Many of you may know that on Saturday at approximately 19:37 GMT Pope John Paul II died in his private apartment at the Vatican. He was suffering with heart kidney problems.

The news was met with long applause, an Italian sign of respect, followed by several minutes of silence as the crowd took in the news. A BBC news reporter stated everyone stood in groups comforting each other in ST Peters Square.

Below is the popes life as we know it..

[*]1920 - Born near Krakow, Poland grin
[*]1964 - Archbishop of Krakow smile
[*]1978 - Elected first non-Italian Pope for 450 years shocked
[*]1981 - Assassination attempt mad
[*]2002 - Final visit to homeland cool
[*]2005 - Deceased. frown

Could you all please sign your name and/or nickname on the forum as a sign of respect to the late Pope.

Thank you.

All the best,

-Andy.

i bet anyone who signs here didn't give a toss about him before he died. And now that hes dead everyones oh so sad. Funny how that works isn't it?

Anyway, i tip my hat to the dead.

As an interesting side note, in the time its taken me to write this, approx 324 people world wide have died, wheres your bleeding heart for them? (source)

Well some on here probably wont actually know what a difference he made to the world, but when someone dies it sincerely is a shame. And I hope that he has gone to a better place where he'll suffer no more. smile

you mean like denouncing the use of condoms to prevent aids. Yup, he made a difference there. Probably caused a few thousands deaths cuz of that one. What a nice fella [Edit: altho to be honest its not entirely his fault, its his f**ked up religion thats the problem there, but don't you think that preventing something that i believe will one day wipe out the human race is more important than saving some sperm going down the toilet instead of dying inside a uterus? Bah, gone totally offtopic, but you know what i mean. Religion in my eyes is evil, so he is the embodiment of all that is evil to me]
(to save making another post: lol @ davec below)

grin I'm not even Catholic. :tongue: I just think he's a cool guy and he deserves alot of respect. I'm sure everyone of any religion would agree with me on that one. By the way Danthemandoo, that was totally rude. Like they say, if you don't have anything nice to say, dont say anything. Although i don't always go by that one :tongue:, I think it applies in this case. Talk trash somewhere else dude. I'd hate to see this turn into a religious debate. That would get pretty nasty.

If you meant the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) rather than the BCC, then I'll be pleased to tell you that they did explain the significance of the clapping.

Should I mention that the Vatican is not in Italy? or is that geography snippet too confusing for here?

Actually, the Vatican IS in Italy, in the heart of Rome itself.

Geographically The Vatican is located in Italy, however, it is not considered to be part of Italy.
