The priest leading the late Pope John Paul II's sainthood campaign has called on Roman Catholics to use the internet to send any information on the life and virtues of the pontiff that could help his case, Vatican Radio says.
An official website will publish the testimony sent by regular mail or email to Slawomir Oder, the Polish priest in charge of the beatification process.
The information will be filed under several categories such as "my meeting with John Paul II" or "blessings received" with the pope's intercession, the radio said on Monday.
Pope John Paul's beatification file already contains 635 documents, including the first writings of John Paul II "that bear witness to his concern for the Church, his human spirit, the role of laymen in the Church and the saintliness of the Christian life," said Vatican Radio.
One main reason, the Catholic Church is encrusted with tradition. Also, when you're going to do something wrong, you what all the company you can get to validate your actions! ;-)
I was hoping defined something on the Ian Paisley site, on this particular topic, but didn't find anything on this one -- lot of other interesting stuff though,
Too bad the Vatican did look at the website set up by Catholics tried to persuade Pope John Paul II not to canonize the founder of Opus Dei. Of course now that he has been made a Catholic Saint, that website is no longer there.
The Catholic Church, or even more accurately, Pope Benedict XVI does not want people to examine the behavior of Pope John Paul II when he was in office. The number and qualities of many of the people Pope John Paul II made Catholic Saints, makes it obvious he didn't know what a Christian was.
Pope Benedict XVI, had set many of the policies of Pope John Paul II, and no doubt he wants affirmation of this. Catholic should read this little pamphlet.
