Truly, Pope John Paul II is a messenger-son of God. His earthly mission of peace and stance on values is a universal message for all. The millions of people who watched the Pope's funeral were from interfaith religions. There were others from the political and secular population. God Bless Everyone!

If you have an opportunity to watch the Popeís funeral, please do. Itís pretty cool. The readings were done in Spanish and English. And, the gospel was done in Latin. The prayers of the faithful were done in Portuguese, Tagalog, and other languages. Again, if you have time, please watch the celebration. Take Care and God Bless!

Mahalo Pope John Paul II for your leadership by example. You led us to experience the power of love; forgiveness; and mercy. You showed us the value of life from conception to natural death. You gave purpose to Christians of all ages. You gave hope for our Church in the years to come; and you let us know that we all have an active role. Your passion in serving God's people was contagious; and our lives have been touched; our hearts are burning because we have experienced the goodness of God, especially through the beatifications and canonizations of every day people; people who are proof positive that no matter what our status in life, we can make a difference; and God-willing, we will make a difference in our communities. Mahalo Pope John Paul II - you have served God's people well!
