As Raymond Arroyo, Fr. Mitch Paqua, and Fr. Francis Mary were talking about Our Holy Father, the network went off the air. When they came back on, they informed all viewers that His Holiness Pope John Paul II had just passed away.
When one looked at John Paul II, one saw not him but Jesus. This holy man poured out his entire life doing God's work. When in the presence of Pope John Paul II, you were really in the presence of Jesus. How blessed we all are for having been given such a gift! Pray for him but more for the world in general and the Cardinals specifically so that they may choose whom God wishes to fill the shoes of the Fisherman. Amen.
