Prayers of St. John Paul II
"Walk towards Christ. He alone is the solution to all your problems. He alone is the way, the truth and the life; he alone is the real salvation of the world; he alone is the hope of mankind."
- Pope, St. John Paul II
Prayer for St. John Paul II's Intercession
O Holy Trinity, we thank you for having given to the Church Pope John Paul II, and for having made him shine with your fatherly tenderness, the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of love.
He, trusting completely in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, has shown himself in the likeness of Jesus the Good shepherd and has pointed out to us holiness as the path to reach eternal communion with you.
Grant us, through his intercession, according to your will, the grace that we implore, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Pope Saint John Paul II's
Prayer to Our Lady
You are blessed among all women! Blessed are you who have believed. The Mighty One worked marvels for you: the marvel of your Divine Motherhood; the marvel of your Immaculate Conception; the marvel of your "let it be done to me!"
You were so continually associated with the work of our redemption, associated with the cross of our Savior - that even your heart was pierced at the side of His Heart! And now in the glory of your Son, you unceasingly intercede for us poor sinners. You watch over the Church whose mother you are. You watch over each of your children. You obtain from God, for us, all these graces symbolized by the rays of light streaming from you open hands. If only we dare to ask them from you and come to you with the confidence and simplicity of a child, and so guide us unceasingly toward your Son, Jesus. Amen.
