Pope’s Final Words

From Catholic News Agency:

“Pope John Paul II, before entering into the state of diminished consciousness, whispered to his personal secretary the eloquent phrase: “I am happy, be it yourselves as well.”

According to the Saturday issue of the Italian daily Il Secolo XIX, the Pope pronounced these moving words to Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz, his personal secretary and right hand from his days as Archbishop of Krakow (Poland.)

The message was mainly addressed to the priests and religious who have been serving the Pontiff in the last months.

Nevertheless, the phrase, according to the Italian daily, has become a “testament” for all the faithful around the world.”

Saint John Paul the Great

It is beyond reason what this pope accomplished in his pontificate. I told Amy I believe he will be canonized by his successor within five years. Like Bl. Mother Teresa God has blessed us with two great witnesses of his power.

I also predict many will be converted or return to the faith because of his entry into Heaven. All as Evening Prayer I begins the Feast of Mercy.

Jesus we trust in you and ask the John Paul to intercede for us that your church may be a light to the world in these days of mourning and thanksgiving!
