    One thought on “The Splendor of Truth: Encyclical Letter of John Paul II”

    1. My only complaint was that sometimes the Holy Father would say with a lot of words what could have been said simply But what he had to say and the encouragement to live a moral life were excellent.

    3. A wonderful encyclical by Pope Saint John Paul II addressing moral theology Yes, it can be a bit dense and some hard reading but it is really full of information.

    5. GREAT read on Christian morality It s one of those rare texts that takes you to the beginning root of the problem before bringing the conclusions It s so much better than reading something for which you need prior knowledge Very informative

    6. A must read for anyone interested in truth I d recommend either reading sections online or buy it paperbacks are super cheap from paulist press look online and just pick out sections from the table on contents to wet your appetite.

    7. This is one of those encyclicals either you love it or you resent its publication I am in the former camp, and I am happy to have come across so much good work lately in its defense.

    8. A hugely important encyclical for those interested in what the Church says on matters of morality and theology.
