Preparing for the Beatification

Here is a series of paintings of our soon to be Blessed John Paul II. His beatification will take place in Rome on May 1st, the Feast of the Divine Mercy, of which John Paul II was a strong promoter. These paintings were an exhibit in San Ruffino's in Assisi. I included the title of each painting in the caption. My favorites are Prayer, Mercy, Meditation, and God's Support. Pray for us, Papa!
God's Support
Mercy

For The Sake Of His Sorrowful Passion

A few images from my Rome pilgrimage.

For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
