John Paul II – Christianity – man

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ

Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Krakow was elected Pope thirty years ago. He chose the name of John Paul II. I remember his predecessor to the Apostolic See justifying this name, referring to the counciliar popes: John XXIII and Paul VI.

It was just after the Council, which made some people expect some changes in the Church’s attitude towards ethics, especially sexuality. »

Conscience or ethical situationism?

Fr. IRENEUSZ SKUBIŚ
