October 14 – 22
O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the Church with Saint Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your Fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of Love to shine through him.
Trusting fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd. He has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving eternal communion with you.
As Vicar of Christ, he encouraged us to “Be Not Afraid,” to love the Rosary, Eucharistic Adoration and Divine Mercy. Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we implore, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Pope John Paul II, pray for us! Amen.
