The Pope against evil of the 20th Century
12 September 2006 | by chasmilt777See all my reviews

This 150 minute Frontline documentary is a must see for all Catholics and non - Catholics, for all believers in Christ as well as non believers. Pope John Paul II lived at a time where evil was disguised and solidarity became harder and harder to find.

This PBS DVD video covers his entire life, from growing up in a Jewish town in Poland and the after war punishment by Stalin and the Communists, to fighting the new modern day holocaust in the form of abortion and birth control. This documentary shows how the Church became tougher than the Communist state, It also shows John Paul's iron determination under the surface and his personal inner resistance.

Many issues are brought up. Faith, the death penalty, the 1981 Marshall law in Poland, the assassination of Romero in El Salvador, and Pope John Paul's own assassination attempt. PBS, as always, does an excellent job in making one think. Everyone, no matter who are, will be enlightened after viewing this special documentary.
