‘AP’ report of Postulator (i.e., Saint-Maker), Slawomir Oder, claim that John Paul II was ignorant of reprobate Marcial Maciel horrendous sex crimes. Click to access full coverage from ABC News.
This is from none other than the highly respected, and very Catholic, ‘National Catholic Reporter’. Yes, in the picture the pope looks like he wouldn’t know his own name. But he and Marcial were the best of buddies. Click for NCR original.
Good, incisive article, from yesterday, in the ‘Latin Times’. Click to access.
Just Google. The Web is chocka full of stories about John Paul II and his involvement in the clerical sex abuse crimes.
He was never and never will be a Saint! That is not a crime. All popes are NOT Saints, by definition.
Not so, however, when it comes to the other pope being canonized on Sunday, April 27, 2014. Bl. Pope John XXIII was a living Saint. Two very different popes. Shame that he is getting overlooked in favor of the unsaintly Saint.
