What is the meaning of life? Where and how can a person obtain it? Filipinos are renowned for their great love for Pope John Paul II, who was canonized as a Saint last April 27, 2014. Many have been inspired and were given hope because of his divine presence. Tis existential-phenomenological study aims to understand how selected Filipinos were able to fnd meaning in life through the inspiration brought by Saint John Paul II. Specifcally, the objectives of this research are as follows: to identify the direct and indirect experiences of the participants with the late pontiﬀ, to know how these experiences aﬀected their way of fnding meaning in life, and to determine the meaning in life that they have ascribed from these encounters. Te researcher interviewed three Filipino Roman Catholics who experienced a spiritual rebirth, a transition from meaninglessness to fnding meaning in life through Saint John Paul II. A detailed account of each case is provided. Te thematic analysis yielded nine themes common among the participants’ lived experiences: Personal Connection, Fatherly Relationship, Selﬂessness, Mission and Service, Christ-like Image, Call to Holiness, Suﬀering, Courage, and Christian Joy. Based on the results of this study, the phenomenon of fnding meaning in life through Saint John Paul II can be summarized into four statements, (1) existential meaning is personally constructed; (2) it can be achieved by establishing relationships with the Divine and with others; (3) religion and spirituality play an important role in the meaning-making process; and (4) meaning can be obtained by performing one’s vocation in life (creative source), experiencing a sense of awe, wonder, and transcendence (experiential source), and accepting suﬀering (attitudinal). Te researcher concludes that an inspirational fgure like Saint John Paul II can be a great source of meaning in life. Implications and recommendations are discussed.
