The Pope died on Saturday evening, the first Saturday of the month, which is dedicated to the Blesed Mother. Liturgically it was already the beginning of the feast of the Divine Mercy, which is so appropriate because he was instrumental in establishing this feast. Also, Monday is the feast of the Annunciation, which was moved this year because March 25 was Good Friday. The Pope wrote that the Annunciation to Mary was the beginning of the New Covenant. He'll celebrate it in heaven!
