Seven years ago today Pope John Paul the Great passed away left this life for another. I am so blessed to have lived during the lifetime of this incredible man. I am so blessed to have been able to witness his last agony when I lived in Rome, he showed the young people of the world how to grow old and die with dignity and grace.

He told us: “I have searched for you, and now you have come to me, and I thank you.” And we did, we flocked to him like sheep that know their shepherd.
