Pope John Paul II has definitely led a life filled with singular events. He is the first non-Italian Pope in nearly 500 years. Frontline: John Paul II - The Millennial Pope presents the historical side of this fascinating man's life. It chiefly focuses on the life of Karol Wojtyla and how he evolved into such a deeply religious man, eager to teach others about Christianity. The pope's early family losses, the Nazi invasion of his Polish city and other key events have all clearly helped shape this man's faith and belief in God. Includes footage of the Pope traveling and interacting with many of the world's Catholics. The viewer will also see some of the startling moments surrounding the assassination attempt made on Pope John II's life back in 1981. This video reminds everyone that a number of truly fateful events must occur in order to produce someone like John Paul II, the world's first Polish Pope. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
