O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the Church
with St. 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.
Trusting fully in Your infinite mercy,
and in the maternal intercession of Mary,
he has given us a living example of Jesus the Good Shepherd,
and has shown us that holiness
is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life
and is the way of achieving eternal communion with You.
