Saint John Paul II's Prophetic Warning to the US quovadis
Saint John Paul II credited Our Lady of Guadalupe as his guide. He said, “Ever since I went on pilgrimage for the first time to the splendid Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe on January 29, 1979, she has guided my steps in these almost twenty five years of service as Bishop of Rome and universal pastor of the Church. I wish to invoke her, the sure way to encounter Christ, and who was the first evangelizer of America, as the ‘Star of Evangelization, ’ entrusting to her the ecclesial work of all her sons and daughters of America. ” Let us not forget Saint John Paul the second’s warning to America. I led a procession carrying the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe many miles to his World Youth Day Mass at Cherry Creek State Park in Denver, Colorado in 1993. He preached during his homily: Death battles against Life: a "culture of death" seeks to impose itself on our desire to live, and live to the full. In our own century, as at no other time in history, the "culture of death" has assumed a social and institutional form of legality to justify the most horrible crimes against humanity: genocide, "final solutions", "ethnic cleansings", and the massive "taking of lives of human beings even before they are born, or before they reach the natural point of death. " Woe to you if you do not succeed in defending life; in order to create a civilization of true justice and love. Pope John Paul II was offering a prophetic warning to our nation. We must defend life and create a true civilization of justice, peace and love.
