Pope John Paul II, the spiritual leader to more than 1 billion Catholics who spread his message worldwide in his 26-year papacy, has died, Vatican sources tell CNN. Details soon.





And the World Cries!


The Man.....The Legacy



Pope John Paul II , the bold, humanitarian leader of the Roman Catholic Church, has died. He was 84 years old. As the very end drew near, the pontiff refused to be taken to a hospital and instead spent his final hours in the papal apartment in Rome.

A tireless and outspoken campaigner for world peace and humanitarian causes, Pope John Paul II was the most traveled pontiff in history, criss-crossing the globe on missions that were often as political as they were religious.

In his overseas journeys, the pope visited communist Cuba, Muslim Syria, India and war-torn Bosnia. A native of Poland, he played a crucial role in the downfall of communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.

In the most significant papal trip, John Paul II became the first pope in history to officially visit Israel when he fulfilled a lifelong dream to tour the Holy Land and walk in the steps of Jesus Christ.

The March 2000 pilgrimage through the Middle East broke down long-standing religious barriers and was a crowning moment in the pope's quest, throughout his 26-year papacy, to reconcile Christians and Jews.

I am truly sad about this, although not a Catholic, this was a good Pope and he held his ground against the evils of the modern world. Sad day indeed.

Let's see what father whats his face has to say about this.... when do the neuron bombs start dropping again?
,(first rule about predicting the future, don't get so much into about the specifics that's why nostradamus(sp?) got it right so many times)

p.s. father wingate will probably say he meant the next guy
p.s.s. according to the saint that predicted the popes the next is the son of the olives, so either he's from the United States(olive branch of peace). Or we get another one of those buggers from italy

I don't see it as a "sad day" for humanity the throne of San Peter is empty another pope and king will be elected, that is what is means the throne is empty.

People mourn and is OK, but it should be rejoice that he is finally with the creator away from age, illness and pain.

Umm, Why exactly? Would you care to elaborate?


I don't have anything partcular on. Am I going to be visited by a mysterious stranger or go insane looking for some variety on television?

Seriously... What are you talking about?

just hope the whole world will follow his message of humanity, love and his efforts to bring the Catholic message to as wide an audience as possible.

He was a revolutionary conservative and was very forward-minded to dialogue with other religion.

energetic and hard-working the pope traveld to 120 countrys.

rest in peace Karol Jozef Wojtyla... and say Hi to God and Jesus for me hehe

Ok Pope is dead. So what?

Sorry but i dont really see what relevance this has, there will be a new Pope, he will make some small changes but carry on in much the same way.

He did good things in his life, but they are outweighed by his mistakes in terms of family planning.

Yes its both sad and a happy day today.. sad because the pope has left us but happy because we know hes with God at the momment.

Nobody's perfect....but can you say that there's others who did as much as him in the las 30 years for the humanity...

The nine days is part of the ancient rituals of passing, leaving the religious or not religious feelings aside, this is history in the making and is hundreds of years old.

for people interested in historical facts this is one of the rare moments to witness them.

Occurs if you have not regard for history it doesn't matter.

The American flag is half mast, to honor.

What are you talking about? Of course there will be another pope (thats a title). There will never be another Karol Wojtyla, just like there wont be another Jeff Buckley (there will be other American singers and guitarists).

"The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass
of our life, the clearer we should see through it."
—Pope John Paul II

What misktakes are those? Unless your Catholic they shouldnt matter to you. We dont believe in abortion. Its a "Catholic" thing that I wouldnt expect you to understand.

As in "Jeff Buckley" the alcoholic musician? Yes there will be plenty more of those. I dont understand the connection. If your here to flame, move on. This isnt the thread for you.

Im still waiting on a feeble response for you on this one..

Let us grieve the loss of a great man, who lead a great life. My uncle was a Chicago cop when the Pope came here to visit. He was literally a few feet away from him and had a chance to speak with him. He wasnt a religous man, but said he never had a feeling like what he did after speaking to the Pope for a few seconds. The pope blessed him and his family. This is a sad day.
