  • Pope John Paul II has died

    At 9:37 PM local time, the Holy Father Pope John Paul II died. It is a sad day for Catholics and everyone else. He was first non-Roman Pope in almost 5 centuries. He's had quite an extraordinary life and he's been through a lot.

      I am by no means religious at all, and in my opinion he is just another person that died today from the hunders/thousands that die every day.

      now if only we had TV reports on every single death.

        I consider myself to be religious, but not an intense, "practicing" Catholic. So while I am saddened by the death of John Paul II, I also know that it was probably better for him, since he's now free of all pain an suffering.

        RIP John Paul II (1920-2005)

          I am sadden today to have learned that John Paul died today at age 84. No matter if you are a man or women of faith... Chances are John Paul had some impact in the world you know today. He will be greatly missed by all, but not forgotten. I do not know what comes after this life. I can only hope that what ever is beyond this life is of a better place and that he is there now.

          Good-Bye, John Paul.

            But not every person has touched and affected the millions of millions of lives that the Pope has.

            He deserves all the TV coverage and more. He has shown the world another lesson: How to die with dignity.

            I will miss you Pope John Paul II.

              I am not a religious person. But the pope is the pope, and without him our world would not be the way it is today. He was a great man who did alot of great things.

                I agree. I'm not religious at all and I mourn the passing of a great man.

                  One such example of how he has shaped the world that you live in? I mean I'm not going to get into a debate about something I honestly know so little about (The Pope). I have no recollection of any events that involve the Pope other than the millenium mass, and can't find any information on any particularly great things that he has done besides helping oust communism out of Poland and fighting for human rights.

                  Nevertheless, I can see millions of people around the world are in mourning so they have my empathy

                    He was a major contributer to the downfall of the Soviet Union as well.

                      I am very sorry to hear this, his voice meant a lot to a lot of people - spread around the world.

                          I find it quite disturbing that they have put his body on display on international tv.

                            He had a major contribution to the fall of the Communist regime in Poland. Also, he was the first Pope to ever visit non-Catholic countries(like Romania, in the late 90s).
                            RIP John Paul II

                              Although many may share this opinion, to state it at this time seems quite intolerant and distasteful...
