Prayer on back:
Oh, Blessed Trinity, We thank You for having graced the Church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of Your Fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of Christ, and the splendor of the Holy Spirit to shine through him.
Trusting fully in Your infinite mercy and 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 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. Amen.
"A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who... raise their mind with humble confidence to God."
Story & Symbolism:
Pope John Paul II was Head of the Catholic Church and Sovereign of the State of Vatican City from 1978 to 2005. He was elected Pope by the Second Papal Conclave of 1978, which was called after the death of Pope John Paul I, who had been elected to replace Pope Paul VI in August, 33 days later. Cardinal Wojtyła was elected on the third day of the conclave and in tribute to him took the name of his predecessor. John Paul II is remembered as helping to bring an end to Communist rule in his native Poland and, finally, in Europe as a whole.
