 Our Description


Robert Stackpole, Director of the Marians' John Paul II Institute, does a masterful job of explaining the scriptural roots of the papacy in St. Peter, the first Pope.

He also delves into the ministry of the Pope in the life of the early Church, and then makes clear why the Pope has universal jurisdiction in the Church as the successor of St. Peter.
