The remarkable life of Pope John Paul II -- from his humble beginnings in a small Polish town to his role as the leader of the Roman Catholic Church -- is explored in this informative ABC News special. Join correspondent Bill Blakemore as he explores the people and surroundings that shaped this spiritual icon who was so beloved that he was affectionately christened the "People's Pope" by an adoring public. From his sincere and heartfelt advocacy of human rights to his tireless efforts to bridge the gap between the Catholic Church and other religions, Pope John Paul II broke from papal tradition to bring his faith into the new millennium and introduce Holy Scripture to a whole new generation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
