Let us pray for him today for his Beatification process so that we may know that he is in Heaven with our heavenly Father.
Let us also take a moment to reflect on his life's work and perhaps receive a chance to browse through the Vatican's website on him filled with his many homilies, encyclicals, and other works.UPDATE:
Overcoming evil with weapons of love becomes the way in which each person can contribute to the peace of all. Christians and believers of different religions are called to walk this path, together with those who accept the universal moral law.
- Homily from the Solemnity of Mary; January 1, 2005
