Pope John Paul II

Finally, he had passed away after long suffering from Pakinson’s dicease at age 84. He is the 264th pope, the figure head of the Catholic church, which I belongs to. He is an admirable man, although I don’t agree on his ultra conservative view on moral issues, he is well deserved for his credits in fighting against communism, dialogs with other religions and stand up against Bush for world peace. In order to pay tribution to him, I decided to go to mass tomorrow morning. After all the dust are settled, the next focus will be who is the next pontiff. I wish a priest with similiar personality and as respectful as John Paul II will be chosen, however a liberal mind like John XXIII is more than welcome. With the many conservative cardinals appointed by John Paul II, the chance of electing a conservatives one is high. However, we could not rule out the work of the Holy Spirit that may lead the church to another path. John XXIII had succeed under the heavy installment of conservative cardinates by the formor Pius XII, history may repeat itself again. The only concern may arise if a liberal pope is indeed elected, there maybe conspiracy to kill him like the short-lived John Paul I before John Paul II. Anyways, I was worrying that the health condition of John Paul II may not allow him to show up in the World Youth Day. Now, at least it is guarantee that I will able to meet a Pope this summer, no matter who he is.
