CNA Staff, Nov 18, 2020 / 01:00 pm (CNA).- A new book on St. John Paul II examines the relationship of the Polish pope with Central and Eastern European countries during the Cold War.

“Blood of your Blood, Bone of your Bone: The Pontificate of John Paul II (1978-2005) and the Churches in Central and Eastern Europe” is a 1,510-page volume with contributions from more than 50 authors.

At a virtual book launch Nov. 17, Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski of Kraków pointed out that the book’s title comes from the words that John Paul II spoke during his first apostolic journey to Poland in June 1979.
