"Were we to fully realize what a priest is on earth, we would die: not of fright, but of love … Without the priest, the passion and death of our Lord would be of no avail. It is the priest who continues the work of redemption on earth … What use would be a house filled with gold, were there no one to open its door? The priest holds the key to the treasures of heaven: it is he who opens the door: he is the steward of the good Lord; the administrator of his goods … The priest is not a priest for himself, he is a priest for you”. --THE CURÉ OF ARS

“The future starts today, not tomorrow.” -John Paul II

Gina dear one, this video of our dear pope was wonderful. Where ever you found it, bless you for sending it forward. It shows his human side so well as he was a masterpiece of our time. We all were so blessed to have him serve as the 'people pope' for all mankind. John Paul II was special to each one of us. We do glorify him.

Calling JPII "THE GREAT" most certainly fits him. He was absolutely inspirational--he lived his priesthood every second. I was blessed to cantor at my Parish the Sunday after he died. Whenever I cantor "Shepherd Me, O God" I see his face. Thank you so much for commenting, Judi, my dearest of friends!
