Thank you Dear LORD for our Papa, Pope John Paul ll. He truly was your presence to the world. He gave us a model way of holiness after which we should strive. To look at him was to see YOU. His prayer life, his adoration of YOU in the Blessed Sacrament, and his love and closeness to our Blessed Mother,led him to that place of total sacrifice and union with YOU in life, echoing the fiat of Our Blessed Mother, "Let it be done unto me according to thy word".In the end Dear Saviour,he offered all of his suffering in union with YOU to THE FATHER remembering YOUR words in the garden, Not as I would have it, but THY will be done. Through the prayers of Our Blessed Mother and St. Joseph help us Dear Jesus to live the way of holiness that our dear Pope John Paul ll lived. Amen.
