George Weigel’s 14th Annual William E. Simon Lecture
John Paul II was not canonized for his accomplishments but for his sanctity. Yet he was the most politically consequential pope in decades, and it is a very obscure part of the world that does not display the footprints of the shoes of this fisherman. George Weigel analyzes seven lessons that John Paul’s “worldly” accomplishments teach twenty-first century statesmen, and suggests a few things the first Polish pope has to teach the rest of us.

William E. Simon Lecture
World War I was a civilizational cataclysm and its effects are much among us. In his thirteenth annual William E.
