""In the history of the Catholic Church no Pope can compete with John Paul II in the sheer number of Apostolic visits to the followers of Christ living in Diaspora among different nations and races, various cultural and religious communities. St. John's ""we believe in love"" (I John 4:16) and St. Paul's ""love of Christ urges us"" (II Cor 5:14) compels John Paul II to make so many pilgrimages throughout the world in order to bring contemporary man closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the ultimate foundation in creating One Family of Man in God. In response to his spiritual concern for the well-being of--not only the faithful--but all men of good will, people have expressed their gratitude to Pope John Paul II in manifold ways: from a pig offered by Papuans during his visit to New Guinea, to statues and monuments constructed in other visited places."" --From the Preface Father Andrzej ""Andrew"" Woznicki (1931-2014) served the people of the Polish Diaspora living in the San Francisco Bay Area as a chaplain, editor of a quarterly multicultural scholarly journal, and Professor of Philosophy at the University of San Francisco from 1967 until his retirement in 1997. In 2011, he returned to the Society of Christ motherhouse in Poland. Fr. Woznicki authored more than ten books and numerous articles covering topics ranging from multicultural and socioreligious immigrant issues, St. John Paul II's existential personalism, ecumenism, and metaphysics. He was also an accomplished mountaineer and alpinist.
