Why He is a Saint
Full Product Description
A number-one best seller in Italy, "Why He Is a Saint" is an account of the late pope's life, highlighting his deep Christian faith, his dedication to the Church, and his role in bringing down communism. This book delves deeply into Pope John Paul's spiritual essence, through the unprecedented light of the investigation into whether he merits sainthood.
"Why He Is a Saint" reveals the pope's life through vivid, intimate anecdotes. Among the book's startling revelations are his thoughts of retirement as his health declined, and the fact that he practiced the ancient ritual of daily self-flagellation. The book includes both unpublished as well as public correspondence, such as the "open letter" of forgiveness to Ali Agka, his attempted assassin. It also examines the pope's severe acts of penitence and documents his miracles.
This impassioned plea in favor of canonizing the pope as a saint has proven to be of profound interest to Catholics worldwide, as well as to anyone interested in faith and spirituality.
Why He is a Saint by Saverio Gaeta; Slawomir Oder was published by Rizzoli International Publications in November 2010. The ISBN for Why He is a Saint is 9780847836314.
