Well, he's gone home to God now, may he rest in peace. He was an amazing man, not perfect, of course, no one is, but I'm saddened by the loss. It's going to be so strange having another pope, I have never been Catholic under any other pope. I'm sure that's true of many cradle Catholics these days as well.

not very significant statement, but appropriate.

I agree. This is the first time since the election I've actually turned on the news.

I do think such opulence has rotted their ability to relate to common society, and, as a result, I do think that Catholicism has little to no regard for anything its followers believe or want. They're the "kings"; we're the "subjects," as far as they're concerned.

You're right. All those 50, 000 people standing in St. Peters Square or the ones gathered together praying in churches or homes all over the world ?They believe "that Catholicism has little regard for anything its followers believe or want."
Good call.

I hope that he died a good death, and that he has found peace. I did not think him a Pope worthy of 'great' or 'good', but for everything he did that I disagreed with, I can't say that he didn't do any good.

I hope his successor will be a better one.
