Something is missing these days. My heart and soul keep reaching out for the mercy and love that you gave so freely through a lifetime of sorrows and trials. You are my family's Pope, you were here when we were brought into the Church. Your faith, truth and devotion to Christ are part of the reasons we became Roman Catholic. Now, we wait for the time when we will (if we are worthy) come through the gates of heaven and see your smiling face joyous to see us once more, standing next to the Savior you served so well here on earth. We will be waiting for that day when we once again will feel your love. I know too, you will be waiting for us.
