Paeans, an inspirational book written to glorify the Lord was sent to Pope John Paul II. A warm response was received today on February 2, 2004.
It was over three years ago that I had written Pope John Paul II. I had at that time written him a warm letter in the Lord. I spoke to him about keeping a diary with the Lord. At that time it was my personal diary, yet God had other plans. In his letter I stated, " Dear Pope John Paul II, I pray that maybe some day I would be able to write a book for the Lord." At that time my mother was sick, and I was taking care of her. In God's timing, the Lord blessed me with words to write and the Lord and I wrote our book. It is now years later and in faith, I sent an autographed copy to Pope John Paul II. I only asked him for an autographed photo of himself, for my dear mother. He has now gratiously responded and he sent my mother a photo. God bless you Pope John Paul II. His letter states from Monsignor Gabriele Caccia, Assessor:
From the Vatican, 19 January 2004

His Holiness will remember you and your Mother in his prayers. Invoking upon you joy and peace in our Lord Jesus Christ, he cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessing.

In deep love and emotion in the Lord Jesus Christ, I am proud to have my inspirational book reach the Vatican. May God bless you Pope John Paul II with renewed health and may the book touch your life in a very special way in God's love.
