5th Sunday of Lent

"Judgment of this world"

     Your Son said once:  "Whoever keeps the commandments and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven".
     Your servant Karol Wojtyła, fulfilled it through various stages of his life.
     We are discovering the mystery of his greatness - that his life revolved around two commandments: to love God and to love one's neighbor.  He introduced them into his life by all means, with all his might and with a great joy.  As if he found the treasure in the field.  As if he came across the most beautiful pearl.
     And that's the way he teaches us how to reach your greatness.
