Was reading an article, Mourning World Gets First Glimpse of Pope, and was rather struck by this assertion:

The pope died very serenely Saturday evening, "like Jesus," he said.

Um. I may be wrong about this, but I thought being crucified was a particularly painful way to die. I seem to recall the agony Christ went through as being rather central to many people's theologies.
