Pope to publish book of poetry

An unprecedented book of poetry written by Pope John Paul (news - web sites), including the pontiff's thoughts about choosing his successor, will soon be published in his native Poland, the Catholic Information Agency said Monday. The agency said the book's working title was "The Rome Triptych, the Meditations of John Paul II" and that it had been written over the last several months. The pope, the author of several best-selling books about faith, has not published any poems since the start of his pontificate in 1978. " John Paul's work is a poetic meditation about themes of finality, a last will of sorts. The pope will discuss the choice of his successor, for example," the church-based agency wrote.
