John Paul II


 A Tribute to John Paul II
As the Catholic world eagerly anticipates the much-discussed beatification of the late Pope John Paul II, the Vatican has launched a high-tech and interactive tribute website in the late Pontiff's honor. The website is well-done and reflects the Vatican's continued efforts to engage the world in a digital age.

 Abuse crisis fuels debate over John Paul IIs legacy
John Paul II was a rock star of a pope, arguably the most effective ambassador of religious belief in a highly secular age. Yet in the years since his death in April 2005 an undercurrent of doubt and concern has emerged related to his handling of the problem of priestly sex abuse, the most serious crisis to rock Catholicism in centuries.

 Building Block
The Vatican's decision to speed Pope John Paul II on the road to sainthood aroused great elation—and a backlash among Catholics who see the rush as unseemly. There is an obvious remedy that could bring contending Catholics together and send exactly the right message about the church's attitude toward the modern world: It's time to declare Pope John XXIII a saint.
