“Go to the Madonna. Love her! Always say the Rosary. Say it well. Say it as often as you can! Be souls of prayer. Never tire of praying, it is what is essential. Prayer shakes the Heart of God, it obtains necessary graces!” -St. Padre Pio

The Power of Forgiveness St. John Paul II, once the spiritual…

The Power of Forgiveness
St. John Paul II, once the spiritual leader of hundreds of millions Roman Catholics around the world, was invested in 1978 as the first Polish pope and the first non-Italian pope in 456 years. Fluent in seven modern languages and Latin, he was known as an avid traveler who had little fear of going out in public. Four days after being shot, he offered forgiveness to his would-be assassin from his hospital bed. The pontiff spent three weeks in the hospital before being released fully recovered from his wounds.
In the late 1990s, Pope John Paul II expressed his hope that the Italian government would pardon Mehmet in 2000. The pontiff had made 2000 a holy “Jubilee” year, of which forgiveness was to be a cornerstone. On May 13, 2000, the 19th anniversary of the attempt on his life, the pope visited Fatima, Portugal. The same day, the Third Secret of Fatima was announced by Vatican Secretary of State Angelo Sodano. Sodano described the secret as a “prophetic vision” in which “a bishop clothed in white…falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a burst of gunfire.” The Vatican interpreted this as a prediction of the attempt on John Paul II’s life. Mehmet Ali Agca, who had guessed the alleged Fatima-assassination connection in 1985, was pardoned by Italian President Carolo Ciampi on June 14, 2000. Extradited to Turkey, he began serving the eight years remaining on the sentence for his 1979 murder of the Turkish newspaper editor.
Pope St. John Paul II is remembered for his successful efforts to end communism and he credits Our Blessed Mother for saving his life the day he was shot.
St. John Paul II, pray for us!

Happy Feast Day of my Confirmation Saint!!! St. John Paul II 😄🙏🇻🇦
An enthusiastic skier and outdoorsman in his native Poland, Pope John Paul II “could not resist the siren call of the mountains outside Rome, and on at least 100 occasions slipped away for some incognito schussing or mountaineering — sometimes even fooling the Swiss Guards who were sworn to protect him,”
In a 2007 memoir, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz — the late pope’s longtime personal secretary — recounted John Paul II’s reaction the first time they successfully evaded the Swiss Guards: A joyful “We did it!”

PARENTING TIP:
“Keeping God’s commandments include practicing virtue.

You should want your children to acquire as many Christian habits as possible even before reaching the age of reason.

This makes the practice of virtue so much easier when its foundations are later understood.”
