Blessed Pope John Paul II, Pray for Us.
Sunday, May 1, 2011
On this special day of the beatification of Pope John Paul II, our family honored the man born as Karol Józef Wojtyła in Wadowice, Poland by celebrating his Polish heritage with a Polish luncheon feast. We lit our Pope John Paul II candle and said a prayer for his blessing on our family. Our feast of potato pancakes, potato pierogis and kielbasa sausage and eggs was delicious. We watched the beatification mass of this gentle, loving and amazing man. In honor of Pope John Paul II's love for the Divine Mercy Devotion, we will listen to and pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet in song on our way to the park to enjoy this lovely day as a family.
