Pope John Paul II sainthood is too much too soon

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Albert Maslar Monday, July 08, 2013 03:09 pm

To the editor:

Pope Francis XXIII recently announced that Pope John Paul II is to be declared a saint. I for one do not agree to two things; the rush to judgment or the rush to sainthood for Pope John Paul II.

Everyone who passes from this life in the good graces of God is a saint. So why the rush to sainthood for Pope Paul II? I firmly believe that this rush is short-sighted because Pope John Paul II was held in much esteem, receiving earthly accolades and honors, which even Jesus Christ did not want or receive.
