Pope John Paul II in Lake Chalres!

Just wanted to see if you were paying attention. He's in Heaven, guys, not Lake Charles. But on Wednesday December 12th there will be a public veneration with a Cassoc that belonged to JP II(The dress-looking thing that all priests can wear, but the Pope's is white) at St Henry's Catholic church from 10am to 10pm.
It has been quite an experience- we have had the incredible blessing of having it at our house a few times while it's been in town. If you are in the area (Houston, Lafayette, BR, etc) please know that the Dawson house can be a pit stop for you on your way to see/pray with the Cassoc. His intercession in our family has been huge! Both our sons are connected with him (John Paul's namesake and Jacob's birthday is his feast day). God has blessed us indeed.

I brought the three boys there tonight and completely missed it because I did not know it was in the Day Chapel. We ended up getting to spend some time at the feet of Our Lady of Guadalupe asking her intercession for our intentions! So I guess that was exactly where we were supposed to be at the moment!

If you know of it being anywhere else where I can bring my family to venerate it, please let me know, my email is crystalgayle3719 at
