On Saturday 2 April, at about 15:30 CEST, John Paul II spoke his final words, “Let me go to the house of the Father,” to his aides in his native Polish and fell into a coma about four hours later. He died in his private apartment, at 21:37 CEST (19:37 UTC), 46 days short of his 85th birthday. The mass of the vigil of the Second Sunday of Easter, that is, Divine Mercy Sunday … had just been celebrated at his bedside. (source)

    john paul 11 is one of the greatest Pope of all times. He showed the world the true meaning of being a true christian. Even he visited the person who shoot him, and forgive him..what a great example. Jesus did it too when he died on the cross. Forgiveness… its a great christian virtue..

    In nomine Patris et fillii et Spiritus Sancti.

    Venerable John Paul II was extra-ordinary in all his dealings with people created by the one God we served. I have never seen such a man of greater virtue in our time like him. Truely, he is an examplanary teacher of the gospel of CHRIST.
