O BLESED TRINITY, WE THANK YOU for having graced the Church with Saint John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of love to shine through him
Trusting fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd. He has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving eternal communion with you. Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we implore, through Christ our Lord. Amen. (by Donald Cardinal WUERL, Archbishop of Wash.)
I just found this prayer today. Asking for Saint John Paul and Mary’s intercession, means they are adding their prayers to ours when we ask Jesus for graces and help that we need.
