JP2 Feast Day Approved for American Church

Blessed John Paul II has a new feast day here in America.

The Congregation of Divine Worship has approved the celebration, setting the feast day for Oct 22. It will be observed as an optional memorial in the United States. Oct 22 was chosen because that is the day he was inaugurated as Pope in 1978.

Pope John Paul II is one of my heroes. I’ve read many of his encyclicals and been inspired by all of them. His writings on women are especially dear to me. I think that when he consecrated Russia to Our Lady, he set the stage for what no one ever thought you happen: The non-violent dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Blessed John Paul II, pray for us.
