The Little Homeland Of John Paul II

£40.00

Product description

Book is in very good condition. No marks on the pages of covers.

The town of my childhood, my family home, the parish church, the church of my Baptisim...I wish to cross these hospitable thresholds, bow before my native soil and its inhabitants, and utter the words of greeting given to family members upon their return from a long journey:
"Praised be Jesus Christ!"
With profound veneration I also kiss the threshold of the house of God, The parish church of Wadowice, and in it the baptistery, in which I was joined to Christ and received into the community of his Church. In this church I made my first confession and received my First Holy Communion. Here I was an alter boy. Here I gave thanks to God for the gift of the priesthood and, as Archbishop of Cracow, I celebrated the twenty-fifth, the silver anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood. (John Paul II)

This book is a following of the life of Pope John Paul II.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
