The Vatican announced today that the beloved Pope John Paul II (+2005), will be beatified May 1, after Pope Benedict XVI‘s approval of the needed miracle attributed to his intercession involving a Polish nun miraculously recovering from Parkinson’s disease.1


A Friend of Medjugorje wrote in 1997:
 

The visionary Marija asked Our Lady about the newly elected Pope (John Paul). She revealed to Marija that he was Her Pope, and that it was very difficult for him to have been elected. This is very amazing when one considers that after Pope Paul VI died, Pope John Paul I was elected and within 30 days he died!… and then Pope John Paul II was elected!

For this time, we had a man in the flesh elected to spiritually rule all Christians and people of the world, anointed and, by divine intervention, saved to assist the Queen of Heaven during the ushering in of a new time. Our Lady’s words to the world confirms this clearly, when Pope John Paul II was to visit Zagreb, speaking of the Pope:


August 25, 1994

“…Pray, little children, for the health of my most beloved son, who suffers and whom I have chosen for these times…” 2


To the Medjugorje believers, there was no doubt about Pope John Paul’s holiness and sainthood. While it is widely known that Pope John Paul II voiced his approval and support for Medjugorje in many public forums, Our Lady of Medjugorje Herself has said the following:
 


November 8, 1981

Our Lady appears kissing and lovingly embracing a picture of John Paul II.

"He is your father, the spiritual father of all. It is necessary to pray for him."
 


And on May 13, 1982 Our Lady of Medjugorje said:
 

Concerning the assassination attempt on the life of John Paul II:

"His enemies have wanted to kill him, but I protected him."
 


All of the visionaries of Medjugorje have had the opportunity to meet Pope John Paul II with the exception of Ivan. Ivan expressed in a talk in 2005 of his disappointment in not being able to see the Pope before his death. However, Medjugorje visionary Ivan had the following apparition on April 2, 2005:
 

At Ivan’s apparition tonight, Ivan was recommending intentions to Our Lady when Pope John Paul II appeared on Her right. He was smiling, young, and very happy. All in white with a long gold cape. Our Lady turned, smiling, to look at the Pope and he was looking at Our Lady, smiling. Our Lady then said to Ivan:

"This is my son; he is with me."
 


A Friend of Medjugorje has always said that with Our Lady and Her Medjugorje messages, one can know more about the events of the world than through the world’s news outlets. The above message to Ivan is a beautiful example, confirming that Our Lady in Medjugorje revealed Pope John Paul’s place in Heaven, 5 years before it is publicly declared.

Indeed we are blessed to have had such a Pope as John Paul 11! Such an inspiration and such a witness of God's love, forgiveness and a true son of Mary, whom he loved so much "Totus tuus" - an invitation to all of us, his flock, to have the same love and devotion to our Heavenly Mother. Thank you, Blessed John Paul 11, for the great comfort you bring us in these troubled times. Help us in our walk of faith. Intercede for us, our families, our countries and our loved ones. Grateful thanks.

I truly confirm John Paul II's holiness. I am not a Catholic but we once had spiritual contact. He came to me in a dream exactly a week before his passing. His driver drove him pass me and his driver got out to ask me a way to somewhere. When I got up, I learned about him being in hospital; I then interpreted my dream that less than a week, he would pass away. On saturday night, I dreamt that he had been well. When I got up, I found he's gone. He and I are close, and he has attained holiness.

We should all celebrate as we are living in tumultous times but our heavenly mother, Our Lady is reassuring us that she is with us till the end of time and she has sent our dear Pope John Paul to be a role model for us all. Thank you for your blessings dear heavenly mother.

In the last year I have come here often. It is wonderful that Ivan saw him it helps to strenghten my faith. For many years I strayed away and am now finding my way.I go to church and pray. I believe I had one of my most desperate prayers answered. I am a converter back to my Catholic upbringing. It is hard for me to understand and remember everything. I am praying that someone come in to my life that can help teach me. I ask the beloved pope, Mary and others to Pray for my journey home to Jesus.

Oh thank you so much...I have a large picture of Pope John Paul 2 in my 'Sanctuary' & I feel as if he is communicating with me all the time - he is dressed in white, seated on a chair with his hands joined in pensive or meditative-like poise - the picture is illuminated & very precious to me. What a great blessing & gift his Beautification will be to the world in those end times! God bless, Connie gunning.

I am so confort and bless by this message.Because in Mexico there's a priest talking so bad about the Sainthood of our beloved POPE JOHN PAUL II,saying that he did not deserve it.And by doing that in television making so many people confuse,especially the ones with a weak faith.SO I'M very happy of message of Evan:WHAT A BLESSING?can you EVAN wish that for me too.Because while he was visiting HAITI i was 12 and i wasn't elected for the trip.But now i think i would a very special blessing.THANKS

We are blessed beyond measure to have had John Paul II with us so many years on earth, guiding us towards the New Evangilization with his great teachings and writings. We will forever have these wonderful writings for future generations to continue to learn from. We've hardly begun to tap into the wisdom contained in them.Now, he will, as St. Therese, continue to do good on earth from His heavenly home. Wow to have been in the presence of a Saint. We still love you Papa! John Paul II pray for us

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ and to the Lady of Medjugorje for letting us know the beatification of Her beloved son John Paul ll, because I personally witness him when he came to Cebu last 1981, when told us to raise our rosary beads for his blessing and I personally raise mine. He is really anointed son of God. He spoke with wisdom that penetrate to deepest heart of men.John Paul please help us pray for greater conversion of our bro and sis who are still in darkness.

I recently read in a book that John Paul II's secretary said that Jonh Paul II once told him that when he prayed that he imagined himself as a pilgrim in Medjugorje;so I am not surprised that he got to meet all of the visionaries, including Ivan by way of Our Lady. I look forward to Pope Benedict's visit to Croatia in October to see what Our Lady has planned for this pope.

It is amazing to hear about wonderful stories of a holy man who lived a holy life and gave his life as a message for us. I always admire at the life of Pope John Paul II. I met him when he visited India. I have his message in my diary. The picture Our Lady embracing Pope is very encouraging and faith provoking. It shows how much Our Blessed Mother loved Pope. Same way, our Blessed Mother loves us. We need to believe and trust the presence of Our Blessed Mother in our life. Blessed Pope John Paul, teach to love our how to love Mother Mary. Mary our mother, love us and reveal yourself to us.

It's good to hear the voice, the only voice valid in this world, the voice of LOVE. We are all on the search for this Voice I belief. It will make us free to respond to LOVE for LOVE for ALL people. John Paul II is such person on the site of Our Lady. Love br. Herbert

As I read what is being written here and of the messages of our Blessed Virgin Mary ... It comes to my mind of another source that Pope John Paul II would be the most favored one of Our Lady! Of all the popes past, and to come! My reading source was independent and separate from this site. The coincidence is astonishing to me. The tie-in is incredible! I write to this feedback as a witness of what I have read from a book in the 1980's or 1990's that now compares to what is happening in this time

I have a Autistic Son. When he was young, we were asked to make small crosses for a retreat in the Green Bay Diocese. We made 300 that time, and one of the priests met John Paul during a youth conference. John Paul blessed one of those crosses. To us that was a honor to have that done.

It's wonderful to catch up again with the Medugorje News especially on the St Hood of Paul John Paul 11. We see our Lady's love for humanity in many ways in our Country especially people who are not of Catolic origion are enjoying saying the Rosary and speaking up for Mother Mary. Bage

Thank-you Lord God almighty for all your gifts. Thank-you for allowing our mother to be with us, you are truly blessing our world. Pope John Paul please continue to pray for us along with the holy family especially for abundant conversions. Increase our faith, give us courage, and help us to persevere through all our trials. We love you and trust in your mercy.

Praise be to Jesus & Mary! I have a particular devotion to John Paul 11. I was fortunate to attend a Wednesday audience in St Peter's square in 1999. The Holy Father sneezed (into the microphone) and I (along with other Australian pilgrims) said "Bless you, Holy Father!) He smiled & said "gratias".) It was a beautiful moment. I have always felt his holiness as a solid reality. I have a picture of John Paul 11 in our bedroom and pray to him regularly.

Pope John Paul II has always been protected. Watch the movie on Pope John Paul and look at his life during WWII and how he never was arrested for the work he did. Amazing! We had a baby (not planned) in 2002 and we named him JohnPaul (first name). I remember the nurse saying "he has alot of people to live up to." We so love Pope John Paul and we are glad to hear of his beatification.

We are living in the most incredible time in history. That Our Lady would show us a piece of Heaven is mind boggeling, what an awsome sight to behold. We all knew he was Our Lady's favorite son when he was still among us, so why would he not become a saint in heaven, Thank you so much for the sacrifices you are all making to bring us closer to Jesus and Mary and ultimately to God our Father. Keep up the great job and God bless you all.

What a beautiful example of how motherly Mary's love is! Ivan didn't get to see the great John Paul II before his death, so Our Lady brought him for Ivan. I am a daughter of Mary; I have loved her since I was a little girl, and though not always faithful; have been called back into the church and love and obedience to her. And I pray also to the beloved "Lolek" for his help and guidance.

I was delighted to read this wonderful GOOD NEWS this morning. There is so liottle good news around these days will all the terrible disasters in the world and threats of wars. Our Lady of course foretold these things but isn't it lovely to know that our dear Pope John Paul 2 is being raised to official sainthood. May he be an example to all of us and a help in our journey towards eternity. Thanks for your newsletters They gladden my heart and help keep me focussed. Rosemary
