Bl. John Paul II and Canonization for next Year

Such a beautiful image of Bl. John Paul II with a group of young people at 
World Youth Day in Toronto, Canada in 2002

The Date for Canonization of Bl. John Paul II will now take place next Year
possibly in April though an official date has not been set yet. 

Prayer to implore Bl. John Paul II's intercession

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. Amen.
