A prayer for reflection and meditation in memory of a beloved holy man, Pope John Paul II, who gave us useful and pure lessons for daily living.
My feeling is that even if you are not a Catholic, one cannot help but be inspired by the man in his role who was in touch with the Spirit of God in all. Only once in a while does a saintly person cross our paths, and then it is right to pay homage.
"You brought to many comfort
True shepherd of your flock.
Hallmarks of your wisdom shone
With kindness entwined
A loving knot.
So many on our planet loved
Your charity of ways.
Your path through life
Showed us well
How not to fall astray.
Let's take the teachings from your reign
Let's not forget the lessons
Let's ever remember your inspirations
Came directly from
Our Father in Heaven."
Prayer by Susan Helene Kramer
