        Jan Paweł II
 
Grant that your servant John Paul,
our Pope, whom you made vicar of Peter
and shepherd of your Church,
may rejoice for ever in the vision of your glory, for he was a faithful steward here on earth of the mysteries of your forgiveness and grace.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
 

Z POKORĄ

Z pokorą przyjąłem Twoją wolę Panie.
Choć chce się krzyczeć - cisza pozostanie.

Tęsknota i smutek, pytanie : dlaczego?
Dlaczego zabrałeś nam Ojca Świętego?

Pustka w sercu, łzy na twarzy.
By czas cofnąć - wszystkim się marzy.

Wołaliśmy za Nim, by został wraz z nami,
Ale Go zabrałeś - zostaliśmy sami !

Wszystko teraz inne i Polska nie taka !
Nie ma razem z nami Papieża - Polaka !

Papieża, co pokazał czym życie, cierpienie,
Czym jest dla człowieka na Ziemi istnienie !

W podróż długą wyruszył - nikt Go nie zatrzyma,
Ale wierzę, że spotkam Papieża - Pielgrzyma !

Wierzę, że Papież jest już z Tobą w Niebie.
Zabrałeś Go ludziom, by mieć Go dla siebie.

Pewnie pobiegł czym prędzej - tak chciał nieustannie,
By się wnet pokłonić Przenajświętszej Pannie !

Choć Go z nami nie ma - jest, gdzie Wszyscy Święci,
Pozostanie na zawsze - w sercach i w pamięci !

Wątpliwości nie mam cienia,
Że życie się nie kończy, a tylko się zmienia

I mam nadzieję, i mocno w to wierzę,
Że kiedyś się spotkam z Kochanym Papieżem !

(Grzegorz Cichoszewski)

Pożegnanie Papieża na mszy , piatek 8 kwietnia 20:00.

Karol Józef Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920, in Wadowice, Poland. The youngest child of a schoolteacher and a retired army officer, he was an active young man, an athlete and an outdoorsman whose passions were poetry, philosophy, and the theater. Much of his advanced education was obtained underground after the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939. He was ordained a priest in 1946, a bishop in 1958, was appointed archbishop of Kraków in 1964, and elevated to the College of cardinals in 1967, at forty-seven its youngest member. When Cardinal Wojtyla was elected the 264th successor of Peter in 1978, he became the youngest pope since Pius IX a hundred years before, the first Polish pope, and the first non-Italian pontiff since Adrian IV in the sixteenth century. John Paul II circled the globe, logging over a million miles and visiting every continent except Antarctica. He opened dialogues with Protestant denominations; visited Auschwitz, a Jewish synagogue, and a Muslim mosque; and made pilgrimages to Orthodox countries where no pope had ever set foot before. His legacy to the Church includes more than a dozen encyclicals, as well as scores of apostolic letters, constitutions, and exhortations. He beatified and canonized more than a thousand men and women from all walks of life and greeted hundreds of millions of the faithful through his travels and papal audiences. He was tireless in his work for the poor and powerless, speaking out against war, economic injustice, political oppression, and what he called the industrialized world’s “culture of death.” Pope John Paul II’s ultimate homily was probably his own life—a life characterized by a charismatic personality, heartfelt prayer, moral vision, global evangelism, tireless advocacy for human dignity and political and religious freedom, and unshakable faith.
