I just received this request and hope that you all will join me in praying for this young man and his family.
Novena in Honor of Pope John Paul II
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 your Son's cross, and the splendor of your Holy Spirit to shine through him. Trusting fully in your Divine mercy, and in the intercession of Mary our Immaculate Mother, he has given us aliving 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-ESPECIALLY THE FULL RECOVERY OF JAMES BROGAN-hoping that Blessed John Paul will soon be numbered among your saints. Amen.
Blessed John Paul II, pray for us!
