Poems to inspire. Poems to illuminate. Poems to share with friends, family, and the faithful. In this moving collection, Pope John Paul II contemplates the great questions of our lives-the mystery of creation, the invisibility of beginnings, the end of existence, and eternity that follows. Roman Triptych: Meditations contains the first poems written and published during his pontificate. Beautifully bound and copiously illustrated, this handsome edition features full-color plates of Michelangelo's study sketches for the painting of the Sistine Chapel, as well as facsimiles of the Pope's original handwritten text. Here, presented with passion and lucidity, are meditations reminding us of the wonderment of God's work, the presence of the Spirit, and the power of the eternal Word of Christ. Translated by Jerzy Peterkiewicz.
