Our Most Holy Father:
How do we ever express a "Thank You" for your love and friendship that modeled Jesus obedience so well and showed God's love and mercy for each of us in His world. You gave us yourself in your joys and sufferings of every day in total service to God our Heavenly Father and honored Mary our Mother to "do whatever He tells you" in your complete trust in the Sacred Heart of her Son. You gave us an excellent example of a prayerful and peaceful life as you personally practiced the Eucharistic Mystery of the Lord's Love with the Rosary meditations of the greatest life ever lived.
Your presence among us shoned a radiant light bright as the sun as you taught the "Way, the Truth, the Life" in love to the ends of the earth. You filled the darkness in the world with light and hope and drew so many millions on the path to holiness with graceful use of your all gifts with humility.
In our hearts we ponder the awesome power of God as He used you as His instrument of peace to reflect the great dignity given to everybody and the divine life He offers to every soul. May you be rewarded in His riches of heaven for a fruitful life fully alive in God's grace. Such generous goodness never dies. Thank you for your wonderful witness showing us that the glory of God lives on with limitless love and mercy to give us hope in this world. You helped many to focus on Jesus and find the way back to God. We have been greatly blessed to have walked together with such a saintly soul. May our grateful prayers bless you. We will remember you as a loving father who laid down his life for us. You have kept the Faith and shared God's love well with His family. Thank you Pope John Paul II the Great! May eternal peace be yours.
