Share the wisdom of "The Pope of the Family" and seek the intercession of Pope Saint John Paul II for your family! The Pope Saint John Paul II Prayer Pillowcase can help you do both.
What do you remember most about the man who graced the cover of Time Magazine as “Man of the Year” in 1994? Is it the way he dedicated his life, his papacy and the world to our Blessed Mother, using the beautiful motto Totus Tuus -Totally Yours? Maybe it’s for his important and inspiring writings that give us hope and guide us towards holiness. If you’re a history buff you know about his full and fascinating growing-up years (if you don’t know, you want to!). And if you’re a young adult or a parent you remember that the man who sat on The Chair of Peter for almost 27 years cared intensely about the youth of the world; so much so that he initiated World Youth Days!
Our contemplative composition portrays Karol Wojtyla the way most of us remember him best: as our loving and beloved Pope John Paul the Great (complete with his unique papal staff and hand raised in blessing!). The pastoral background symbolizes this saint’s life-long love of the outdoors. Beneath the words Pope Saint John Paul II is the phrase “Be Not Afraid.” These are the words that Pope John Paul II shared again and again to encourage us along our journeys in Christ’s footsteps. The finishing detail is below that, a small Marian emblem in witness to this saint’s great devotion to the Blessed Mother.
While he was on earth, the man behind this saint enriched the lives of millions around the world - both Catholic and non-Catholic. And now he is carrying on his mission as our loving advocate in Heaven! So when we feel our faith threatened by secular society, or see our children struggling to live their faith with courage and enthusiasm, we can pray for Pope Saint John Paul II’s intercession in confidence, knowing he understands the daily struggles we all face in today’s world.
Share our Pope Saint John Paul II Prayer Pillowcase wth your loved ones to open the doors to the uplifting and consoling companionship of Saint John Paul II.
