Prayer to implore favor through the intercession of Blessed John Paul II
O Blessed Trinity,
we thank You for having
graced the Church with Blessed 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,
and 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,
hoping that he will soon be numbered among Your saints.
With ecclesiastical approval
AGOSTINO CARD. VALLINI
Vicar General of His Holiness
for the Diocese of Rome
