The Pope of Popes


WELL DONE, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
-- Matthew 25:21.

There were giants in the earth in those days.
-- Genesis 6:4.

Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel?
-- 2 Samuel 3:38.

Thou shalt live together in love, insomuch as thou shalt weep for the loss of them that die . . . And it shall come to pass that those that die in me shall not taste of death, for it shall be sweet unto them.
-- Doctrine and Covenants 42:45-46.

All'umanità, che talora sembra smarrita e dominata dal potere del male, dell'egoismo e della paura, il Signore risorto offre in dono il suo amore che perdona, riconcilia e riapre l'animo alla speranza. È amore che converte i cuori e dona la pace. Quanto bisogno ha il mondo di comprendere e di accogliere la Divina Misericordia!
-- Pope John Paul II.

I will have more to say later, but on this sad day, which all of us knew must inevitably come, we are all Catholics.
