About the Author:

Karol Wojtyla, Pope John Paul II was born in Wadowice, Poland in 1920. He studied literature and drama in Krakow and later worked at a stone quarry and at a chemical plant. During the German occupation of Poland in World War II he began preparing for the priesthood and was ordained in 1946. Wojtyla became bishop of Krakow in 1958, archbishop in 1964, and cardinal in 1967. He was elected Pope in 1978 and is the 264th bishop of Rome.

From AudioFile:

Pope John Paul II frequently commented on the Rosary during his Wednesday audiences and during his pastoral travels. The repetition of the "Hail, Mary" "beats out the rhythm of human life" and offers a meditative window for accepting God's love and for understanding the mysteries embedded in the words of the prayer. Though this audio is not organized in a formal way, the comments offer surprisingly coherent lessons on piety, perseverance, and the value of faith in Mary's love. The Pope's thoughts on the Rosary bring a contemporary and interpersonal view to our relationship with Mary, the mother of God and a central figure to the world's Roman Catholics.
