It's the end of a Papal era.
Pope John Paul has died at age 84.
The Vatican announced the pope's death in an e-mail which stated "the Holy Father died this evening at 9:37 p.m. in his private apartment.'' The announcement came from papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls.
A Mass is scheduled for St. Peter's Square Sunday morning.
The pope died after suffering heart and kidney failure following
2 hospitalizations in as many months.
John Paul led the Roman Catholic Church for more than a quarter
century and was history's most-traveled Pope.
