Fox News: Obituary of Pope John Paul II

Topics: Faith

From Fox News comes this secularized brushstroke of an obituary for Pope John Paul II. But I don't think it comes close to providing a proper perspective of the life of this great man, the Pope of all people, and who I believe to be the greatest advocate in modern history for reconciliation among Christians and Jews.

A tireless and outspoken campaigner for world peace and humanitarian causes, Pope John Paul II was the most traveled pontiff in history, criss-crossing the globe on missions that were often as political as they were religious.

In his overseas journeys, the pope visited communist Cuba, Muslim Syria, India and war-torn Bosnia. A native of Poland, he played a crucial role in the downfall of communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.

In the most significant papal trip, John Paul II became the first pope in history to officially visit Israel when he fulfilled a lifelong dream to tour the Holy Land and walk in the steps of Jesus Christ.

Bishop Lynch is trying to have it "both ways." Michael's "fiancee" is Catholic and presumably they will be getting married in Bishop Lynch's diocese so he has to appear that he didn't oppose "how" Michael became a widower!!! Also, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Michael and Jodi's kids have already been baptized in one of the bishop's parishes.
