Good news for admirers of (soon to be) St. John Paul II. His personal notes, written over several decades of his life, will be published in book form on February 5 by Polish publishing house Znak. La Stampa reports that the book will be called I Am in God’s Hands: Personal Notes 1962-2003, and that “the book contains ‘the most important personal, innermost questions and moving reflections and prayers that marked [the Pope’s] everyday life.’ This includes ‘notes that show his concern for those dear to him – friends and collaborators – and for the Church that was entrusted to him.'”
These are the very notes that John Paul’s last will and testament called for Stanislaw Dziwisz to burn after his death, but who could argue that that would have been a good idea?
The book is on the Znak webpage here. I hope publication of the English translation will not be far behind.
