Pope Dies

The Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, has just passed away. A crowd of several tens of thousands gathered in St. Peter's Square observed a moment of silence followed by a burst into applause.

VIVA PAPA!

Now he has gone to rest his tired bones until that day when Christ comes again.

Our prayers go with you!

We will miss you, Papa! As kids we would watch him say the Angelus in our square in Castelgandolfo. He has been like a father to us, may you rest in peace.

Nyugodjék békében! Az emberiséget ismét nagy veszteség érte, még ha nem is tud róla...

(Rest in peace! This is again a great loss for the mankind, even people do not know it...)

I'm not a Catholic, but I've been extemely sad since the Pope's death. He was such an amazing man! I wish I could've met him myself. I'm just glad he's in Heaven with Jesus now. God Bless him and everyone else. May Pope John Paul II rest in peace.

May you rest in peace, dear Holy Father. You are free of your eartly suffering and at the banquet table of the Lord Jesus. I was proud that you were Polish and Pope. Until we meet in Heaven, rest in peace.

I lost my father to cancer two weeks ago. Now with the Pope gone, I feel like I have lost two fathers. I rejoice for them in heaven but my selfishness grieves for my own loss...May they both rest in peace, may the Eternal light shine upon them, and may they pray for me.
