(April 2, 2005) -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver have issued the following statement on the death of Pope John Paul II:
Maria and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Pope John Paul II. He was an extraordinary Pope and a profoundly deep and spiritual man who lived his life on thisearth in a truly noble and exemplary way. As Catholics we admired his leadership. The standard he set for all human beings was to be compassionate, ethical and understanding of all religious faiths.
We had the great honor to meet His Holiness in Rome many years ago. It remains a highlight of our lives. In a world of challenges, Pope John Paul II was a beacon of virtue, strength and goodness.
He was a hugely popular Pope, welcomed in every part of the world where he traveled. He had a deep intellect, and was a prolific writer, an avid sportsman, who never stopped learning and striving to be a beacon of moral strength.
He took his message around the world and touched millions. He will be forever remembered for the truly remarkable way he lived his life and led his church.
