Eternal Rest Unto Pope John Paul II (1920-2005)
Once standing only 50 feet away from the Pope, I remember how it felt to be so near him and to be awed by his presence. It is sad to hear of his death but the Pope himself said on one of his birthdays, "I am one year closer to eternity." His suffering has ended and he is in a better place now. A great man of God has died and he has met his Maker.
"Eternal rest grant Pope John Paul II, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen."
