Very well-worth reading. The new name fit John Paul’s larger-than-life presence. He was, in one iconic description, the “spark that flew forth from Poland to set fire to the whole world.” He rallied huge crow… Reply Lucy May 13, 2005 - 2:30 pm God has a plan. Thank you. A sigh of relief came at the name Ratzinger, lessening the loss of JPII.( Sigh again.) Reply Ashton Vaz May 13, 2005 - 8:25 pm Thanks for the link. Excellent article! Never realized how Ratzinger’s past helped shape him the same way JPII’s did! Reply Teresa May 13, 2005 - 10:49 pm I know the pope is the defender of our faith and we’re under his protection, but I feel very protective of him too. I know I’m a sap, but I’d love for him to get the word that many people in America love him too and understand what it is he’s defended all these years. I hope he comes over so we get the chance. Reply Suzanne May 14, 2005 - 10:12 am Hello, I am new to this site. I love it and thank you, Jeff and God for it. I have read somewhere where JPII was the “love” Pope and gathered and drew every one around. The church grew under his leadership. Now we have the “truth” Pope who will lead us even more powerfully. Of course, both Popes are about truth and love, but their different, underlying strengths are exactly what we have needed during their individual reigns.
