Rest in Peace Pope John Paul II

On this holy Sunday, no doubt there will be millions mourning over the death of the Pope, the leader of the largest religious group on the planet.
As well as being the third longest serving pontiff, he has created 477 saints and beatified (a public religious honor) a further 1,318 including Mother Theresa.
He has also travelled more, spoken more and published more than any of his predecessors.
He died in the Vatican on April 2nd, 8.37pm GMT, aged 84.
