A John Paul II Beatification Catechism - George Weigel - National Review Online

An answer from the man who knew Pope John Paul II better than just about anyone else... his biographer, George Weigel, to those who are condemning JPII's beatification. NOTE: A beatification is NOT a declaration of 'sainthood'. It is the first step in the process that can lead to that outcome.

  1. At some point the buck must stop somewhere in any organization and in this case it should stop at the top.

    Whether or not Pope John Paul II had a hand in the cover-up either by commission or omission we'll probably never know, but imagine the powerful message it would send the world about how seriously the Church now treats this cover-up scandal if it did not canonize the previous pope over this failure during his watch. It would go a long way, albeit only symbolically, to show the world that the Church is now treating this black mark on its history seriously.
