Pope John Paul II: May 2012 Archives

John Paul detail.jpegToday marks the first anniversary of the historic beatification of the iconic pope, John Paul II.

For many around the world, and for a long time, it is very true to say that the newly Blessed John Paul "has accompanied me through these years." Indeed he has.

The Church prays this prayer at Mass on the feast day of Blessed John Paul II, October 22:

O God, who are rich in mercy and who willed that the Blessed John Paul II should preside as Pope over your universal Church, grant, we pray, that instructed by his teaching, we may open our hearts to the saving grace of Christ, the sole Redeemer of mankind.

Rome Reports has a recap.

Blessed Pope John Paul II, pray for us.
