He's not afraid to go, he knows he's got a first class pass to Heaven and he's looking forward to it

I don't think he's quite gone yet.

Vatican is denying it.

You know it's interesting you bring this up. I also remember some people being terribly offended when Ronald Reagen died and some discussed his policies instead of merely hero worshipping him. When people I know (including my own parents) are dying or have died, I think about and discuss their lives -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. While some may think it is horrible to do this I think it is actually more of an honor to the person to reflect upon his or her entire life than to sweep the more difficult parts under the rug.

And if I do this with my own family members, I'm surely going to do it with people who have chosen to become public figures.

Pope John Paul Dead!

I just heard from an LRC staff member that the Pope has passed away! Though expected, it was a shock to hear. Any comments, thoughts?

JP2 as security

When the time comes, I look forward to John Paul the Great escorting me into the "heart", "ellipse" or whatever at the Heavenly Arena to stand next to Jesus and Mary as we watch U2 take the stage following their opening act, The Beatles. That would be F*$#ING AWESOME!!!

all the news sources state he's still alive.

Besides, this is sooooo not official.

Come on, nobody expected hero worship, but the posts that literally said they were glad he was dead and they hoped he was burning in hell, well, that's a bit extreme

Okay, maybe she heard wrong, or the dj misinterpreted it!

Oops.

Yeah - he's not dead yet (the Vatican has squashed these reports -- apparently they said he was flat-lining and the Vatican said the machine that detects that isn't even in the papal apartment). It sounds like it's coming soon, though.

Since I was just subtly told my news was not official in that forum, I'm wondering if anyone has heard on the radio if the Pope is dead. I just heard an LRC staff member say they announced it on the radio, but was it an error?

I stand corrected. But it's pretty touch and go. Rather intense. and sad, and still shocking. I think many still hope there is a chance he might hang on a while longer...

apparently reuters reported it earlier that he'd died, but there was never any official word from the vatican. now the vatican is denying that he's dead. so apparently he's still alive, but i think the end is near. he's definitely in a critical state.

I think his final hours are coming and that he has given himself in to the hands of God.

I am not a super religious person, but I am very sad... as a Catholic, I think that John Paul II transformed the way Catholicism was shared around the world. He traveled and met with as many people as he could. This was a new thing.

John Paul II, I hope that, from up there, you finally feel that you have made it to the end of the road. That now, after giving us so much, is your time to receive.

You were truly a Pope... truly the saintest person in the world.

God bless you.
