John Paul II knew the importance of prayer: he was known to pray for many hours each day, interceding for the world and growing ever closer in his relationship to God.

When we celebrate the feast day of the late pontiff, read and pray the official prayer to Saint John Paul II.

“Prayer joined to sacrifice constitutes the most powerful force in human history. In prayer, you become one with the source of our true light – Jesus Himself.”

Oh, St. John Paul, from the window of heaven, grant us your blessing! Bless the church that you loved and served and guided, courageously leading it along the paths of the world in order to bring Jesus to everyone and everyone to Jesus.

Bless the young, who were your great passion. Help them dream again, help them look up high again to find the light that illuminates the paths of life here on earth.

May you bless families, bless each family! You warned of Satan’s assault against this precious and indispensable divine spark that God lit on earth. St. John Paul, with your prayer, may you protect the family and every life that blossoms from the family.

Pray for the whole world, which is still marked by tensions, wars and injustice. You tackled war by invoking dialogue and planting the seeds of love: pray for us so that we may be tireless sowers of peace.

Oh St. John Paul, from heaven’s window, where we see you next to Mary, send God’s blessing down upon us all. Amen.
