The John Paul II wiki last edited by Mandarinestro on 09/07/14 06:22AM View full history

John Paul II (1920-2005, term 1978-2005) was the most iconic Pope to comics because of his long reign and his rockstar like life which required the creation of the popemoblie.

John Paul II was named Blessed by Pope Benedict on May 1, 2011. This puts him one step below sainthood. If a second miracle attributed to his intercession can be confirmed, then he can be elevated to sainthood. At this time there are several reported miraculous healings that have been submitted on his behalf, so many believe that it is only a matter of time before John Paul II is declared a saint. However, some Ultra-Traditionalist Catholics were not pleased when Pope Benedict named John Paul as Blessed. They feel that he bordered on heresy when he called together non-Catholic and non-Christian religious leaders to Assisi for prayer. They also believe that he erred when he visited a Mosque and kissed the Koran.
