Heaven Sent, Heaven Bound

Pope John Paul II is really suffering and in need of prayer right now.  I am not Catholic, but I have nothing but deep admiration for this man. He has been a fantastic Pope who will leave behind a legacy of being a peacemaker and bridge builder. He has certainly seen much in his lifetime and will be remembered kindly by the history books.

Pray for the Catholic church at large. Though it's slightly morbid to be speaking in these terms already, the Pope's death will certainly be a devastating blow to that denomination and they will need the prayers of their fellow saints everywhere. Pray that a strong, godly, humble leader emerges to take the position that will most certainly prove to be a hard act to follow.  The Catholic church needs revival and renewal. Especially the church in Italy. I can tell you that first hand.

Keep this dear leader and his flock in your prayers.
