Pope John Paul II was my Holy Father too. He made me want to be a better person. He has changed my life so profoundly that I am at a loss for words to explain it. He was truly a Shepherd sent by God to tend his flock. I am so sad that we have lost this wonderful, kind, holy, man just when this weary, materialistic world needs him so much. But he has left behind inspiring lessons for us all to learn from and continue on. And I find comfort in knowing that he is now in Heaven with the Lord Jesus. I pray he will still continue to guide us all. Thank you Pope John Paul II for a job well done!
