This excerpt from "John Paul II - The Millennial Pope" explores the roots of the Pope's ardent devotion to the Virgin Mary and the meaning she has held for him throughout his life.

Note: This excerpt is from the beginning of the "Women" segment of the program which explores the connections and contradictions between John Paul II's devotion to the ultimate embodiment of womanhood--the Virgin Mary--and his conflict with women over the issues of birth control and the ordination of women.

You'll need RealPlayer or Windows Media Player to watch the clip.
