Holy Father, John Paul II
You said Be Not Afraid.
You said Use What You Have.
You said Defend Life.
You said the Kingdom of the Lord is at Hand.
You said Love and Pray to Mary.
You said Follow Jesus Christ.
John Paul II, we love you.
John Paul II, you are The Great.
You made a difference.
You are our witness to hope.
You taught us the lessons of suffering.
You continue to be the light for our life.
Now that the Angels have carried you home,
We know you see us from the window of our Father’s house.
May God Bless and hold you.
