Goodbye…

…to Pope John Paul II…though I am glad that he is now at home with Jesus. The world loved him and, quite frankly, the world needed him.

There’s not much more to say that hasn’t been said.

Oh, except for the best birthday card ever. This was sent to my Roman Catholic friend Orysia when we were in Oxford, from her (also Roman Catholic) father. The outside of the card said:”Happy Birthday from the Beatles!” The inside said:”You know, John Paul, George, and Ringo!” It had a picture of the Pope, George, and Ringo Starr.Somehow, I think the Pope would have appreciated it.
