“In every respect, he was a giant of a man,” the Diocese of The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Island said of Bishop Eldon in a statement released shortly after his death.
He was loved and highly res ...

Letter: Pope John Paul II was a model witness to the life of Christ

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Pope John Paul II, a man of deep faith, will one day be proclaimed a saint by the Catholic Church. The Holy Father was an inspiration and a model witness to the life of Christ; a Shepherd of Truth immersed in profound humility and immense love for both God and man.

His many writings and tireless, world-wide pilgrimages of faith have been a source of strength, encouragement, confidence, optimism and enlightenment not only to Catholics, but to all men of good will.

A champion of the poor and ardent exponent of Christian unity, the Polish Pontiff was in many and such capacities as teaching, governing and sanctifying, both a beacon of light and salt of the earth.
