The Pope, a servants servant, emptied himself to pour out to the world the truth, light, and liberation through the Jesus...looking at the body of the Holy Father, I can't help but see the bodily reflection of his service to everyone, the suffering he endured, the peace in which he now rests. He earned his reward.
