Repositio of the Tomb of Blessed John Paul II

This was to be a private event, Monday night at 7:30pm, but the word spread and there ended up being more than 100 people in attendance. Here is the ritual book. The hymn was actually sung later following the litany saints.



And the moving of the body occurred on Friday morning:



The Collect of John Paul II:

O God, who are rich in mercy,
and who willed that the Blessed John Paul II
should preside as Pope over your universal Church,
grant, we pray, that instructed by his teaching,
we may open our hearts to the saving grace of Christ,
the sole redeemer of mankind.
Who lives and reigns....
