Description
 
Soon to be published in several languages worldwide, 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. It 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 The book includes both unpublished as well as public correspondence, such as the "open letter" of forgiveness to Ali Agca, his attempted assassin. It also examines the pope's severe acts of penitence and documents his miracles.  Hardcover, 194 pages
