Feast Day of Blessed Pope John Paul II

Today is the Feast day of our late great Pope who is already named a Blessed and one approved miracle away from being declared a Saint.  Blessed JPII was a man of heroic virtue and sanctity who led the Church with great courage and relentless witness of serving and living a life of holiness.  Blessed Pope John Paul II was a remarkable man who led the Church into the "New Springtime" calling for the New Evangelization and witnessing to it through pastoral visits around the world and even being credited for defeating communist regimes.  Might we seek his intercession with fervor this day!  Click here for a link with more details of his life from the Holy See press office.
