John Paul II's "Secret Letters" Explained

In response to recent headlines, Jason Evert explains the story behind Pope St. John Paul II’s letters to Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, a married Polish philosopher and friend of the pope before and during his papacy. Jason points out that—despite what our oversexualized culture would have us think—it is possible to have a genuine, chaste friendship with someone of the opposite sex. As Pope St. John Paul II said, “God uses human friendship to lead hearts to the source of divine charity.”

Jason is a presenter in Ascension Press’ new Theology of the Body program, YOU: Life, Love and the Theology of the Body.
