Pope John Paul II has passed
Now it's official, the Vatican confirmed it.
RIP, we know he will.
So it would seem. Condolences to all Catholics.
He was a GREAT man. Earth has lost someone special. Heaven has become even better......
He was strong until the end. The Catholic world is mourning, I know I am. RIP Pope John Paul II.
At least he's out of his pain and misery, he was a tough cookie to put it mildly. RIP
May he Rest In Peace
Here went THE example...
Seems to me he lived well and he died well.
It looks like our threads have been merged. Good.
I think He will be one of the great Popes - as Saint Leo the Great, and Saint Gregory the Great. He stood firmly by His beliefs and faith until His end, He was conservative as some put it, but I think He brought the faith closer to many, and had a great impact on the entire world.
He'll go down of one of the church's greatest men.
Yes he was, a great man that happened to be Catholic. He reached alot of people other Popes had not, He went places and countries other popes had not, He visited places others never thought to go. He crossed religous lines and was a great humanitarian. I am not catholic but a great man deserves recognition, Thus my RIP.
He is a man of faith and a man of God.
He was a great example to all christians on how to reach out to those outside the faith to work with them.
He was never afraid to put himself or his faith on the line, and was almost killed for it, yet God saw him through.
And God has called his messenger back home.
RIP Karol Jozef Wojtyla (John Paul II)
May your treasures in heaven be expontially more abundant than the ones you have left here.
With the passing of Mother Theresa and now Pope John Paul II, we have lost two amazing, Godly people.
RIP. I'm he is now reaping his heavenly reward. A truly perfect example of a humanitarian.
Does anyone know the process by which they go by now to choose a new pope?
The cardinals gather, discuss and vote. It should take a few weeks.
There's no reason the pope should be one of the cardinals, I think. There has been guesses that he would be of third world origins, continuing on the "external" choice tradition started by the now-late John Paul II - he was the first pope to come outside Italy in 300 years.
