It’s possible we *might* be a little partial to this polish saint.
We did, after all, name a kid after him.
Happy feast day St. John Paul II!
In two weeks, our sixth grade class will participate in the saint project at school. They research a saint, present their findings and – the best part – is they dress up as said saint and conduct a parade at Mass. Favorite. One. Of. The. Year. John Paul is sporting a white cassock, a zucchetto and the sah-weetest red velvet shoes with gold trim. Etsy. It’s your new BFF.
I’ve written many times about the Pope, as an office and as a person. We had the privilege of meeting JP2 and being in many papal audiences with him. There is nothing like it. And, yes, everytime we were in his presence you could most definitely feel the Holy Spirit. Our world is blessed to have him as an intecessor for our prayers.
