Totus Tuus (“totally yours” or “all yours”) was the personal and episcopal motto of St. John Paul II. The motto is inspired by the teaching of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort who wrote:

Tuus totus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt...

I am all yours, and all that I have is yours, O most loving Jesus, through Mary, your most holy Mother.
