In a simple but heartfelt prayer, Catholics can now pray to develop the virtues that Pope St. John XXII exhibited in life, and ask for his intercession for God to grant us the grace to serve others as he did. The convenient 100 pack makes these ideal for handing out to friends and family, or for donating to your local parish.
The reverse of the card includes sainthood information as well as his birthday and death date. The reverse reads: "Pope John XXIII was inspired that the Catholic Church needed 'updating'. He called the Second Vatican Council and set the Church to a process he described with the Italian term 'Aggiornamento' or bringing up to date. 'I want to open up the windows of the Church so that we can see out and the people can see in.'
Divine Spirit, renew your wonders in our time, as though for a new Pentecost, and grant that the holy church, preserving unanimous and continuous prayer, together with Mary the Mother of Jesus, and also under the guidance of St. Peter, may increase the reign of the Divine Savior, the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace. Amen."
