Blessed John Paul

Pope John Paul II , born Karol Józef Wojtyła (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005), reigned as Pope of the Catholic Church from 1978 until his death in 2005. He was the second-longest serving Pope in history and the first non-Italian since 1523.

Important Dates In The Life Of Pope John Paul II Pope John Paul II waves as he arrives at Miami International Airport at the start of his 1987 trip to the United States. (CNS photo/Joe Rimkus Jr.)The longest reigning pope in modern history, John Paul II, took his message on the road, visiting 129 countries -- several repeatedly -- on 104 trips and logging more than 700,000 miles in a papacy that lasted more than 27 years. Blessed John Paul died at the age of 84 at the Vatican April 2, 2005, the vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday. As the first non-Italian pope in 455 years, John Paul became a spiritual protagonist in two global transitions: the fall of European communism, which began in his native Poland in 1989, and the passage to the third millennium of Christianity. The day of his canonization is Divine Mercy Sunday -- an observance Pope John Paul put on the church's universal calendar in 2000 on the Sunday after Easter. The Polish pope was a longtime enthusiast of the Divine Mercy devotions of St. Faustina . ...
ADAMS -- As a marathon vigil recedes into history, the business of running St. Stanislaus Kostka Mission Church remains. That responsibility looms large, particularly during these few weeks, among the most important days of the Roman Catholic calendar. "It’s our busiest time of the year, and it’s a special year, at that," parishioner Barbara Armata said. Next Sunday, the parish receives a new name in recognition of Pope John Paul II’s canonization on the same day at the Vatican. The parish, presently called Blessed John Paul the Great, will become St. John Paul II Parish on that day. Read the full story here:

I am reposting the Philpott children, because I realized I made a mistake and had the wrong date; and it happened in 2012, not 2011. 1 year ago today, a devastating fire ripped through the home of the Philpott family in Derby, England. Five of the children, John, Jack, Jade, Jesse, and Jayden, died at the scene, and the oldest, Duwayne, died two days later from his injuries. It was soon found that the fire was arson. The childrens' parents, *** and Mairead Philpott, as well as a friend of theirs, Paul Mosley, who helped set the fire, were each charged with six counts of manslaughter. *** was sentenced to life in prison in April 2013 and Mairead and Paul both got 17 years. God bless you Duwayne, John, Jade, Jack, Jesse, and Jayden. We remember you today.
They've been to *** and back, but a fulfilling life is within reach for the three Cleveland abduction survivors: just look at Elizabeth Smart and Jaycee Dugard.

Romans 12:1-2 King James Version (KJV) 12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  In this study we are going to see the various parts of our transformation in Christ.

A couple of early Church quotes for my Torah observant, sabbath-keeping friends. I have shared with you the more direct quotes that show the early Christians did not keep the sabbath like: "If, therefore, those who were brought up in the ancient order of things have come to the posession of a new hope, NO LONGER OBSERVING THE SABBATH, but living in the observance of THE LORD'S DAY (SUNDAY)…" Ignatius 107 AD " if it were not the same God who existed in the times of Enoch and all the rest, WHO NEITHER WERE CIRCUMCISED after the flesh, NOR OBSERVED SABBATHS, nor ANY OTHER RITES, seeing that Moses enjoined such observances...For if the was NO NEED of CIRCUMCISION before Abraham, or the OBSERVANCE OF SABBATHS, of feasr and sacrifices, before Moses; NO MORE NEED IS THERE OF THEM NOW." Justin Martyr 125 AD Here are three others that emphasize that we are under a New Law, given by Christ, and have no need of the obsolete Mosaic Law, just like Paul said. “If any one, however, advocating the cause of the . ...

“On behalf of the Board of Directors of The John Paul II Life Center in Austin Texas, it is our pleasure to thank you for the work that Sancta Familia is offering in the Omaha, Nebraska community. At this time in our great nation when “the family” is under attack from many directions it is critical to have a place of safe harbor for women in crisis or families looking for guidance as they seek to live their Catholic faith.

MY THIRD ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST by Emmanuel Senayon SamsonJude (09 February 2013) The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore be earnest, thoughtful men of prayer (1 Peter 5:7). I thank God for his grace over my life, the LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and  I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with  my song will I praise him. The lord promised to visit me on the 9th of February 2013 and He fulfilled it, because He is the ever faithful God (Psalms 33:11). On the 9th of February 2013 at around 1pm, I was on my bed about to sleep when I heard a voice saying "It is time, my son prepare yourself right now" and I just asked for the blood of Jesus to wash me clean and suddenly a deep sleep came over me and When  I opened my eyes, I found myself in the room, that I found myself in my first encounter with Jesus christ. And I saw Jesus christ, he came in and said: "My son, I want to show you many things today, for this is the last time I will visit you, you ...
God is the greatest Reality in the universe. And pastors swim in that sea with ever-replenished joy. I am the Lᴏʀᴅ, and there is no other, besides me there is no God. (Isaiah 45:5) Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:33–36) Jesus is the greatest Savior, Master, and Friend that ever was or will be. And pastors contemplate and commend him every day. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13) At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10–11) No longer do I call you servants, for the se ...

On retreat this weekend... stumbling over treasures in the field, such as St Louis de Montfort's amazing work on True Devotion, as well as Blessed John Paul's deep teaching on the Eucharist: "Dear friends, the Eucharist received with love and adored with fervour becomes a school of freedom and charity in order to fulfil the commandment to love. Jesus speaks to us in the wonderful language of the gift of self and of love so great as to give our own life for it. Is that an easy thing? You know very well that it is not! It is not easy to forget our self, but if we do, it draws us away from possessive and narcissistic love and opens us up to the joy of a love that is self-giving. This Eucharistic school of freedom and charity teaches us to overcome superficial emotions in order to be rooted firmly in what is true and good; it frees us from self-attachment in order to open ourselves to others. It teaches us to make the transition from an affective love to an effective love. For love is not merely a feeling; it ...
Blessed John Paul dedicated the Sunday after Easter to Divine Mercy. The drop of our sins matters little in the Ocean of God'smercy.
John Paul II (Latin: Ioannes Paulus PP. II, Italian: Giovanni Paolo II), sometimes called Blessed John Paul or John Paul the Great, born Karol Józef Wojtyła (Polish: [ˈkarɔl ˈjuzɛf vɔjˈtɨwa]; 18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005), reigned as Pope of the Catholic Church from 1978 until his death in 2005. He was the second-longest serving Pope in history and the first non-Italian since 1523. A very charismatic figure, John Paul II was acclaimed as one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century. He is credited with helping to end Communist rule in his native Poland and eventually all of Europe. John Paul II significantly improved the Catholic Church's relations with Judaism, Islam, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Anglican Communion. Though criticised by progressives for upholding the Church's teachings against artificial contraception and the ordination of women, and by traditionalists for his support of the Church's Second Vatican Council and its reform, he was also widely praised for his fir ...

Pope Benedict Asks the Faithful to "Cherish the Cherish the Rosary during the Year of Faith Before praying the Angelus on Octctober 7, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI recalled that the traditional annual "supplication", in which thousands of faithful around the world participate, is taking place today at the Italian shrine of Pompei, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. "As we too spiritually unite ourselves to that choral invocation, I would like to invite everyone to cherish the Rosary during the forthcoming Year of Faith. With the Rosary, in fact, we allow ourselves to be guided by Mary, the model of faith, in meditating upon the mysteries of Christ, and day after day we are helped to assimilate the Gospel so that it can shape our lives. Therefore, in the wake of my predecessors, and in particular Blessed John Paul II who ten years ago gave us his Apostolic Letter 'Rosarium Virginis Mariae', I invite people to pray the Rosary individually, in the family and in the community, placing themselves in the school of ...

The Rosary, “a compendium of the Gospel” 18. The only way to approach the contemplation of Christ's face is by listening in the Spirit to the Father's voice, since “no one knows the Son except the Father” (Mt 11:27). Blessed John Paul II
Praying to Christ with Mary 16. Jesus invited us to turn to God with insistence and the confidence that we will be heard: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Mt 7:7). Blessed John Paul II
It is worth pausing to consider this profound insight of Paul VI, in order to bring out certain aspects of the Rosary which show that it is really a form of Christocentric contemplation. Blessed John Paul II
To look upon the face of Christ, to recognize its mystery amid the daily events and the sufferings of his human life, and then to grasp the divine splendour definitively revealed in the Risen Lord, seated in glory at the right hand of the Father: this is the task of every follower of Christ and therefore the task of each one of us.

"It is frequently asserted that contraception, if made safe and available to all, is the most effective remedy against abortion. The Catholic Church is then accused of actually promoting abortion, because she obstinately continues to teach the moral unlawfulness of contraception... But despite their differences of nature and moral gravity, contraception and abortion are often closely connected, as fruits of the same tree. It is true that in many cases contraception and even abortion are practiced under the pressure of real-life difficulties, which nonetheless can never exonerate from striving to observe God's law fully. Still, in very many other instances such practices are rooted in a hedonistic mentality unwilling to accept responsibility in matters of sexuality, and they imply a self-centered concept of freedom, which regards procreation as an obstacle to personal fulfillment. The life which could result from a sexual encounter thus becomes an enemy to be avoided at all costs, and abortion becomes the ...

The tighter you hold your Rosary, the more you value the key to heaven, for the key is the cross on the end of it-all the mysteries are from and lead to the Cross; all the beads and deeds we pray and do are held by the cord of humility, and, like a million times zero, all our works fall to the floor, without this precious cord. The brightest minds in the Church are always the closest to the Mother of Light who whispers Her Wisdom, Her Son, infusing the mysteries of the Rosary into their souls...

Standing proud on the gridiron of life, we are grateful for the many highs and lows of our journey in the National Football League. As members of the New Orleans Saints family, we are owners, administrators, coaches and staff. We are players, trainers, reporters and fans. We are the Who Dat Nation and have vowed to be united through good times and bad. More than any other NFL community, we know both the joys and pains of loving our team. We have been to the mountaintop as World Champions and wallowed in the deep valley of a single win season. We have packed a million Who Dats on our streets for a Super Bowl parade and yet have worn bags of shame on our heads when times were rough. Whether flying like beautiful pelicans or stinging like pesky mosquitoes, the one thing we have always done is stick together as one Who Dat Nation Under God. Today, we cr ...
The Secret Life of John Paul II is a book recently translated into English written by Lino Zani a friend of the late Pope. The title promises more than it delivers, but it does present some nice behind the scenes look at Blessed Pope John Paul II. The title though sounds more like a tell-all book, but that might help more people read it. I remember once hearing a story from a Protestant women who is the sister of a rather famous anti-Catholic who saw “The Confessions of St. Patrick” and thought it would shine a negative light on a Catholic saint she knew little of. Instead it put her on a path to conversion to the Catholic Church. Lino Zani was born and raised in the Italian Alps and acted as a guide and ski instructor. And avid adventurer and mountain climber he relates his first contact with Blessed John Paul II when he comes to vacation in the secluded mountain lodge owned by his parents. This meeting led to a lifetime friendship for hime and his family with the Pope. It confirms many stories I hav ...

St. Corbinian’s Pack Bear Each year during his annual Lenten retreat, Blessed John Paul II would review his last Will and testament, making minor corrections and addendums to the text. After God finally called him home it was noticed that in his Will he specified that he should be laid in the bare earth, that his ashes may mingle with those of the Fisherman (St. Peter). The Fisherman’s ring that every Pontiff wears until death is of course broken after the death is verified, signifying that the See is now vacant. Towards the end of his life, Karol Wojtyla often asked the Lord during his annual retreat: “Nunc dimittis Dominae?” Quoting the Prophet Simeon after encountering the Child Jesus he exclaims, "Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace” (Lk 2:29). Pope Wojtyla asked his Lord in humble sincerity if it were not time for God to call him home, having served the Church as Universal Pastor for nearly 27 years? Nonetheless, he endured the Cross of the Papacy until April 2, 2005, ca ...

"Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being." - Blessed Pope John Paul II
" People today put more trust in witnesses than in teachers, in experience than in teaching, and in life and action than in theories. The witness of a Christian life is the first and irreplaceable form of mission: Christ, whose mission we continue, is the "witness" par excellence (Rev 1:5; 3:14) and the model of all Christian witness...The evangelical witness which the world finds most appealing is that of concern for people, and of charity toward the poor, the weak and those who suffer. The complete generosity underlying this attitude and these actions stands in marked contrast to human selfishness. " Blessed John-Paul II
My Holiness Father Pope Blessed John Paul II, pray for me and the audiences.

"One must throw truth across the path of lies. One must throw truth into the eye of a lie... One must catch hearts to kindle them, furrow hearts as with a plough, and root up the weeds... one must erect love; at the foundations, low in the ground, it will take root even in a wilderness, will build, uplift, and transform all things." - Blessed John Paul II, from his early play "Jeremiah"

Blessed John Paul the Great, pray for us always!!!
Good morning family and friends. This is the sixth day of our praying and fasting during the Fortnight for Freedom. Let us continue our reflection on building a new society. St. Augustine articulated his dream of “The City of God” within the ruins of a Roman Empire that was crumbling before his eyes. So the new society we will build is within the old society of secular progressive culture that is politically correct, but ant-intellectual, and inimical to the values of life from conception to natural death. This secular progressive culture is what Blessed John Paul the Great calls a “culture of death,” in bondage to what Benedict XVI calls the “dictatorship of relativism.” Our new society is built by both humanity and the Church together; “The Church, the sign in history of God's love for mankind and of the vocation of the whole human race to unity as children of the one Father, intends with this document on her social doctrine to propose to all men and women a humanism that is up to th ...

An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie, for an excuse is a lie guarded. – Blessed Pope John Paul II
1 Corinthians 2:14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Authentic love is not a vague sentiment or a blind passion. It is an inner attitude that involves the whole human person. It is looking at others, not to use them but to serve them. It is the ability to rejoice with those who are rejoicing and to suffer with those who are suffering. It is sharing what one possesses so that one may continue to be deprived of what he needs. Love, in a word, is the gift of self. (Blessed John Paul II)
My first ardent prayer to Blessed John Paul II - Updated
BLESSED FATHER'S DAY to all FATHERS! Blessed John Paul II, in a March 19, 1981 homily, asked, “Where, dear father, will you be able to draw the energy necessary to assume in various circumstances the right attitude that your children, even without knowing it, expect from you?” He strongly advised against smothering their spontaneity or abandoning them to a state of insecurity or loneliness. “St. Joseph is the answer to this,” he proclaimed.
