Go Rest High On That Mountain

Pope John Paul II has passed.

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. There is no doubt, he was an instrumental part of the fall of the Soviet Union.

Regardless of your opinions of church doctrine or politics, you have to admit that were it not for his involvement with the Solidarity Movement in Poland before the fall of the Soviet Union, Poland would have remained firmly entrenched in communism far longer than it did.

He is gone. God rest his soul. We now pray for God to watch over the College of Cardinals and guide them to select a worthy successor to the throne of St. Peter.

I can think of no greater tribute than to say, (with the possible exception of his position regarding Priests and their abuse of the children in their charge) he represented all that was good and decent about Christianity.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So,Go rest high on that mountain
Son your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son!
~~~~~~~~~~~~


Hear the song -- Go Rest High On That Mountain .
