The Homilies, Audiences, and Messages of Pope John Paul II (Spanish Edition) (8 vols.)
by John Paul II
The Homilies, Audiences, and Messages of Pope John Paul II (Spanish Edition) (8 vols.) contains the official messages, homilies, and audiences of Pope John Paul II. These huge volumes, compiled and built by Logos Bible Software, contain the Holy Father’s teachings from 1978 to 2005 and are not available in this chronological digitized format anywhere else—nor in this quantity. Each Sunday homily, Wednesday audience, and public message has been assembled in these volumes, providing authoritative Catholic teachings on issues of faith and morality.
These massive volumes include 26 years of Pope John Paul II’s messages to bishops, archbishops, cardinals, and world leaders, his public prayers, public audiences, homilies, and his Motu Proprio—an apostolic letter, regarded as an official document, that carries an administrative or instructional purpose. Less formal than an Apostolic Constitution, the Motu Proprio carries an official statement that enacts only minor changes to law, procedure, or persons and institutions.
Having these volumes in Logos’ format brings immeasurable value to your sermon or homily writing or your small-group study. Search for any of the Holy Father’s homilies during his 26 years of preaching and teaching. Or search his homilies and audiences for specific topics: his sayings on confession, say, or on the Holy Spirit—or find all of his references to Genesis 1. You can even start each morning with a homily or message that the Holy Father spoke on that same day between 1978 and 2005.

About the Author
John Paul II (Karol Józef Wojtyla) (1920–2005) served as Pope for 26 years (1978–2005). In 1942, he felt called to the priesthood and began courses in the clandestine seminary of Krakow. Wojtyla was ordained to the priesthood on November 1, 1946, and shortly after, was sent to Rome where he worked under Garrigou-Lagrange. In 1958 he was appointed as the titular bishop of Ombi and auxiliary of Krakow and in 1964 was appointed as the archbishop or Krakow. Three years later, he was elevated to cardinal.
In 1978, Karol Wojtyla was elected pope, where he took on the name John Paul II. As pope, he was instrumental in ending communism in his native Poland. He significantly improved the Catholic Church’s relationship with Judaism, Islam, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Anglican Communion. He has been acclaimed as one of the most influential leaders of the twentieth century.
