As the world mourns the death of Pope John Paul II, Italian authorities said they expect 2 million people to file through the Vatican and the surrounding streets of Rome in the coming days for his funeral on friday.


The church has lost its light! Though I am not a Christian, I believe in the religion since my childhood. I have deep appreciation for the pope's mission to bring peace to the world.He preached the ideal to which all humans should strive.He denounced communism, consumerism, capitalism and every kind of corruption in human soul. He has left an indelible mark in human history. He will be remembered as a political pope who stood for the rights of the victims of hate, war and oppression. He presented the person of Jesus to the entire world and made Jesus relevant. He was never afraid to say what he wanted to say. His loyalty was to God alone.John Paul believed in a faith that could move mountains and believed in miracles. We could only pray to god, may his soul rest in peace.
