John Paul II
MEMORY AND CONSCIOUSNESS

Memory and consciousness is not only a book-reflection about the time where the Holy Father happened to live, but also a philosophic comprehension of the epoch which was characterized by the evil of two totalitarian systems nazism and communism. The Pope investigates the roots of this evil, analyzes its nature and shows the ways of its overcoming by good.

The base of the book are the talks of John Paul II with the famous Polish philosophers priest Josef Tyshner and professor Kshishtoff Michalsky which were held in 1993 in Kastel Gandolfo, his summer residence. These recorded talks have been waiting for publication for a long time. Five years ago died one of the interlocutors of the Pope priest Josef Tyshner. The problems raised ten years ago are still of current importance, and the Pope returned to his reflections in order to (according to the Polish editors) extend and enrich them with new elements, in order to give comprehension of up-to-date phenomena in the light of past events where he tried to find the roots of the events which happen nowadays, to give the contemporaries, individual persons and whole nations a chance to awake their selfconsciousness through an attentive return to the memory. When this book of the Pope is read nowadays, the thought appears that the Holy Father was working on this book as he was on the threshold of the Eternity. And maybe therefore is his wish to give a hope to this world wounded by evil and patience, his aspiration for showing us that every human patience, every pain, every weakness is fraught with a promise of rescue, of joy so touching.

In the Belarusian language.
