"John Paul II, We Love You!"
To this day, I remember the World Youth Day that was held in Manila, Philippines.
As a kid in the 80's the Pope was just a head of the Catholic church, i knew him as the man who says the Easter Mass every year that we watch. But experiencing him during the WYD in 1995 changed all that. His presence can be felt by those around him. At that point I knew that this man was chosen by God. I learned to love what he does for the church and mankind. My wife has her own special experience with the Pope in WYD 2000.
My wife and I are saddened by the loss of Pope John Paul II. We know that you are in a better place today. May Mama Mary welcome you with an embrace in heaven.
We will miss you. Our hearts still shout, "John Paul II, We Love You!".
