In Commemoration of Pope John Paul II

zenit - To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the election of Pope John Paul II, the Vatican Television Center has released a five-DVD series that compiles extensive coverage of his life and pontificate.

"The Pope Who Made History," which is being distributed exclusively by HDH Communications, chronologically follows the life of Karol Wojtyla. The first DVD spans his childhood to his election as Pope on Oct. 16, 1978.

The second and third DVDs cover the years 1988-1995, with extensive attention to the fall of the Berlin Wall and John Paul II's role as a witness to peace.

The fourth DVD covers the years leading up to 2000, and the last DVD covers the last years of the Pontiff's life, including coverage of his final farewell to the faithful in Rome.

The DVD set is being offered through Nov. 16 (in English I think that might mean until Nov 16th, does it?) at a 30% discount for purchases made through the Internet.
