Including eyewitness account from Rome of John Paul II's death and funeral

"I have looked for you, you have come to me, and I thank you." —John Paul II, to the young people gathered in St. Peter's Square to pray for him the night before he died

John Paul II, We Love You! not only tells the stories of young people whose lives were touched by the pope, it also offers on-the-scene coverage from Rome of this well-loved pope's final decline, death and funeral.

Fr. Peter Mitchell, a priest of the JPII generation, happened to be in Rome during that time and felt called to share those unprecedented days with as many people as possible via e-mail. He became a "sleep-deprived, emotionally drained and physically exhausted scoop reporter" writing moving accounts that soon spread globally via the Internet.

The testimonies from young people—combined with Fr. Mitchell's vivid account of the pope's passing—attest to the life-changing impact of this great man on an entire generation of Catholics.
