CORK, Ireland, April 8, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- A new Irish book on Pope John Paul II to be released.
"The intention of this volume is to introduce John Paul to a new public, a younger generation… this volume is a fitting tribute both to his memory and to the enduring effect of his papacy." said American Archbishop Charles Browne & Papal Nuncio to Ireland. The Nuncio will launch the new publication in Ireland's Marian Shrine at Knock on April 27th 2014. The reason for the timing of the release, is John Paul's canonization by Pope Francis that week-end in Rome.
Divided into twenty-three short readable chapters, this book enables readers of all backgrounds to understand better St. John Paul's various writings. Below is a quick glance at some of the book's leading contributors:
Breda O'Brien (Journalist) writes on John Paul II and the dignity of women. Ray Kinsella (University College Dublin) recounts his mission for world peace. Ryan Connolly (Student) comments on his 'Letter to Artists,' while John Waters (Writer) addresses his thoughts on the worker. Fr. Alan O'Sullivan explains John Paul's hugely significant restatement of Catholic teaching on sexuality via 'the Theology of the Body,' while pro life leader Niamh Uí Bhriain (Life Institute) outlines the Pope's teaching on life issues and human dignity. Fr. Gerard Dolan writes on John Paul II and the Eucharist. Gareth Carroll (Youth 2000) discusses the 'World Youth Day' phenomenon.
