In the year of the beatification of Pope John Paul II, a new captivating documentary highlights some innovative aspects of his Pontificate and draws a parallel between him and his successor Benedict XVI.
The relationship with Catholic youth, the pastoral trips, the devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary: how these aspects are expressed by John Paul II and how afterwards have they been shaped on the personality of Benedict XVI? Can we trace a line of continuity from John Paul II to Benedict XVI?
The documentary answers to these questions, with the aid of personalities from the Ecclesiastic world and vaticanist journalists.
The exclusive footage of major events of John Paul II and Benedict XVI's Pontificate and of the funeral of John Paul II is from the Vatican Television Center.
