At the centre of Popes agenda is faith. John Paul II is not a man with faith, his identity is faith. What defines a human being is faith. It is a judgement, a position a stand that you take with respect to everything. The most tireless moral voice of a secular age, he reinded humankind of the worth of individuals in modern world. In his years as Pope, John Paul achieved more in building ties and understanding between Catholics and Muslims than any other leader in Catholic Church history. He travelled to Casablanca signalling to the Christian world the need to confront with Islam.
