The Legacy of John Paul II
(Please I want all to observe some minute's silence for the late JOHN PAUL II for a remarkable and memorable twenty-six-papacy reign)
Death do not be proud
JOHN DANNE POET
Death is in evitable, goes the saying of old. An analytical look at the creation of man, (women inclusive), makes me come to the conclusion that dust shall all (no exemption, including myself) return, a "must" happen someday, one day, whichever.
I asked my lovely friend, the meaning of DEATH. And it said, "the end of life". I really do not understand. I asked him again, this time around, what is LIFE? Replying, it said " the period between birth and death". Not confused and convinced, I said to myself, is it true that JOHN PAUL II life have actually ended? (It's up to you to decide)
And death shall have no dominion.
And death shall have no dominion.
And death shall no dominion.
Thoughts after thoughts came through my mind. Thoughts of the late John Paul II quotes as regard various sectors of a nation, which is known in business management as PEST.
Among the quotes are:
"however, this progress not infrequently presents serious problems in relation to respect of human life and the dignity of the person"
"the profit motive, even when legitimate, cannot be the principal or even the exclusive motive of business or commercial activity, as such an activity much keep in mind the human factors and is subordinated to the moral exigencies proper to all human action"
"truth and solidarity are two of the most efficacious means available for overcoming hatred, resolving conflict and eliminating violence"
That's not all. As history holds, he is the only pontiff that asked for forgiveness, when he said, "let us forgive and ask for forgiveness". Still preaching on his forgiveness message, he said, "our forgiveness should be motivated only by the love of God and our belief in his unsurpassed mercy". Siting the Holy Bible, in Ezekiel 36 vs. 24-27, he said, "God's forgiveness can transform the stony heart of every human being into a natural heart".
He urges all Christians and non-Christians alike "keeping the Lord as the stronghold of one's life through personal and communal prayer assures victor for the believer in the time of trial"
Catholics around the globe, the late John Paul II have this for you all " let us feel ourselves more united than ever in reciting the holy rosary in a particular way for families and for peace in the world", the virgin, is the first and principal teacher of Christian prayer... in her school, one learn to contemplate the face of the Lord, to assimilate his sentiments and accepts his values with generous consistency.
The late John Paul II changed the Roman Catholic to a truly global church by embracing justice and peace with his papacy first comment "be not afraid". The world will remember him for his remarkable intellect, energy and enormous power for the true flame of freedom for the past twenty-six years and in time to come.
I implore all to always pray for the late John Paul II in our personal prayers.
