St. John Paul II is the beloved pope who wrote tirelessly on the dignity and beauty of the human person. He championed the young and inspired a desire for holiness, especially in marriage and the family.
There’s so much to be said about JPII.
Recently I read Chris Sefanick’s Way of Beauty, a translation of JPII’s retreat given on the topic before he became pope which includes reflections from four artists about the retreat. It was an absolutely amazing book, and I highly recommend every artist read it!
