Private papers of Bl. John Paul II to appear in book form



Krakow, 18 January 2014: The private papers of Blessed John Paul II will be published in February in book form, despite the late Pontiff’s instructions that they should be burned.

In his final testament, Pope John Paul II directed his personal papers should be destroyed. “I ask that Father Stanislaw see to this,” he wrote, referring to his private secretary. But after the Polish Pontiff’s death, “Father Stanislaw”—now Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow—announced that he would override the Pope’s wishes because the papers had great historical importance.

The private papers will be released in February by the Polish publisher Znak, under the title I Am in God’s Hands: Personal Notes, 1962-2003. Source: CWN
