POPE JOHN PAUL I I , THE GREAT
1920 - 2005
POPE JOHN PAUL I I , THE GREAT,WAS A MAN OF TRUTH AND NOT LIE.
A PRIEST LIKE MELCHIZEDECK OF OLD, IN OUR TIME
WILL HIS SUCCESSOR FOLLOW IN HIS LINE
CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS WAS HE
A CHRIST LIKE MAN HE COULD BE
WHO COULD COMPARE TO JESUS
YET, IN SOME WAYS HE DOES
HIS LOVE FOR HIS FLOCK UNBELIEVABLE
TO GUIDE US IN LIFE AND IN DEATH
TO BE THE BEST WE COULD BE
FOR THE GOD WHO CARRIED US ALL
WE CHOOSE HEAVEN OR WE CHOOSE HELL
TO CHOOSE HEAVEN, WE WILL DO WELL
LET US REMEMBER OUR BROTHER
WHO WILL LIVE ON IN INFINITY
JUST AS LIFE IS ETERNAL
HE WILL BE REMEMBERED FOREVER
WE WILL SEE HIM AGAIN TO BE SURE
IF WE WALK THE PATH SET OUT FOR US
IT IS BUT A SIMPLE THING TO DO
BE NOT AFRAID TO LIVE A LIFE OF TRUTH AND NOT LIE
I have written this poem about Pope John Paul 11, The Great. He was an artist, an actor, a poet, a man of prayer, a contemplative and a member of the Order Of Carmel. He had a great devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother to All
Also, he was a man of intergrity, beliving all life is sacred from conception to natural death. He was Christ-Like in all he did and said.
He stood firm in his beliefs in church teachings.
He was a lover of peace and unity for all faiths.
He loved all humanity
Just as he did, I believe in God, the Holy Catholic Church and all that it teaches
and in life everlasting

|He was an artist, an actor, a poet, a man of prayer, a contemplative and a member of the Order Of Carmel.
He was also a Pole, as am I, which made me very proud.

|May your faith be a shining example to all of us. God Bless You for this wonderful poem about our Saintly Pope John the second. It won't be long before the Catholic Church declares him a true Saint. Happy Easter to you, wonderful woman.|

What a capacity of love in your writings, like the love John Paul had for our Holy Church! His famous last words "let me go and be with my Father"

A beautiful, compassionate tribute to a a great man of faith. Well done!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
I saw him in 1977 or 78, when I was flying to Philadelphia to visit my second eldest sister (when she lived there). Of course, I was a long way away from him, but felt blessed anyway. :)
May God bless you this Easter, and always, as He has me. :)
