Episode Summary

The President, The Pope and The Prime Minister
Veteran journalist John O'Sullivan provides a dramatic account of how three great figures - Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and President Ronald Reagan - changed the course of history and how their collaborative efforts revived faith, prosperity, and freedom in the West.Each came to power and became much-needed beacons of optimism cutting through the despair that afflicted 1970s America, post-imperial Britain, and a Catholic Church rocked by social revolution. Ultimately, this triumphant political partnership resulted in the miraculous liberation of Eastern Europe. Combining their unique strengths - Reagan's relaxed self-confidence, Thatcher's stern abilities, and the Pope's hopefulness and love - they were able to overcome the clutches of Communism. Now, more than ever, everyone can benefit from their lessons of fearlessness, strength, and wisdom - The Heritage Foundationmoreless
