ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
Tuesday, 19 October 2004
I cordially greet all the inhabitants of Kaszuby who have come on pilgrimage to the tombs of the Apostles. I am pleased to greet you, together with your Bishop, whom I thank for his kind words.
You have a special reason for making this pilgrimage: the beatification of the Servant of God, Bishop Konstantyn Dominik. It is right that you endeavour with prayers to sustain the process of the recognition of his holiness, which began in 1961. This is an important contribution, because it witnesses to the veneration that the candidate to the honours of the altar enjoys, and at the same time creates a spiritual atmosphere of openness to the action of grace that prepares the ground for miraculous interventions. May the faithful Pastor of your Diocese continue to defend his cause with special care!
Please convey my greeting to your loved ones and to all the faithful of the Church in Pelplin. I cordially bless you all: in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Praised be Jesus Christ!
