thus, in what follows, the story of Karol Wojtyła, St. John Paul II, and the story of Kraków are interwoven in a chronological pilgrimage through the life of a saint that reveals, at the same time, the dramatic history and majestic culture of a city where a boy grew into a man, priest, a bishop—and an apostle to the world.”
 
With stunning photographs by Stephen Weigel and notes on the city’s remarkable fabric by Carrie Gress, City of Saints offers an in-depth look at a man and a city that made an indelible impression on the life and thought of the Catholic Church and the 21st century world.

END AND THE BEGINNING

$17.99

""As March gave way to April in the spring of 2005 and the world kept vigil outside the apostolic palace in Rome, the pontificate of Pope John Paul II, then drawing to a poignant end, was already being described as one of the most consequential in two millennia of Christian history.""
With these words, world-renowned author and NBC Vatican analyst George Weigel begins his long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller "Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II. "More than ten years in the making, "The End and the Beginning: Pope John Paul II--The Victory of Freedom, the Last Years, the Legacy" tells the dramatic story of the Pope's battle with communism in light of new and recently disclosed information and brings to a close Weigel's landmark portrait of a man who not only left an indelible mark on the Catholic Church, but also changed the course of world history.
When he was elected pope in the fall of 1978, few people had ever heard of the charismatic Karol Wojty3a. But in a very short time he would ignite a revolution of conscience in his native Poland that would ultimately lead to the collapse of European communism and death of the Soviet Union. What even fewer people knew was that the KGB, the Polish Secret Police, and the East German Stasi had been waging a dangerous, decades-long war against Wojty3a and the Vatican itself. Weigel, with unprecedented access to many Soviet-era documents, chronicles John Paul's struggle against the dark forces of communism.
Moreover, Weigel recounts the tumultuous last years of John Paul's life as he dealt with a crippling illness as well as the "new world disorder" and revelations about corruption within the Catholic Church. Weigel's thought-provoking biography of John Paul II concludes with a probing and passionate assessment of a man who lived his life as a witness to hope in service to the Christian ideals he embraced.

GIFT OF BLESSED JOHN PAUL II

product image
$14.95

From the moment he appeared on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica on the evening of his election in October 1978, Pope John Paul II has captured the imagination and hearts of people around the world. This first-ever Polish pope the first non-Italian to be elected in five hundred years-set the tone of his entire pontificate in his first homily by exhorting us to "Open wide the doors for Christ."

As John Paul receives the title "Blessed" at his May 1 beatification, we can capture the vision he had for the church and for the world in a new book by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. Known for his gift of teaching the faith, Cardinal Wuerl explores the spiritual and pastoral wealth of John Paul's writings as found in his encyclicals and apostolic exhortations. The Cardinal unfolds these treasures for us, presenting not only Blessed John Paul's teachings, but also suggesting how we can apply them in our lives as we face the challenges of being a disciple of Christ in the world today.
