HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, POPE JOHN PAUL II:
After Twenty-Five Years, He's Still Going and Refuses to Give Up...
...despite suffering from advanced Parkinson's Disease and other serious ailments.
Columnist Maggie Gallagher has a wonderful piece reflecting on John Paul's remarkable 25 years in the Chair of Peter. Also, the Vatican's own web site has special links celebrating Pope John Paul II's anniversary, including one for the Catholic faithful and other admirers to email their greetings to him.
Incidentally, the word through the Catholic e-grapevine is that the Holy Father has been trying to intervene on behalf of Terry Schindler-Schiavo. We pray that Judge Greer will heed the Pope's pleas to spare her after he rejected Gov. Jeb Bush's.
