Karol Wojtyla, who would later become St. John Paul II, was a champion of human dignity and defender of human freedom. In his incredible life, he witnessed the horrors that can be inflicted against human dignity, and discovered, through his suffering, pilgrimage of faith, and intellectual work, that only Jesus Christ ensures and protects the meaning and dignity of the human person. His insight left an enormous legacy within the Church that has only begun to be explored. To understand John Paul II’s unique approach to anthropology, we must first understand who he is, as a person, and what exactly he means when he teaches that the human person “cannot live without love” and can only discover himself by drawing near to Christ (Redemptor Hominis, no. 10).
