Pope John Paul II Has Died.

Pope John Paul II died about 40 minutes ago. I’ve been watching CNN almost non stop this week, hoping against hope that an 84 year old man with advanced Parkinson’s disease would beat the odds, if just for a while. He’s gone to deliver his message to God in person, now. I’m Catholic, so I doubt I’ll post anything else today or tomorrow. He was elected just about 6 months after I was born. He’s done a lot of great things for the world and the Church. They’re already saying he might well be known as John Paul the Great, in the history books. He deserves it.
