Prayer of Pope John Paul II

Blessed John Paul II 
Feast  October 22
"Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!"

Pray, O Mother, for all of us. 
Pray for humanity who suffers poverty and injustice, 
violence and hatred, terror and war. 
Help us to contemplate with the rosary 
the mysteries of Him who "is our peace", 
so that we will all feel involved 
in a persevering dedication of service to peace. 
Look with special attention 
upon the land in which you gave birth to Jesus, 
a land that you loved together with Him, 
and that is still so sorely tried today. 
Pray for us, Mother of hope! 
"Give us days of peace, watch over our way. 
Let us see your Son as we rejoice in heaven". Amen!

Blessed John Paul II said this prayer at the Piazza di Spagna on December 8 2002 on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary.  The entirety of his prayers offered that day can be found on the vatican website
