John Paul II’s apology of human freedom

Karol Swatkowski


Contemporary man is particularly sensitive to the issues related to his freedom. However, not everything perceived as freedom is in fact freedom. In the face of this fascination with apparent freedom, which is presented as unlimited but in fact leads to enslavement, the Church has a particular task in forming a proper understanding of freedom. This task was undertaken, among others, by John Paul II. This article is an attempt to present the Pope’s concept of freedom based on truth, love and responsibility.
