Karol Josef Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II), 1920-2005.

Godspeed, Papa. *Tears*

+ + + + + + +
Behold, the man.
He touched millions with his messages of peace.
His soft spoken voice shattered long standing walls.
He apologized for the Church's past sins.
Catholic or not, he welcomed one and all.

Behold, the man.
Trembling hands showed that he was not above us.
He traveled to the people right where they lived.
Observing him was a lesson in courage.
He gave until there was nothing left to give.

Behold, the man.

God Bless
Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado 4/3/2005

A most heart touching, inspiring, uplifting tribute to a man who lived for peace and served God in his own unique fashion; he will be missed by people of all faiths, all ages, all races; his goodness, courage, grace, and dignity crossed all who knew or saw him. God bless his memory, and God bless our Catholic friends as they mourn the loss of a true man of peace!~ Very well done; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

I believe this was a man who "walked his talk". Will be missed. Wonderful tribute.
Reviewed by Mr. Ed 4/3/2005
He traveled to the people right where they lived.

He surely did - and he will surely be missed. When he visited Chicago, he insisted that he be taken to the poorest neighborhoods, wanting to see for himself how the poor were forced to live, and praying fervently for an improvement in their plight.

Divine eulogy. Written with such great clarity.. His book. An invitation to joy. Is a work of beauty.
Dawn is correct.
He even died as he lived, and taught.

Reviewed by Dawn Richerson 4/2/2005
Karla -- you've touched on what it was that was so extaordinary about John Paul II. He knew who he was in faith and yet he used this not to separate him from humanity but to reach all sorts of people, Catholics and others of faith and often those still reaching to find faith. Excellent tribute. Dawn

Yes sis, behold the man. The man who travelled the same path as Ghandi, Mother Theresa, Princess Diana. Behold this man who gave so much of himself, that he sould be canonized a saint. We will all miss this man of great courage and bravery, whose only mission, was to speak the word of God, and bring peace to all. May the Lord Jesus bless him and you. and be with him and you always. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGGGGGSSSSSSS))))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
