The Something Monologues

TSM20 : Christianity, Jesus & a Reading from Karol Wojtyla

Hi folks, TSM19 is still being edited, so I thought I’d post TSM20 first. In this evening monologue, I talk a little about my experience of Christianity and my feelings and thoughts about Christianity and Jesus and then I introduce you to the poetry of one of my heroes Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul 2). I am not very good at reading poetry out loud when I’m tired but I’m optimistic you’ll get a feel for how beautiful and powerful these poems really are. They say as much about Karol’s understanding of god, as his experience of being a man who feels separate from god, who yearns for total communion.

Some of you might be surprised at who I consider to be my heroes. But such is the mystery of man, that none of us ever really understands another !

It was a sad day for me when the fisherman’s ring was broken.

Enjoy !
