It's a theme O'Connor has explored in a substantial body of work as novelist, biographer, and playwright.

A delegation sent by John Paul II from the Vatican to commemorate the 60th anniversary of D-Day is headed by Joseph Ratzinger, a former Nazi youth who, while resident in Rome for the previous 23 years, is known as `The Panzer Cardinal'.

Investigates the inner man, including Karol Wojtyla's life before he became Pope and his friendships with men and women. This book follows his life, from his birth in Poland in 1920, through the losses that shaped his childhood, the assassination attempt in 1981, and his public confrontations on the world stage, right up until his death.
Karol Wojtyla was born in Poland in 1920, he was 8 when his mother died, and 20 when his severe but loving father died during the Nazi occupation. God and the Catholic Church were from the beginning his consolation and strength. This biography describes life before he became pope.
