O 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 the cross of Christ,
and the splendour of the Holy Spirit, 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.
Please pray for the intercession of the late Pope John Paul the Great that he may seek a miracle healing for a friend of mine, also by the name of John Paul, that he may be saved at this time. He is currently in a coma in hospital.
Update: Wed, 17 June at 4pm. Thanks for the prayers. John Paul remains in a coma but things are looking more hopeful and so please, if you can, keep those prayers coming. I'll keep you updated.
Update: Fri, 19 June at 10pm. JP is showing signs of recovery and whilst he remains sedated the doctors are more hopeful. Praying for a miracle is effective and where there was love now we have hope. Thanks.
Update: Sun, 21 June at 10pm. The prayed for miracle has happened! John Paul continues to improve and is now responsive. He remains heavily sedated but the doctors hope to remove some tubes on Monday/Tuesday from his throat. He is aware of those around him. Again, huge thanks for all your continuing prayers.
