Carnival for Il Papa

(I'm keeping this post on top, see below for new content. And spread the word about the Carnival!)

I would like to make an appeal to all of St. Blogs that we have a carnival celebrating Pope John Paul II. I don't mean to in anyway replace the weekly Catholic Carnival that goes on. Rather, I ask for all of you out there to write about the personal impact this Pope has had on your life. Whether through his writings or seeing him in person, or being able to meet him, I know people all over the world have been touched by this man's witness.

If you have a blog, post your reflection there and send me the link at odragul[[at]]juno[[dot]]com. If you don't have a blog, feel free to email me and I'll post it here. On the octave of his passing (next Saturday), I'll post the links and the emailed contributions.

Remember to continue to keep the Pope's soul in your prayers. I personally believe he was a saint and went steaight to heaven, but since the Church can't confirm that for at least five years, I won't presume.

Also, please pray for the Cardinals of the Church as they prepare to elect the next Servant who will be seated on Peter's blessed chair.

Excellent idea about the carnival, Papa Lu. I'm thinking about mine.

Bill - I look forward to it
