Default May He Rest In Peace!!!

I just heard this and looked it up on-line at some noteable Catholic web-sites and Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II has passed away.
A Great Man was he, loved by many, and admired by even the most notable world leaders who weren't exactly friends of the Catholic Church.
A very sad day this is indeed -a cloud of grief hangs over the Faithful, but the Hope he bestowed on us shines through forever strong.

He was a wonderful man, who touched many people. And whether you agreed with him or not, you have to repect all that he did.

Rest in Peace my Pope.

I think Pope John Paul II is one of those leaders that will be very hard to follow. I don't hink that whoever succeeds him will be able to demonstrate the same strength that he showed in holding the Church together through the controversies of the past two decades.
God Rest His Soul.

I agree. With all the controversy the Catholic Church has been through,Pope John Paul ll did a remarkable job keeping the church unified.

Rest in Peace Papa Juan Pablo.
