Prayer of Thanksgiving for Pope John Paul II

Dear Lord, Thank you for giving us the gift of your holy servant Karol Josef Wojtyla – Pope John Paul II – to lead your church for so many years. He was truly a blessing to the church, our faith and the world. We have no doubt that he is with you now in paradise savoring the promise of eternal life. Hold him close to you and know that we are forever grateful for this gift of such a Holy Father, most truly a saint and shining example of Christ’s love. Amen.
