Notes

  1. The headings are taken from John Paul II’s The Spirit: Giver of Life and Love (Boston: Pauline Books & Media, 1996). All chapter titles are taken from the Vatican website.
  2. Audience #1 does not appear in the table of contents on the special section of the Vatican website, but the audience is still on the Vatican site.
  3. This special section of the Vatican website appears to have some formatting issues. All of the emdashes appear as — rather than as —.
  4. The Audiences marked with an * (audiences #34 and #38) do not appear in The Spirit: Giver of Life and Love, nor do they appear correctly on the special section of the Vatican website (rather, they appear there as duplicates of other audiences).
