    Steve214 - indeed, but did he ask for our prayers because he recognized his failures in the adminstration & discipline of the Church, and even saw those failures as sins needing expiation? I rather doubt that. May he rest in peace in any event.

    JPII asked for our prayers before his death. Why? Because of his failure in the area of discipline. That does not need to be explained away, because God is truth.

    Your source perpetuates the myth that only Joseph Ratzinger challenged the innocence of Fr. Maciel. The fact is that the investigations into Maciel and Brother Gino began while Joseph Ratzinger was a cardinal prefect. He undoubtedly got the green light to proceed from the incumbent pope, John Paul the Great. In 2001, John Paul struck against abuse by putting Joseph Ratzinger in charge of its policing.
