Goodbye, dear friend. Take care out there. The road is wild and bandits roam. The path is long, so please beware, Along the streets that lead to Rome. Please take some time to rest awhile And eat good bread and sweet red wine. Protect yourself from foes hostile With sharpened sword and faith divine. And once at home within your church Please kneel again at altar mat In prayer to God and steadfast search For truth and honest habitat.
Pope Hilarius, Sardinian Pope, died today in 468.
Ruth Pitter, English pope, died today in 1992.
