Those who knew St.John Paul II well said that he was often in conversation with Mary. On one such occasion, Monsignor George Tracy was concelebrating Mass with the Holy Father, and after Communion could hear him praying aloud. Monsignor Tracy noticed that he was extremely upset and seemed to be sobbing, “No, Maria, no, Madonna.” After Mass was finished, a Vatican prelate asked the monsignor if he enjoyed his Mass with the Pope. He replied in the affirmative, but said that after Communion, the Holy Father was noticeably shaken, and it seemed that he was talking to the Virgin Mary. The prelate replied, “We know. He does that all the time, and she’s the only one he listens to around here.
