I still get chills when I see that Statue of Alexander VI outside the Sistene Chapel, the one of him Dunking on Martin Luther with the caption ""Tum scio vere et manifeste protestans me perfectionem. Stetit coram nobis imminet terræ, ab omni opere suo, sicut leges artis, et nesciebam, sicut patet profecto et illa vita non est opus artis, et tempus durare non posset. "

John the XXIII? Sure, he called Vatican 2: Electric Boogaloo; but, he really didn't do much else. And it took another pope to finsh it.

John Paul II, single handly, broke communisum's hold on Poland.

Well, Lech Walesa helped a skosh, as did the fundamnetal insupportability of the Soviet economic model in a rapidly globalizing economy...

I do find it funnt that TFA seems to think JP II was a "conservative" pope.  Towards the end of this life he did seem to drift right ward (I suspect a combo of advancing age, declining faculties and  Cardinal Ratso whispering in his ear like Grimma Wormtongue frankly), but on balance he was as revolutionary a Pope as John XXIII, and completely modernized and tranformed the very idea of the papacy, and excommunicated the uber-tradionlist Lefeverbist bishops that Pope Benny tried to rehabilitate until one of them started spouting neo-nazi holocaust denial crap.

Wotyla was one of the young theologians who wrote alot of the Vatican II documents.  With Ratzinger.  About 3 years before his death, we in our parish were hearing from a friend in Rome that JPII had no idea what he was signing at any given time and was so out of it, he just relied on the Curia to tell him what to say.  He didn't "get it", what he was saying, he didn't understand any more, but he would say it.

I think this is why Ratzinger resigned instead - he didn't want to become a sock puppet.

I will allow, JP2 did have some help from the infeasibility of the soviet model.

I agree that during his last years; JP2 wasn't in possession of his mental faculties, although I'm not sure cardinal Ratzinger was the puppet master.

It would have had to have been someone very close to JP2; by definition, someone who had contact with him everyday.

Say what you will about Benedict XVI; at least he had the presence of mind to retire before he went completely senile.

Its roughly the latin translation of what is inscribed on the Michael Jordan statute outside the United Center:

:
"At that moment I knew, surely and clearly, that I was witnessing perfection. He stood before us, suspended above the earth, free from all its laws like a work of art, and I knew, just as surely and clearly, that life is not a work of art, and that the moment could not last."

some folk might thing the evidence being used for recent saint nominations is kinda slim.
but in the past it was all   National Enquire and World Net Daily article stuff.
behold the 200 years dead remains placed on Prince Carlos as ordered by his dad to fix a blunt trauma to his head.  Nothing to do with the Trephing and removal of the bone fragments by a living physician who was later executed by the inquisition, nope, corpse credited and cannonized.

Saints aren't technically "made", it's a formal recognition that some particular person has made it into Heaven.  That's why the miracles are usually required.  It is considered evidence that they are able to intercede for us with  God and ask for "divine favors", which is by extension considered evidence that they are obviously in heaven and not sitting on molten pile of sulphur being poked in the ass by demons.
