I was sad to read this. It has been reported that the pope has recieved his last rights.
I pray that he recovers.
I don't know what else to say. I know that I am not the most loyal member to the church, but I still hold great respect for him. The only way I could explain his position to those not of the Catholic faith is that he is a father figure that all look up to in the church.
I feel wierd writing this since I know there are very few Catholics who come here. Still, I wanted those who might have missed the news to know.
