Santo Subito

May 1, 2011 the first step to making this come to fruition will take place as the entombed remains of Pope John Paul II will be on public view for veneration. Pope Benedict XVI will beatify his adored predecessor.

Father of Love and Life,
In every age you inspire your people
Through the teaching and example
Of leaders who are living witnesses of your Kingdom.

We thank you for Blessed John Paul II,
Whom you raised up to point the way
To a Culture of Life.

May we learn from his teachings
That the defense of the unborn
Stands at the center of our moral priorities.

May we learn from his example
How to defend life with courage and joy.

May we echo his conviction
That the outcome of the battle for life
Has already been decided,
Because Jesus Christ is Risen from the dead.

May we, remembering Blessed John Paul II,
Always proclaim, celebrate, and serve
The Gospel of Life.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
