Q: Should Pope John Paul II be made a saint?

The church wants to speed up the cannonization – is this wise considering all the pedophilia cases that were covered up/ enabled by the church during his reign? Or is the coverup/enabling something that should be overlooked?

A: If the requirement for sainthood was physical perfection, the answer would be no.

But that is not the case.

Many of the greatest saints were clearly less than perfect, at some point in their life … some for MOST of their life.

Based on the remarkable life and accomplishments of the man, and the way he charitably applied his obvious spiritual and charismatic gifts for the benefit of the whole world, I would have to say … YES!

The act of forgiving his assassin is unparalleled in the annals of modern world history.

That alone should qualify him, in my opinion.
