THANK YOU, Salvation.

Your thread is beautiful and inspiring.

When half of FR is going dull with silly opus *WHAT ABOUT ME* threads - it is absolutely beautiful that you dedicate a thread to the main news maker of today (and many days, for us Catholics) - and a man, who actually made a difference.

Thank you again, Salvation.

And sleep well, Il Papa.

Thank you so much for this, Salvation. I love seeing pictures of him as a healthy youthful man. My oldest son didn't recognize him. JP was really quite the looker! LOL. =)

I'm having a hard time winding down for sleep. I want to keep vigil with him.

He's a good man, a great man, a great leader, who was also the right man, the right leader for the Catholic Church when he was elected. His death can only mean that he has fulfilled the duties set before him, because of course, God wouldn't call him home before it was time. 'Well done, thou good and faithful servant.' And I say that as a Southern Baptist. He did me a lot of good, especially with his "Be not afraid" message, and he was a stumbling block to those who think Christian teaching must change with the changing times, or that the Catholic Church needs to be a democracy instead of fulfilling its sole purpose, which is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Anglican Church has tried to 'modernize' and look where it's gotten them.

The world will be poorer with his passing. I remember esp. how he got the young people all fired up. When he came to Chicago a few years ago, all the youth flocked to hear his message, like it was a big rock concert. They were hungry to hear his message.
