Summary

Available in English for the first time, this engaging and enlightening biography of John Paul II argues the case that the late poper's life and deeds make him a worthy saint. A number-one best seller in Italy, Why He Is a Saint is an account of the late popers"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 Saintreveals the popers life through vivid, intimate anecdotes. Among the books 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 The book includes both unpublished as well as public correspondence, such as the open letter of forgiveness to Ali Agka, his attempted assassin.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 popers 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.
