Da Mihi Animas: Santo Subito: Remembering Pope John Paul the Great!

The Santo Subito video is amazing! I really do miss JPII, but I know he is close to us in the Church during these days!

Today is the 7th anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II! It is hard to believe that he is gone from us for that long already. Thankfully we have a wonderful Holy Father in Benedict XVI who continues to lead the Church beautifully toward Christ and the challenge to holiness. I wanted to post a tribute to JPII and found some very cool videos below. The first of them has the Holy Fathers prayerful voice reciting the Pater Noster and some prayerful words in Italian. The second is a beautiful video tribute to him.

 Just below is a prayer for the canonization of JPII that I found at this site.

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 splendor 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. Amen.
