100th ANNIVERSARY OF SAINT JOHN PAUL II' S BIRTH
PRAYER OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
Dear brothers and sisters,
as we remember the centenary of the birth of Saint John Paul II let us turn to him to ask for his intercession:
Intercede so that we may always remain faithful to the Gospel.
Intercede so that we may know how to open wide the doors to Christ.
Intercede so that in these difficult times we may be witnesses of joy and mercy.
Intercede so that we may know how to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters who suffer, recognizing in their faces, the Face of the Lord.
Help us with your intercession not to allow ourselves to be robbed of hope, and to be men and women who journey in the certainty of faith.
