Also, today is the Beatification of Pope John Paul II. This has caused some controversy because some people think he did not take action in the light of the scandal. However, there is one thing people need to understand, being a saint does not mean one was perfect while on earth. John Paul II grieved when he learned what was going on and tried to take action. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem that all of the bishops and cardinals took heed of his command.
John Paul II was a great man and he is a role model. I think all popes in the future will be compared to JPII who it seems has set a new standard.
Blessed John Paul the Great, Pray for Us!
