Papa! You are like a father to me! I miss having you here with us, but I know you are actually even closer to all of us now. Thank you so much for all you did for our church and world - for showing us Jesus! Thank you for the Feast of Mercy, and please pray for us all that we might know Him and see Him as He really is in his love and mercy and stay close to Him. I know you and Terri Schindler-Schiavo are so happy with Jesus now, and I ask for you both to pray for us and guide us in creating a culture of life and civilization of love - please pray in His mercy, the Lord will remove the darkness from people's minds and hearts so that we may love, respect, honor and cherish every human being from conception to natural death and our God Who made us. Please pray that we all will be given the light of the Holy Spirit to discern the truth in the sometimes complex end-of-life situations and His grace to choose that truth. I got to shake hands with you in Rome, but I was too shy to speak and say, I love you" as I had memorized it in Polish - but I know you know now! Thank you, dear Jesus for JPII!!!
