On Pope John Paul’s death

Vatican City — Struggling to swallow and breathe, Pope John Paul II mumbled his final words weakly in Polish: “Let me go to the house of the Father.” Six hours later, the comatose pontiff died, the Vatican says.
It’s Sunday morning 6:30 a.m. as I write this. And it is a good time to say in the words of the dying Pope, “Let me go to the house of the Father.”
If you’re up early and happen to be reading this I hope you will avail yourself of the opportunity to attend the House of the Lord this morning where you can Glorify God and have your soul renewed. JB
