What the Pope Said

All three of the last three popes had different styles. Pope John Paul II helped bring the teaching of the Church to Her members. Pope Benedict XIV was an academic and he helped us to understand why the things that Pope John Paul II showed us were true, by digging into the history and doctrine of the church.
