In Memoriam: John Paul II

Karol Józef Wojtyła, Pope John Paul II, died four years ago yesterday. The picture on the left is a photograph of Wojtyła's inauguration on 22 October, 1978, less than two months after the beginning of the pontificate of John Paul I. The picture on the right is a well-known photograph from Gabriel Bouys, in my mind one of the most striking images of the late pontiff.
