Prayer for Intercession of Pope John Paul II


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, in the hope that he will soon be numbered among your saints. Amen.
From EWTN

Opm
Blessed Pope John Paul the Great.
Pope Benedict will beatify Pope John Paul II on Sunday 1st May.
At present many Catholics around the world unofficially refer to that wonderful pope as “Pope John Paul the Great”; (as is evidenced by the fact that Google records this title countless times) however; he has never been officially declared “Great” by The Church.
Perhaps if thousands of us were immediately to write a letter or send an email (benedictxvi@vatican.va) to Pope Benedict humbly requesting him to use the forthcoming occasion of the beatification of Pope John Paul to refer to him as “Blessed Pope John Paul the Great” it would bring great joy to the heart of millions of people.
All we need to write is:
Dear Holy Father, may I humbly request you to use the forthcoming occasion of the beatification of Pope John Paul II to refer to this wonderful pope in your sermon as Blessed Pope John Paul the Great.

Please write “Pope John Paul” on the top left hand side of your envelope
You can mail your letter to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI
Vatican City.

Or send your email to benedictxvi@vatican.va
