Here is a lovely prayer I found on EWTN:

O Holy Trinity, we thank you for having given to the Church Pope John Paul II, and for having made him shine with your fatherly tenderness, the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of love

He, trusting completely in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, has shown himself in the likeness of Jesus the Good Shepherd and has pointed out to us holiness as the path to reach eternal communion with You.

Grant us, through his intercession, according to your will, the grace that we implore, in the hope that he will soon be numbered among your saints.

Saint John Paul II, pray for us!

Mary: Co-Redemptrix

Having suffered for the Church, Mary deserved to become the Mother of all the disciples of her Son, the Mother of their unity…In fact Mary’s role as Co-Redemptrix did not cease with the glorification of her Son.” –Pope John Paul II

Offering: Hidden sacrifices in honor of the wounds of Christ and Mary’s participation in His suffering.
