Idea licznych beatyfikacji i kanonizacji w pedagogii Jana Pawła II
Languages of publication
From the very beginning the Church has been caring for the vocation to sanctity which is perceived as the core of Christian life. Teaching sanctity may have different forms. One of the most essential of them is presenting the example of one’s life. The figures of saints and blesseds are of great help during the process of becoming a mature person. They had a crucial educational function in John Paul II’s teaching as they encouraged to follow the ideal of sanctity. Therefore, the concept of numerous beatifications and canonizations in Pope’s teaching has pedagogical significance. Implementing the rules of the pedagogy of sanctity is the mission of the Church which should be recalled in the context of John Paul II’s canonization.
