John Paul II’s ‘Love and Responsibility’ – A Summary

02 May

What is the experience of falling in love? What is the meaning of the movements of the heart? What do my feelings mean? How does a relationship grow? How can I discern the truth of a relationship? The book “Love and Responsibility” by Karol Wojtyla, written just before he was elected Pope John Paul II, takes us deeper into this beautiful dimension of human life. The following summary, of the first part of the book, was written by Fr Richard Aladics, a Spiritual Director at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd, Homebush, Sydney.
