The Feast of St. John Paul The Great!



What can we possible say about today's Feast Day?

Those who have been following us since the beginning are well aware of the fact that we consider Pope St. John Paul II to be "The Original Catholic Hipster," and we ask for his intercession as we try our best to imitate the amazing path to holiness he showed all of us.

And the legacy that he left for us "younger" folks is just staggering: TOB, Love & Responsibility, Mulieris Dignitatem, the Letter to Families, Evangelium Vitae, and on and on and on.

JP2's message is a message the world so deeply needs to hear, and it's up to all of us to make that happen.

I've often wondered if my love of Karol Wojtyla is only because he was the Pope from my birth until after I graduated college, or if it was just a flat out living Saint...

Thank God I'm Catholic, and I get to rock the both/and.

John Paul, we look to you today and ask for your prayers for all of us down here on Earth. May we live a life inspired by you, and work to understand the amazing things you taught us while you were here with us.

St. Pope John Paul The Great, pray for us!
