To Forgive

[ #24009 ]

I am not Catholic and don't have much to think or say about the Pope. But one of my favorite songs from the 80s is by the incomparable Steve Taylor, written on the occasion of the Pope's visiting in prison the man who tried to kill him.

The first verse went:

I saw a man
He was holding the hand
That had fired a gun at his heart
Oh, will we live
To forgive?

I saw the eyes
And the look of surprise
As he left an indelible mark
Oh, will we live
To forgive?

And that's how I am going to remember John Paul II.
