The whole world wept.
At the funeral of this extraordinary 'Servant of the Servants of God' the faithful shouted and carried signs. Both expressed the same "sense of the faithful", "Santo Subito" - a saint immediately.
His beloved friend Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakowwho co-authored the touching book “Let Me Go to the Father's House: John Paul II's Strength in Weakness”, told reporters that the process of beatification would be over soon. His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI has also indicated his desire to conclude the rigorous process soon because that “is what the world is asking for.”
The reliable Polish Daily report indicates that the Congregation for the Cause of the Saints has already concluded the process. It began by special dispensation on June 28, 2005, a mere two months after John Paul's death rather than the standard five years. The "sense of the faithful" concerning the sanctity of the late Pope is clear. The miracles attributed to his intercession are multiple.
The Polish newspaper was not the only print source to make this claim of a pending beatification. The Italian Daily “La Stampa”, another reliable source, in an article written by Giacomo Galeazzi, carried a similar report. It indicated that the position paper has already been forwarded by the theologians who carefully examined the life, message and alleged miracles.Msgr. Tadeusz Pieronek is the polish priest who served as the postulator for the cause of the late pope at the Diocesan level. He commented to La Stampa, “This is very good news”.
Indeed it is! April 2, 2010, five years after the Servant of God John Paul II went to His Father’s House, the world may once again pause to remember a life well lived and a death that opened the portal of heaven to the eyes of a watching world.
