Pope John Paul II died on Saturday at the age of 84.

He was known as the People's Pope, an indication of how popular he was among the masses.

During his 26 years as the religious head of  1.1 billion Catholics, he had travelled to over 120 countries, interacting with people of different ethnicities and different religions. He was especially popular among the young.

Did you ever get an opportunity to interact with the Pope?

Were you blessed by him personally?
