Pope John Paul II must be the Freddy Krueger for liberals. Just went they think he is on the outs and they are loading their stories with frail, ailing, sickly, and near death; the Pope still goes on. I can not express adequately my feelings for this dear man and how he has lead the church by his wonderful example so I will let scripture speak for itself.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, to show that the transcendent power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death is at work in us, but life in you –2 Cor 4:7
