One year ago today...

I can't believe it's already been a year... a year since Pope John Paul II died. His death affected me more than I could ever imagine. I loved him, of course -- he was elected Pope when I was 11 yrs old, so I basically "grew up" with him -- but I had no idea how upset I would be when he died.

I sobbed.

I cried like I had lost my grandfather.

I felt such a loss, and yet I was at peace knowing that our beloved Pope was in Heaven with the Lord. I can only imagine the huge homecoming he received!

Pope John Paul II, pray for us.
