Thank you, so much, neo, for posting this.

(And I really liked your subject line.)

I am not a Catholic, but I have loved this Pope as long as I can remember.

I remember 1981 being scared to death when he was shot, and so encouraged at the way he rebounded.

He was truly a man who loved the Lord, and all people, with all his heart, soul and mind.

I believe the world has a rather large hole in its collective heart tonight :-(

I especially pray for my Catholic brothers and sisters, who are feeling the sorrow most deeply.

I thank God for allowing us to have a man such as John Paul II with us on earth for these 85 years.

Ya, he seemed to be a great guy.
It's funny how only after someones death do you get to learn how wonderful they really were in life.
He seemed to become more open as he aged.
thanks for your comment.

At Mass today the children sang the Alabama song "Angels among us." We all cried.

I believe there ARE Angels among us, and some are exhaulted and some are ordinary do-gooders. As we pray during this time of mourning I hope we can offer global prayers for peace, love and simple gifts.

I was touched to be reminded of how much more vital John Paul II was before the Parkinson's took over his body. That smile was like a beacon.

I can't help but think what an incredible burden it must be to be pope. Oh, there are gifts to it, and perks, but still... I pray for the late Holy Father as well as whoever is called to take on this role in the near future.

I don't say this about just anyone.

But he was a great, great man. The courage he showed was incredible.

I've been to Poland many times, beginning right after the iron curtain fell. John Paul is revered there, not just as the pope, but as the person who gave them the strength to stay with Solidarity and to fight for their freedom.

But now I'm regretting I always arramged my trips for when the he *wasn't* in Krakow.
