Thank-you Fr. Kaz for your gracious tour of the Altar of Divine Mercy and John Paul's beautiful Cove. I still miss His appearances here in this world, but I also know how His remarkable love for the Blessed Mother has brought such true happiness on their meeting in Her Heavenly home and how many have been helped since His earthly departure. God Bless you for sharing this with us days before His indoctrination to Sainthood. Peace

God bless you, Fr. Kaz for sharing your heartfelt comments with us. The day that John Paul was elected, I was working in Springfield, MA. for an Insurance Co. I called my Mom, "We have a Polish Pope!" How we rejoiced. I went on to Nursing School. I carry the massage of Divine Mercy wherever I go. I have, personally been a witness to multiple miracles through this message. Now, I have the great honor to volunteer at the Shrine in Medical Hospitality! Little did I realize, all those years ago the great graces that I would be blessed with because of my little sacrifice! The awesome events that are a regular occurrence at this Holy Shrine have just brought me closer to Jesus and His Love and Mercy. I look forward every year to our ministry to those who come from far and near to experience those wondrous blessings! Thank you, all the Marians and all the volunteers that make these days possible for us! See you soon, my precious friends of Divine Mercy!

Being 2nd generation Polish American, I am firmily commected to Pope John Paul II and Divine Mercy. I am so happy that I lived long enough to see a Polish Pope and have him become a Saint. God bless all of us for his kind works.

I am praying to St John Paul for a miracle
I have faith in him that he will intercede for me
He is the only saint I had the fortune of seeing in flesh
Pray for me St John Paul
