In reply to My tribute to Pope John Paul, posted by rayww on April 5, 2005, at 15:08:08

ray, great idea.

Pope JP II is the only Pope I have known. As a Catholic, he has been in my prayers nightly. Have you read his biography? It may make you appreciate him even more.

I have a small anecdote. As a child, I wrote to the Pope, concerned that because my parents were divorced, and even though I was a baptized Catholic, that somehow I was "less" of a Catholic.

He wrote back (or someone did anyway) and that letter was so full of love and reassurance, I carried it with me for almost a week, even slept with it under my pillow (hey, I was 12).

I feel he has done so much to begin to unite Christians and Jews. And it is my opinion, in this day and age, Christians and Jews need to unite, to preserve our Judeo Christian values and even in the interest of self-preservation.

The next Pope has HUGE shoes to fill.
