    There is no doubt Pope John Paul II to become a saint, in his time many countries converted from communist to democratic. He was a true Christian in words and in deeds. I had only one wish and I know he will not ignore it, for my children, for my family........John Paul II... Pray for us!

    i was blessed by Pope John Paul II when we met Him in 1995 during 10th World Youth day.I am so proud of being a Catholic since then.All of us in the group did not explain whats happening that moment in ourself.We feel crying and our tears dropped we dont know.But one thing is very clear, the Lord sends us a true friend,a true leader,a real son of Heavenly father.
    I also promised that moment to be active in Catholic activities and deepen my spirituality through service of the MSK of the Prelature of infanta...... a Eucharistic/Lay Minister.

    Pope John Paul II has been an inspiration to the life of the present and future generations. He was a holy man. There is no doubt he has joined the company of saints. I can't wait to witness this beatification! "Pope St. John Paul II.....pray for us!"
