I kept vigil in my bed last night knowing he would die on First Saturday, straight into our Mother's arms.
I kept the TV in mute and fell into a shallow sleep, every so often opening my eyes to see an update.
At past 4 am I woke up to see he had died at 9:37pm Vatican time, 3:37 am our time.
Jeroen opened his eyes at 4:15.
I told him and he went back to sleep.
This morning homaygess pointed out that the Pope died on First Saturday their time and Divine Mercy Sunday our time.
Thank you for reminding me to go to mass, confession and communion today.
Yesterday morning Jeroen and I heard on CNN on separate occasions that the Pope had seen Jesus on his death bed and was able to touch him.
His last word was "Amen" after making the sign of the cross.
I'm sure Somebody had come to pick him up.
