.- The English translation of Pope John Paul II’s latest book, entitled "Rise, Let Us Be on Our Way," has hit the bookstores. The much awaited translation comes two months after it’s original publication in Italian as “Alzatevi, andiamo!” and is also available as an audiobook and in a large-print edition.

The book is filled with Pope John Paul II's personal recollections of his life and his thoughts on issues facing the world now. It covers the period from 1958, when he was called from a canoeing trip to be told he was named a bishop of Krakow, to his election as the first Polish Pope in 1978.

"Rise, Let Us Be on Our Way," has also been described a call to action. In it, the Pope discusses the strength of mercy, the importance of harmony between faith, reason and the heart, and the necessity of encouraging children to pray. He also discusses the priestly celibacy and his passion for theatre.
