St. John Paul the Great, 10th anniversary

Ten years ago today, St. John Paul II went home. In his 26 years as pontiff, he transformed the Church - and in my view, got it back on track.

Shortly after his passing, the Cardinals gathered in Rome to select Pope Benedict XVI. At the time, I wrote the following haiku:

April morning -
cardinals in conclave
at the bird feeder

Pax et bonum

Thank you for this posting. Has it really been that long? I guess I never took notice of the date, but he is one of the saints I pray to every day. It'll be good to include special mention tonight, as I spend all night in the chapel, making sure that THIS night, He will not be left alone.
