"This special podcast is dedicated to the events surrounding the death of pope John Paul II in the evening of April 2, 2005. You will hear how the bells of Rome announce the death of the pope, and I will take you to Saint Peter's Square where we will experience the emotions of the crowd gathered there in prayer and grief." ~~Father Roderick Vonhögen, catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Utrecht, The NetherlandsApril 2, 2005 - The Night the Pope Died (mp3)
Tuesday, April 05, 2005
Father Roderick rides his bicycle to Saint Peter's Square where the Rosary Prayer had just finished being prayed by the people, when the great Pope John Paul died. Bells begin to be heard as the priest tells us that soon bells all over Rome will be ringing out his death, and then bells will be heard all over the entire world.
