Tuesday April 2, 2014, 9th Anniversary of the Death of John Paul II


Most Holy Father,

I am writing to you on this, the 9th anniversary of John Paul II, in response to your invitation and encouragement as stated in your Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

I have read your Exhortation a number of times and studied it both as a personal examination of conscience but also in order to show how the establishment of Perpetual Eucharist Adoration with “permanent exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. . . . in all parishes and Christian communities throughout the world”, as John Paul II hoped for, can become the key to the successful implementation of Evangelii Gaudium throughout the world. Attached to this letter is my study of your Exhortation trying to make my case.

Today is significant for me personally because exactly nine years ago, upon hearing of the death of John Paul II, I prayed to him most fervently. I introduced myself to him and told him all about my work promoting and supporting Eucharistic Adoration and I asked for his help from heaven. I have been praying to him most every day for the past nine years.

I want so much for your desires expressed in the Exhortation to become reality.  I know that if you resurrect Pope John Paul II’s call for Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, which I believe has been in decline for some time, the Catholic world will jump into action and Adoration Chapels will become the place of refuge you call for, the source of peace and encouragement you say is needed, and the motivation for everyone to become joyful missionaries of the Gospel.

I expect this letter to reach the Vatican on April 11th the feast of St Stanislaw patron saint of Poland.  I pray to him and to John Paul II that this letter and document reach you.  I also pray to another patron saint of mine, Gemma Galgani who also shares the April 11th feast day.

I am at your service in this matter or any other matter.

Your obedient servant

Steven Lovison
