Overview
"I have looked for you, you have come to me, and I thank you." -John Paul II, to the young people gathered in St. Peter's Square to pray for him the night before he died. John Paul II, We Love You! not only tells the stories of young people whose lives were touched by the pope, it also offers on-the-scene coverage from Rome of this well loved pope's final decline, death and funeral. Fr. Peter Mitchell, a priest of the JPII generation, happened to be in Rome during that time and felt called to share those unprecedented days with as many people as possible via e-mail. He became a "sleep-deprived, emotionally drained and physically exhausted scoop reporter" writing moving accounts that soon spread globally via the Internet. The testimonies from young people-combined with Fr. Mitchell's vivid account of the pope's passing-attest to the life-changing impact of this great man on an entire generation of Catholics. Father Mitchell includes an eyewitness account from Rome of John Paul II's death and funeral.

Do Not Be Afraid  Feb 17, 2008
This new work revisits the days of John Paul II's final illness and death and the election of his successor in the spring of 2005. It began with the daily journal of an American priest who witnessed the events. The author, Father Peter Mitchell, traces his vocation to the words and presence of John Paul II at World Youth Day 1993 in Denver, Colorado. Each chapter in his book opens with his own observations and reflections surrounding events of April 1-19 in Rome, and includes memories submitted by several other World Youth Day alumni from across the U.S. They speak of the magnetism of the Pope, his penetrating eyes, and his strong appeal to young people. At WYD in Toronto in 2002, one writer recalls, hundreds of thousands of youth shouted "John Paul II. We love you" and the pope responded, "John Paul II, he loves you too!" The contributors frequently mention that John Paul was the only pope they ever knew, and recall watching him celebrate Mass on Eternal World Television Network. Many mention a particular moment in which they felt the pope was speaking directly to them with words like "Trust God because he trusts you," and "If you know in the depths of your heart that you are being called to the priesthood or consecrated life, do not be afraid to follow Christ on the royal road to the cross."

These outpourings from members of the JPII generation testify to the Pope's charisma and holiness. The accounts of his final days, funeral tributes, and election of his successor signal the strength and resilience of the Catholic Church.
 
JPII We Love You  Dec 12, 2007
Father Mitchell is a great, enthusiastic speaker. He writes the same way. The book can be very emotional at times as we recall the last days of Pope John Paul II, but more importantly, his life. You can't help but be a better person for having read this book.

 
A loving account  Oct 23, 2007
Fr. Peter Mitchell's personal account of the days of 2005 that made the world pause and recognize the Church as a force in the world was truly inspiring. We were able to relive the events of John Paul II's death and the election of Benedict XVI through his eyes, as well as the young people that were there with him in Rome. We all loved John Paul II, and it was touching to read of how he touched so many lives. Those same young people love Benedict XVI too and recognize him as their Papa in faith. A wonderful book!!!!
