Just all about John Paul II,

John Paul the Pope was so much of what we all are, he was caring, loving, sharing especially with his friends and staff.
John Paul would have been a best friend to all of us and we would have treasured friendship with him. Just imagine how fun it would have been to shared your love of our Lord with him and him with you and his love of the Lord.

We were so blessed to have him as a leader or our church and spirituality for the time that we did. May we emulate his life with in our own. Such a Blessing.
A joy to read and walk with him.
