Death of the High priest

A dear friend asked me whether I recognized the death of John Paul II as the death the High Priest. Margaret Barker, in one of her writings, mentioned that when a person is installed as a bishop in the Greek Orthodox Church, he is also installed in a separate ceremony as a high priest. So I cannot say that the thought has never occurred to me. It however is still a strange thought for me to contemplate.

John Paul II was a truly unusual man. May he rest in peace.
