Oh Blessed Trinity, We thank You for having graced the Church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of Your Fatherly care, the glory of the Cross of Christ, and the splendor of the Holy Spirit to shine through him.
Trusting fully in Your infinite mercy and the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd, and has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and the way of achieving eternal communion with You.
Grant us by his intercession, and according to Your Will, the graces we implore, hoping that he will soon be numbered among Your saints. Amen.

Prayer on back: Teen Creed
The Teen Creed
Dont let your parents down;
They brought you up.
Be humble enough to obey;
You may give orders someday.
Choose companions with care;
You become what they are.
Guard your thoughts;
What you think, you are.
Choose only a date,
Who would make a good mate.
Be master of your habits,
Or they will master you.
Dont be a show off when you drive;
Drive with safety and arrive.
Dont let the crowd pressure you:
Stand for something7mdash;
Or youll fall for anything. ...Author Unknown
