Karol Wojtyla

Catholics, non-Catholics, and even atheists liked and admired Pope John Paul II, and together are mourning his passing. Few Popes have had more influence, few have had more devotion to duty, and none have been as constant and unflagging in the service of good works. John Paul II was a uniter: he reached out to other peoples and to other faiths. He was a tireless traveler and a great diplomat. Ungrudgingly and unstintingly, those of us who are not Catholics can say that this was a great man who did good in the world. These next weeks and months will be fascinating, but not enough to overshadow our regret.
