Prayers for Pope John Paul II

It is clear that the Pope is nearing death, as people everywhere watch and pray.

How different the world is from the one in which John Paul II became Pope in 1979. For one thing, communism is gone -- thanks in no small part to his efforts, in conjunction with those of Ronald Reagan.

The Pope is a holy man of conviction. He is beloved not just by Catholics, whose Church he leads, but by Protestants, Jews and countless other people of other faiths who are admirers of his firm beliefs and personal courage.
