Join Us for a Saint John Paul II Novena

Join us in praying a Saint John Paul II Novena in preparation for his feast day on October 22. 

We are so excited to begin a Novena for Saint John Paul II's feast day this year. Below are each day's prayers. Krystyna and I will be finding time each day to pray the daily pray and we will post either a picture or video of us doing that as a reminder for everyone to say their daily prayer. 

Saint John Paul II, pray for us! 

We are following Catholic Novena App's Saint John Paul II Novena. 

Day 1 - Thursday, October 14

Intro Prayer

O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the Church with Saint John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of love to shine through him.

Daily Prayer

Dear St. John Paul II, you told us: The future starts today, not tomorrow. So, as we start our nine days with you, thank you for reminding me that with God’s Help, I can start again, but I need to start now, not at some point in the future.

Your words are encouraging and motivating to me. Please be with me as I progress through these nine days in prayer with you.

Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure. Dear St. John Paul, just like St. Paul who described his journey as a race, you tell me that life with Jesus is a wonderful adventure.

Anything done for another is done for oneself. Dear John Paul, you tell us, just as Christ did, the Golden Rule. How simple it is to hear, yet so difficult, at times, to do. Be with me and help me see God in my neighbor, and in those I find unbearable.

People are made for happiness. Rightly, then, you thirst for happiness. Christ has the answer to this desire of yours. But He asks you to trust Him. True joy is a victory , something which cannot be obtained without a long and difficult struggle. Christ holds the secret of this victory.”
