JPII the "spark" from Poland?

More in preparation for an apologetics class at my parish… Has anyone heard anything about John Paul the Great being the “spark that will prepare the world for My final coming” that St. Faustina prophesied about before her death? Makes perfect sense to me, especially in light of his Theology of the Body as the antidote to the culture of death… but perhaps that’s only me.
