3 / 8
Those who believe are never alone – neither in life nor in death. At that moment [of JPII's death], we could call upon the Saints from every age – his friends, his brothers and sisters in the faith – knowing that they would form a living procession to accompany him into the next world, into the glory of God. We knew that his arrival was awaited. Now we know that he is among his own and is truly at home. ~Benedict XVI, April 24, 2005
