On 1 May 2011, John Paul II will be beatified in Rome! John Paul II served as Pope from 1978 until his death in 2005. He visited more nations and gave audiences to more pilgrims than any previous Pope, and will forever be remembered for his courageous efforts to build bridges between nations and religions around the world.
EDIT: update 11 June 2011.
When John Paul II got beatified , I prayed to him that a blocked vein in my throat would get better. Actually it’s called a coroted artery and it was 50% blocked. My GP asked me to have another ultra sound xray to see if it had gotten worse and when I went to see him after I had my ultra sound , he told me that my there was absolutely nothing wrong with my coroted artery and that it was not blocked at all. My GP said he had no explanation for the cure and I said nothing and immediately thanked God and Blessed JPII for his help.
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
