Pope John Paul II died today at 9:37pm (2:37pm EST). We’ve been watching the news most of the day about the Pope’s deteriorating health. There are many things that this Pope did that were revolutionary and his time as Pope has changed the Catholic church in many positive ways. There are still some changes that I feel need to take place but now is not the time to talk of them. Now is the time to remember a man who was in many senses of the word, great. He was great in his humility and his service to his people. He was great in bringing together the world’s youth as evidenced by his support of young people and the overwhelming crowds of youth who were in the square today. Yes the world will mourn his passing but will celebrate the great things that he accomplished as Pope.

We watched mostly NECN throughout the day and one of the members of our church Ernie Colamatti was on as an expert. I did a double take when I heard his name, I was like, hey he sits up front at church, I know his son and wife.

The Vatican website already has changed to reflect the Pope’s passing.
