(Vatican Radio) To mark the day when two popes were canonised together British author Joanna Bogle compiled a prayer book by the title of 'St John XXIII and St John Paul II'. She recently came round to our Vatican Radio studios and told Veronica Scarisbrick why she was inspired to write this 76 page booklet published by the Catholic Truth Society.
Listen to Joanna Bogle interviewed by Veronica Scarisbrick:
In this interview she explains how this prayer book is at once a memento of this extraordinary event, and a practical resource for prayer. During their lives, she says both John XXIII and John Paul II taught about prayer and in this booklet you can find the prayers they knew and loved and invoke the intercession of the saints that they loved. But also following their canonisations, she insists, we can pray to them, asking for their aid as we open our hearts to God.
