Feast of Pope Saint John Paul II
St. Pope John Paul II

Pope St. John Paul II comes and says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I come to you not only as Pontiff, but as priest. I tell you, this is a time in history when the Pope must make strides to unite the Church in the Truth. Within hearts are dangerous factions that would propose belief in sacramental life as a choice; yet souls would be able to partake in the sacraments despite lack of faith.”

“Of course, this is true today in many individual cases; but, I am speaking of a time when faith will no longer be a general prerequisite to a sacramental life.”

“Pray for this Pope and all Cardinals and Bishops. Pray to Mary, Protectress of the Faith.”

Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Prayer for Leaders in high positions

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, Who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.

Read Romans 1:32

Judgment of God on those who know the Commandments yet do not correct those whose sin deserves death

Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.
