Pope's Assailant to be Freed

Pope John Paul ll's Assailant will soon be set free, as early as tomorrow! The Turkish courts ruled he had completed his sentenced.

Updated: His assailant has been re-arrested and will remain in prison until January 18, 2010.

The Holy See's response: “The Holy See has learned only from news agencies of the news of the possible freedom of Ali Agca,” [A Vatican Spokesman] said in a brief statement. “The Holy See, before a problem of a judicial nature, submits to the decisions of the tribunals involved in this matter.” (Read MSNBC for more information)

Opinion: I certainly hope he is a changed man. But, as John Paul ll showed us, we all must forgive. As pope, he forgave this man for his offense, and I say that we should also forgive. May God forgive Him and lead Him to perfect unity in Christ.
