Here is John Paul's extraordinary journey from humble origins in southern Poland to the See of Peter. The life of Karol Wojtyla, one of the longest serving and best loved popes, was marked by the loss of his family at an early age, World War II, the Nazi occupation and Communist rule in Poland, his interest in the theatre, a great intellect, academic carreer, vocation, and love of pastoral work. This is the story of a significant religious, moral and even political figure who towered above others in the whirlwind of the twentieth century.
