I am sure there is much blogging about the death of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II today. Like many I am a great admirer of JP2. I am grateful for the leadership he gave not just to the Roman Communion but to all Christians. Since the protestant reformation there has been debate and schism about the role of the Pope in the church catholic. But regardless of one's view on his formal role, Christians of all stripes have looked to this pope as a leader of all Christians.

He will be missed, but now he goes to be with the Lord until that great and final day of resurrection. He died a good death demonstrating that one can face death with courage, faith and hope because of our Lord Jesus Christ. How fitting for JP2 to go to heaven during this season of resurrection.
