Cardinal Karol Wojtyła speaks about the great importance of the Confession of Faith by Pope Paul VI, the so-called Credo Populi Dei, published several months before. Moreover, he reflects on the constantly growing role of the Church in Poland for the universal Church, recognised also by Pope Paul VI.
Cardinal Wojtyła recalls his conversations with the then Pope, in which Paul VI asked for prayer support. As an example, Cardinal Wojtyła mentions a conversation at a time of strong controversy over sexual ethics (before the publication of the encyclical Humanae vitae) and the Pope's request to offer suffering for this intention.
