Pope John Paul II Died today at 84

After a long battle with many illnesses, Pope John Paul II died today at 9:37 PM (Vatican Time) while in his apartment in the Vatican City. He was 84 years old. His illnesses worsened in the past couple of days and it was easily noticible that his hour was near. After refusing to go back to the hospital yesterday and today and sliding in and out of consciousness, one of the most noble of men and one of the world's leading religious figures passed away peacefully.

Pope John Paul II did so much for the world of religion and for the betterment of all people and relations. He has been the most instrumental part in the unity between Christians, Catholics, Jews, and Muslims during his 26 year service as the Pope. He will be greatly missed.

As of this time, no successor had been named.


Today I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long
Gonna make the most of it

Today I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late

--lyrics from "One Day Too Late" by Skillet
from their new album "Awake"

A very sad day indeed. The man was a real diplomat, regardless of what people thought of his views. He could get anyone to listen to him and he truly was a champion for peace. R.I.P. to a man with a beautiful smile and a gentle spirit.

he was one of the very few popes who has ever had a good command of english and enabled him and his church to appeal well beyond just catholics. perhaps the next pope will have some more sense in issues like priests marrying though.

Well, might of told a lie.
But never lived one.

But surely saved one.
Alright, now itís time for us to let you go.
