Weigel Interview: TOB?
George Weigel just released a new book that is a sequel to Witness to Hope, his biography of John Paul. There’s an interview here: http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/246867/pope-s-legacy-fire-interview
From the interview:
"[John Paul's TOB writings] have changed the discussion of sexual morality in the Catholic Church, and they’re beginning to do so in the world. Believe it or not, a group of Columbia students self-organized an outdoor discussion of John Paul’s books on sexual ethics at Rockefeller Center recently. No one could have imagined any such thing happening in, say, 1978, when he was elected."
