Reading, listening ... and crying
I think it has finally hit me that Pope John Paul II has died. I am listening to my copy of the CD "Abba Pater" (which the Pope's Secretary, Archbishop Dziwisz, actually gave me), reading the Pope's Testament, and crying. The sadness is certainly from the passing of a man I revered and who has had such an important place in my life for almost my entire life. But, if I am totally honest, the sadness is also partly because I am not much like him.
