Today is the first liturgical memorial of Bl. John Paul II. His memorial is celebrated in the diocese of Rome and Poland on Oct. 22nd, the anniversary of his inauguration as the 264th successor to St. Peter. I went to St. Peter's today to make a visit to his tomb. Of course there were scores of people.
Today is also a special day for me. I was baptized at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Tawas City 23 years ago.
Bl. John Paul II...Pray for us.
