Pope John Paul II: Builder of Bridges DVD Description
As witnessed by the public outpouring of grief that attended his death, Pope John Paul II was more than just a Catholic leader--his deeply felt humanitarianism transcended race, religion, and culture and made him a truly beloved world figure. The Pope's intense desire to connect with all peoples of the globe was reflected in his many travels abroad (over 100 trips in 26 years, making him the most travelled pope in history); these voyages were not merely social visits, but profound attempts to heal the sometimes millennia-old rifts between the Catholic Church and the world's other faiths. The 264th pontiff was the first to visit England and meet with Anglican Church leaders; the first to travel to Eastern Orthodox countries since the Great Schism of the 11th century; the first to enter a mosque and reach out to Muslims; and, most significantly, the first to actively improve Christian-Jewish relations by visiting WWII concentration camps and the sacred Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Reporter John Roberts examines this extraordinary legacy of world peacemaking in the special CBS news report POPE JOHN PAUL II: BUILDER OF BRIDGES.
