Pope Francis and the world remembered Saint Pope JPII yesterday on anniversary of his birth

Francis Marks St. John Paul II’s Birthday Today
Francis Also Offers Ukrainian Greetings, Prays Future Generations Have Peace
During his weekly General Audience this morning in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis recalled that today marks the birthday of St. Pope John Paul II.
“Today, the day of the birth of Saint John Paul II, I cordially greet all the Polish pilgrims present,” Francis said in his remarks.
“I join myself spiritually to the President of the Republic of Poland, with the soldiers and participants in the Mass at the Polish cemetery at Monte Cassino in memory of the fallen, as well as to those who are gathered in Toruń for the consecration of the Shrine of Our Lady, Star of the New Evangelization and of St. John Paul II.”
Pope Francis prayed that these events for the Polish people are an invitation to pray for peace, for the Church in Poland, and for the prosperity of their country.
“Praised be Jesus Christ,” he concluded.
