An Opportunity for the JPII Generation to Say “Thank You”

Josh gave me the privilege of posting this wonderful initiative by the Knights of Columbus.

As someone who was born eight years into his pontificate, I clearly owe JP2 a great debt of gratitude – I hope to submit a letter:

Knights of Columbus to bring letters in gratitude for Pope John Paul II to
                            May 1 beatification

With the beatification of John Paul II scheduled for May 1, is inviting the young people who grew up with him as
pope – the members of the “JPII Generation” – to say “thank you” to the
late Holy Father.

From now until April 27, Headline Bistro, a popular news website for
Catholics – and an initiative of the Knights of Columbus – is collecting
written submissions from Catholic young adults who are grateful for the
life and legacy of Pope John Paul II. The letters will be brought to the
beatification by Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus,
who will be in attendance at the ceremonies.

The expressions of thanks can be submitted through
and must be 500 words or less. Submissions accepted can be viewed at
