frontline: pope john paul II - the millennial pope

video Testimonies about Faith

The heart of what ultimately defines Karol Woytyla, the man and the pope, is his religious faith. As Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete, who knows him well, says--"For him, the human being is the believing creature. What defines a human being is faith."

Below, four believers and non-believers talk in deeply moving detail about spiritual yearning, faith's mystery and meaning, and, finding or losing faith. (These videos are a longer interview with these four people, compared to what was seen in FRONTLINE's program.)
