Pope John Paul II was a priest with a poet's soul. Karol Wojtyla was a working poet and playwright throughout most of his priestly and pastoral caree.
His own plays and poems from this period —all written under various pen names—bear the stamp of his ambitious belief in the power of language.
Wojtyla had a unique voice and style, deeply religious and highly personal, limning the margins between thought and prayer.
As a poet, his themes were philosophical and existential: the human thirst for dignity; the meaning of work; the presence of God found in the beauty of nature; the wonders of human love as the gateway to divine love.
In a country suffering brutal occupation, Wojtyla was, in the words of one of his poems, a singer of the hidden God.
