Pope John Paul II will probably go down in history as one of the great Popes and will surely be granted the name Pope John Paul II the Great, will also probably be named a Doctor of the Church, and it is more than likely that he will be canonised.

It would be impossible to write all that this man has meant to the Church and to the whole world, all we can say is that he certainly deserves the welcome in Heaven:

"Well done, good and faithful servant." 

His teachings will prove to be a treasure-house of sound and solid Catholic Teaching of the Truth in a time of harsh criticism of true Christian ideals, the complete truths of the Gospel and Apostolic Tradition and in an era of relativism, nihilism, humanism and every other un-Godly 'ism' since the time of the so-called 'enlightenment'.

These few pages won't even attempt to summarise what effect this man has had on his flock, his followers and the whole world. Instead they will point you to a little on his life and some of his writings and teachings.

His thoughts on Philosophy have opened the door to a series of teachings which he calls the "Theology of the Body" and this may well be one of his greatest legacies. His clear understanding of who we are, what we are and why we are, in relation to God and to each other, are taken from his deep contemplation of the Holy Scriptures. He saw the revelation of God in all its beauty through the eyes of God's creatures and developed a most beautiful Christian Humanism showing us the way God intended us to be and how we are to relate to each other right from the very beginning. He saw no distinction in race, colour or creed but rather saw the Image of God in every living person.

This section will attempt to gather together as many of his teachings as possible, they are a 'treasure chest', a collection of very 'rare jewels', a legacy that will go down in history much like the writings of Saint Augustine and Saint Thomas Aquinas. 

John Paul II was a modern man for a modern era who held on to the eternal truth that never changes, as much as modern society thinks it should. He was neither conservative nor liberal he was simply Catholic and all it has stood for since the start of the Church almost 2,000 years ago. Truth doesn't come in shades of grey - half truths are lies, half truths are compromising lies, half truths are the lies of tolerence when the heart knows othewise.


Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'. Prayerful Thoughts & Thoughtful Prayers is a little collection of prayers and thought-provoking stories, and a few links to some other really nice websites. Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina. Please also pay a visit to  Moytura's Irish Bookshop where you can find books on the history of Christianity in IrelandIrish Prayers and Celtic Christianity
