The Holy Father is dying.
He knows it himself. He has prayed the Stations of the Cross and the third hour of the Divine Office, both of which focus on the final journey and death of Christ.
May his final painful journey take him to the Cross of Calvary, and when he bows his head and it is finished, may he be welcomed by Christ into the Kingdom as His true and faithful servant. As we celebrate this Octave of Easter, may John Paul share in the glory of his Master's Resurrection.
