EWTN Catholic Q&A
Pope John Paul II intercession
Question from Daniel on 04-19-2005:

I would like to ask if there is a specific formula prescribed by the Church to ask for Pope John Paul II 's intercession for a miracle of healing? Is it just saying "Pope John Paul II, please pray for ..." or is there a specific prayer to be said?

Thank you very much!

You can use any formula you want, provided you do so as a private individual - that is, not in a public ecclesiastical setting. Once a Cause is begun, as I have no doubt it will be, the Postulator of the Cause will likely propagate specific prayer(s).
