"May his death remind each of us that some day we too must die and enter into God's presence -- and may we each commit ourselves afresh to Jesus Christ, who died and rose again for our salvation."

This is a beautiful tribute.

Pope John Paul II and Billy Graham. Two great men. Peter and Paul.

Well said. John Paul II was truly a great man for his time.

Yes two truly great men. May God and the Pope watch over Billy Graham as his health is deteriorating as well.

I am so happy to see the former divisions among Christians melt away. We pray for the unity of the church, and we pray that God's Name will be One.

You know - it really says a lot when someone (like Billy Graham or even myself) who has tremendous theological differences with the Catholic Church can still have such huge respect for someone like John Paul II.

I don't know many people who would argue with the fact that this Pope has done more for the cause of peace and for morality in the world in the last century.

As a Baptist, I tend to think in terms of "Saved" and "unsaved" or "lost", and the term Saved often doesn't get applied to Catholics in my mind (and please don't blast me for that - I'm not stirring for a fight), but if ever there has been a Catholic who I would consider to be a "Saved" man - John Paul II would definitely fit that bill. George Bush's comments were also right on track.

This Catholic thanks Billy Graham for his kind words and prays for him in his time of suffering.

This staunch Catholic is once again impressed by Graham's nobility and Christian charity.

Can't disagree with a word of what he said.

Fifty years ago, such words from an evangelical leader would have been nigh unthinkable. We've made some progress, in no small thanks to the Holy Father. And Billy Graham.
