The Last Days of Pope John Paul the Great

The Vatican is now reporting that the last words of Pope John Paul II (the great) were "Let me go to the house of the Father". What a beautiful final message. It is full of faith and trust in the Lord.

Pope John Paul lived a life of love, faith and suffering. He was a strong believer in the redemptive value of suffering. He is a shining example to the world that a person and be failing, suffering, and in the end unable to do much, but still have a trememdous impact on the world and those around him.

I am a grateful member of the JPII generation. His example has had a tremendous impact on my life and my ministry. For that, I will be forever grateful.
John Paul II, we love you.
Santo Subito!
