In honor of the saint's feast day tomorrow, take the time to reflect on his wise words.

Tomorrow is the feast of the late pope St. John Paul II. The occasion gives us a moment to say a prayer to the much-loved pontiff, and to consider some of his many reflections on everyday life.

Perhaps one of the reasons Pope John Paul II was so popular was his ability to grasp some of the struggles and beauties we encounter in our lives. The prolific writer was able to capture so eloquently how we can lean on our faith in these situations, and grow closer to God.

So take a moment today to consider just some of his many reflections, and make a concerted effort to honor the former pope by living a faith-filled life.
