John Paul, who led the Roman Catholic Church from 1978 until his death in 2005, will be made a saint in April and remains for many Catholics a towering model of faith and commitment.Now available only in Polish, the 638-page book is dominated by deep theological reflections that reveal little of what the pope was otherwise thinking or doing when he wrote them.The picture that emerges deepens but does not jar with his public image, in contrast to the posthumous diaries of Mother Teresa -- who died in 1997 and was beatified by John Paul in 2003 -- that revealed her long periods of doubt about God's existence.Despite the questioning of his own role, there is no sign in the diaries from 1962 to 2003 that the pope's belief in God wavered.
