Mary Hugs Pope John Paul II, April 2

Today is the Third Anniversary of
the death of Pope John Paul II.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and
let perpetual light shine upon him.

"The desire to receive God's treasures and favors is universal.
But how few people aspire to wear themselves out and to suffer for the Son of God!"

St. John of the Cross

Hello Dearest Micki, :-)
My, thank you for this beautiful card! I believe we can all agree that that is how Mary most likely welcomed PJ II when he entered God's abode. Finally, he could hug and be hugged by the mother who stood by him all those years when his mother on earth died, when he was growing up, and those years of serving God faithfully. Thank you for this, our dearest Micki!

An abundance of grace be yours always!

Thankyou, Micki, for this treasured card--Totu tuus was the motto of John Paul II's pontificate--totally hers....this holy card expresses it perfectly!
I cried for a week after he died--what a beloved pope!!

Easter - What an example he was of dedication to Jesus through Mary.

D.S. - Thank you for reminding us of his motto. Maybe we should all think of what "our" motto could be. Then the trick would be to put it in another language...(hello John!!!) :-)

Jackie - and all the souls in Purgatory (I'm working on removing them so they will be there in heaven to help remove me.)
