"At church on Sunday the congregation was asked to pray for the recovery of the pope. I have abstained from doing so. I hope that he will not recover."
"So, what is wrong with praying for his death? For relief from his manifest sufferings? And for the opportunity to pay honor to his legacy by turning to the responsibility of electing a successor to get on with John Paul's work?"
The Pope will live as long as HIS CREATOR WILLS! And HE will show to all the world the strength and courage one can receive even in an infirm state. HE always provides and will continue to show HIS work through his shepherd Our Holy Father John Paul II.
Prayers are needed for Mr. Buckley and all those that hold this viewpoint.
God have mercy!
