Pray not for John Paul II, but for the church and the man who comes next
Now that Pope John Paul II has died, it is time to turn your prayers (if you'd been praying at all).
He has gone home and he is safe, and loved, and made whole now.
It's time to pray for the Catholic church, that the right decisions are made during the choosing of the new pope. It's a tough decision and my prayers are with them.
Pray for the man who will be coming next. He has a tough act to follow and a hard job to do. Pray that he has the strength and the faith to carry out his duties.
