OCT. 22, 2017:
ST. JOHN PAUL II, PRAY FOR US!
This year, the feast of St. John Paul II falls on a Sunday. Nevertheless, in some places, it will be celebrated as a feast and we would like to remember our dearly beloved John Paul II to thank God for giving us a holy Pope who spent his life till the last second to serve God, His Church and all souls.
O God, who are rich in mercy
and who willed that Saint John Paul the Second
should preside as Pope over your universal Church,
grant, we pray, that instructed by his teaching,
we may open our hearts to the saving grace of Christ,
the sole Redeemer of mankind.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Collect prayer, Mass proper
