A Hero For The Ages

As I am sure we are all aware, Pope John Paul II passed away on Saturday.

More than any man in my lifetime, he has had the greatest positive impact on the history of mankind. Men like him come along only once a millennium.

A deep respect for life was the hallmark to just about everything the Pope did. It was evident in his sermons and his encyclicals. It was evident in the way he lived his life, despite a great amount of physical suffering.

And perhaps most importantly, a profound respect for life was the central theme in the way the Pope welcomed his death.

John Paul II truly was a "hero for the ages".

He was the Pope of all Pope's..It just shows how 1 man can change the world and the immense influence he had. He will be sorely missed.

Well done, Joe. At work, I put up a poster titled HEROES, with the Holy Father on one side and SFC Paul Ray Smith (most recent MOH awardee) on the other. Role models worth emulating aren't hard to find, you just have to look in the right places.

Dominus Vobiscum
