Father James Murphy led a noon time mass at Westminister church. "Let's pray for Pope John Paul that the Lord will hold him in his hand during this difficult time for all of us. So let's stand and pray"

Outside the church, parishioners expressed their thoughts: "I know he's going to a better place and he'll be through with suffering, so it's more happy than sad but I will miss him....I remember the pope when he went to my hometown in Mexico...We went to see him here when he went to Monterey, my husband and I, but we're happy we had him for the time we did."
