Keeping vigil for the Pope

After keeping vigil for Terri this week, now we're keeping vigil for the pope. Even to the end he's teaching us and giving an example of how to die, just as he gave an example of how to live.
Listening to the radio news and people calling in to speak about the pope, I am impressed by how much respect he has even from people of other faiths and those who may disagree with his teachings. One man said that we have to acknowledge that Pope John Paul is certainly one of the towering spiritual figures of the twentieth century, and this man was speaking as a non-practicing Catholic.
