Prayer for John Paul II

Our friend Brian sent this today... a beautiful prayer, thanks!

Prayer for John Paul II

O God, who in Thine ineffable providence wast pleased to number Thy servant John Paul amongst the sovereign pontiffs; grant, we beseech Thee, that he who reigned as the vicar of Thy Son on earth, may be joined in fellowship with Thy holy pontiffs for evermore. Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

—Missale Romanum (1962), Collect for a Deceased Pope
