Here are some facts about the pope..
Fact Sheet: Information About The Catholic Leader
BASIC FACTS
www.nbc5.com...


I think we should all say a prayer for Pope John Paul. He has dedicated his entire life to pray for others, and now, he needs ours, you may say oh he is too old, but he is the greatest pope, and I for one do not want him to go just yet.
Pope John Paul was born Karol Jozef Wojtyla on May 18, 1920.
He is 84 years old.
He has been pope for 26 years. That puts him in the top three longest-serving in history.
John Paul is the 263rd pope.
He is fluent in Polish, Italian and Latin. He also speaks conversational English, French, German and Spanish.
He is the first non-Italian pope since 1522. He is the first Slavic pope in history.

HEALTH


The pope suffers from Parkinson's Disease.
That's a degenerative nerve disease that makes it hard to control muscles and causes tremors.
He was sent to Gemelli hospital in Rome February 24 for testing.
Vatican sources say he was suffering breathing problems.
His suite at Gemelli hospital includes a chapel, kitchen and sleeping quarters for his aide.
The pope had spent February 1 - 10 there for problems related to the flu.
Some medical experts speculate the pope is suffering from some form of pneumonia.
On Oct. 3, 2003, the Vienna archbishop said the pope was nearing the last months of his life.
On September 11, 2003, the pope faltered while speaking in Slovakia.
Someone else finished the speech.

Hey,Thanks, and can I ask you a question? Where are you from? I ask because of what you said in your answer, that you and your people owe him a lot.
Thanks for keeping him in your prayers

I think it's important to pray for anyone that you "know" is ill.....I think prayer is real and works and they are answered may times. Even when they aren't, prayer helps the one you are praying for.

I believe the same thing LadyV, if one prayer is like a light that reaches to the heavens then many many prayers is like a continuous ligh of prayer, for the person. Thanks .

Croatia. I am from there. He helped us by begging the U.S. to recognize us as a country and to stop the Genocide. He came all the way to the U.S. and begged Clinton

I wont pray for the man, since I dont pray for anybody at all. All I can say is that I hope for him the same I hope for anybody of a good heart, that they live a long and prosperous life.

Well, even though you don't pray which is your own free will, you still wish him the best, so, I'll say Thanks for that. I think he would appreciae that as well.

Even though I am not Catholic (or any denomination of Christian, for that matter,) the Pope still functions as the "Christian Dalai Lama."

I have a weird blend of Buddhism and Taoism, which I call "Jedi." I will send Light to the Pope.

Good for you for saying that even though you are not of his faith, you should be proud of yourself.

Lobo, I plead to your soul to get back to his faith and recieve the sacrament of your Lord Jesus christ, without which none of us have any grace at all to stay away from sin and be
perfected.


As far as anything esle goes, I believe it is the time (now) to pray many rosaries daily.Time for talking is over.

I applaud you for your strong faith, but, please, and I am not criticizing you here at all, but, please do not try to change other people's beliefs. Just as you or I or anyone else here may believe in a certain religion does not mean that the religion we believe in is the right one, or, the one that will lead you to the Lord.
I believe that no matter what faith, race or religion a person is, that the one important thing to jesus is what is in our hearts. If we have good intentions he will see them, but, no man knows what religion is right, as it all has been watered down since the bible was writtten. Each man, or, religion putting their own spin on it and on certain passages, to specify a certain thing, or, meaning,it has.
The most important thing Truth is to love each other, and to treat each other with kindness and to help our fellow man, for it was not god who made religion, but man.
The bible may have many truths in it, and then again, it may have many things that were exaggerated by a man who went a step farrther when writing it. We will never know which religion is right, and I believe that religion is not even important, it's what is inside your heart that counts the most.
Please do not take this as any insult to any faith, for I was born a catholic, but I do not follow it, I follow what is in my heart and my soul.

Why then do you love the pope? don't you realize that the pope is the vicar of the Lord jesus christ? The jesus that said he was God of heaven and earth?


The pope is supposed to convert souls to Christ jesus, and to the mass of christ which gives us sanctifying grace to beat satan and sin. there is no other way but through Christ and ive seen his miracles, and his teachings are true.


The pope does not believe in all religions, but only the catholic church, the bride of Christ, with the sacraments of perfection. this is how its been since the first pope to the last.




So I ask you with sincere heart, how can you admire the pope, yet not what he stands for which is jesus and only jesus as the means of saving our soul?


peace.

why

Text Red I love the pope because he has inspired so many people, and he is a true believer.

The pope is supposed to convert souls to Christ jesus, and to the mass of christ which gives us sanctifying grace to beat satan and sin. there is no other way but through Christ and ive seen his miracles, and his teachings are true.

I as a person can save my own soul, by being faithful to the Lord's word, and believing in God, and by not judging others for their beliefs, but rather I know that we all think differently about religions, but, while there are many religions there is only 1 God, and that is where I place my soul, in his hands, for I trust him with it only.

The pope does not believe in all religions, but only the catholic church, the bride of Christ, with the sacraments of perfection. this is how its been since the first pope to the last.






So I ask you with sincere heart, how can you admire the pope, yet not what he stands for which is jesus and only jesus as the means of saving our soul?

I admire him for his faith his hard work to pray for others, for the time he spends to travel to reach the people who place their trust in him, and that he is a excellent example of the word, 'good.'


peace.

I love all life - as YOUR lord Jesus commanded - even you, who persecute me for my non-belief. Religion or creed does not matter to me - all Men are worthy of life. Should I be dancing around the room, happy that he is sick?

This is not a thread for preaching or conversion, and to be honest, it's not going to work. I suggest you give it up. I have no problem with you, other than your intolerance for other religious beliefs. Here I am, "praying" that the Pope is healed, and here you are critisizing me for it. Very disrespectful.

The Dalai Lama doesn't "believe in" any religions other than Buddhism... does that mean a damn thing to you? Your statements doesn't to me, either.


So I ask you with sincere heart, how can you admire the pope, yet not what he stands for which is jesus and only jesus as the means of saving our soul?

Because, regardless of what his faith is, he is strong in it. The Pope is a leader, and is no less worthy of admiration than any other leader in the world. Personally, I am absolutely disgusted that you would antagonize, critisize, and otherwise harrass me for what I have done. It is very unbecoming on your part - as a Christian, and as a Man.

Grow some balls, and some tolerance.

lene, the pope prays for souls to convert to jesus christ. He is the vicar of Christ, the head of the universal catholic church that holds, the only
church that holds the sacrament of perfection.

Lobo, I truly love your soul, and you can take what I said how you want, but if you ever knew the effects of sanctifying grace, you would never want to leave it, and ive felt it through communion, and hes led me to
this church not me, and the effects of a true latin mass are super natural. I literally from experience could never beat sin on my own without this grace which God honestly is the realest thing
ive ever felt in my life. My heart feals like exploding for you souls and for Jesus honestly.


I honestly wish you would believe, not from my intolerance, but from my experience in sanctifying grace, its truly supernatural and I can feal my heart growing like jesus.




God Bless.

My intention for starting this thread was to pray for the pope, and not to have anyone slander you, criticize you, or, anyone else for your/their beliefs . I am sorry for that, for you still sent light which is truly good, and I respect it and think it was aa generous thing for you to do.

Truth.
I do not need anyone to have faith, I am guided by faith by Jesus who lives in my heart, I trust no-one but the Lord when it comes to religion, for he knows best,, and how to teach me so I can become wise in all things.

To try to convert someone because you think you are right, is not acceptable, it is their belief and just as I respect your belief and your faith you should do the same with others you meet. Maybe then the fighting over whose religion is right will stop
If we go to heaven and god asks "What religion are you?' And I say, ""Lord, I am a Catholic."
God then may say, "Sorry but that is the wrong religion I taughtm, I taught people to love one another, and to help one another in times of good and times of bad", so I go with my gut, and I pray everyday for him to show me the way to live my life, and how to help others, the way he would help them. I look deep inside and I do not like to judge anyone,that's for him to do.
