    The Catholic church is really f….k up & becoming more pagan & ritualistic by the century. Digging up the body of Pope John Paul. Why did they bother to bury him? Let the man RIP & do your thing without him as God sees & knows all.

    IT IS SUCH AN HONOR TO HAVE LIVED WHEN POPE JOHNII WALKED THIS EARTH. HE WILL TRULY BE REMEMBER BY THE FAITHFUL AND THIS STATUE WILL ATTEST TO HIS GOOD WORKS.
