Unpublished texts written by John Paul II on marriage are revealed

The John Paul II Institute of Rome presented the book during a meeting between scholars, theologians and experts. Livio Melina President, Pontifical John Paul II InstituteThere’s no love without rules, love must be directed and guided by a rule of life that adapts to the dignity of the individual. There’s no rule without spirituality, without a great, high ideal. There’s no spirituality without a home, or without an environment or without a communion of people. Przemyslaw Kwiatkowski Ph.D. candidate, Pontifical John Paul II InstituteKarol Wojtyla explains that the sanctification of the couple refers to all the dimensions of life, to the ordinary things, to the everyday things that go from ; morning to night. That’s why the theology of the sacrament of marriage is not a set of things: like duties, prohibitions, devotions…but a way to live all of that with faith. Karol Wojtlya wrote these documents in 1962 when he was archbishop of Krakow. He wrote them based on his pastoral experience with a group of young people and married couples, a few years after the Second World War, a time in which it was prohibited to have any form of association.
