Pope John Paul II lived up to his being our "Holy Father". Since to be holy means to be set apart, he showed us how to stand up against the dictates of the world and to bear the light of Christ to all. Like a father, he led us his children with such love and joy. I have been blessed to have him as my holy father during most of my growing up years. I will read his works and learn of his ways more in order to become a better Catholic. He is a huge loss to us but he must have fulfilled his duty here on earth already. I will miss you, John Paul II. Please give an embrace for me to our Lord Jesus.
My condolences to the ones who are closest to him. I share your pain and your joy. God bless always.
Love and prayers,
