As a blind Roman Catholic who was brought back into the church by the words and actions ( as described to me) of our late Holy Father John Paul II. I will never forget two dates: His election in the late 70's, and when I was introduced to The Holy Father on his Papal visit to Baltimore.
Whoever the college of cardinals pick as the 264 pope - to fills the shoes of the fisherman. That pope is going to have a hard time trying to compare to John Paul II, and its for a simple reason John Paul II told us what the church expected especially the younger members of the church.
John Paul II was the people's Pope, and will missed world wide by all, by exceptlly the young of the church. Our late Holy Father was not an admistrator as some wanted instead he was an EVANGELIST of the word of GOD.
May you become St. John Paul The Great, but until that day comes enjoy your eternal life with Jesus and Mary.
Eternal rest grant upon you John Paul II and may Perpetual Light shine on you.
