Prayer for the Intercession of St. John Paul II

Pilgrims venerate the blood relic at the Luminous Mysteries Chapel

O Blessed Trinity, we thank you

for having graced the Church with

Saint 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,

A rosary is touched to the blood relic in the Luminous Mysteries Chapel

he has given us a living image of

Jesus the Good Shepherd.

He 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,

through Christ our Lord. Amen.
