  • during his 27 years as Pope John Paul, the second canonized so many people that some dubbed the Vatican the ST Factory.

  • Nearly 500 saints were canonized under his watch, compared to 300 in the previous 600 years.

  • But now his own legacy is under question.

  • Some Catholics are asking if declaring him a saint in 2014 may have Bean too hasty.

  • Reuters Vatican correspondent Philip Poole Ella has been following the story.

  • John Paul's beatification Cause of canonization cause was controversial from the start.

  • If a pope is declared a saint and then many years later, or even a few years later, information comes out that would doubt the original process.

  • Things could shake the faith of people you know the church's ability to deal with These things seem to make these declarations.

  • For John Paul the second, that information seems to have arrived in the form of Theodore McCarrick.

  • He was a star of the U.

  • S.

  • Church, who was expelled from the priesthood last year after an internal investigation found him guilty of sexual abuses of minors and adults and abuse of power.

  • John Paul promoted McCarrick in 2000 to be archbishop of Washington, D.

  • C.

  • Despite persistent rumors of sexual misconduct.

  • Last week, the Vatican issued a report on the X cardinal, which has raised questions once again on John Paul's sainthood.

  • McCarrick report again raised the possibility that John Paul had turned a blind eye to reports off sexual abuse.

  • On Dis is the same thing that that surfaced when he became a saint in 2014.

  • Even before the McCarrick report, the debate cuts to the heart of how sainthood works and how fast it should move.

  • In modern times.

  • In the early church, people were just declared saints by acclamation.

  • So essentially the people when when someone died, the community decided that this person was a very holy person and just was declared a saint.

  • Then, in the Middle Ages, there was trafficking and fake relics and things like that.

  • So anyway, it was institutionalized later with with the process that lasted for centuries, the process of sainthood is rigorous and originally could not start until 50 years after a person's death.

  • But John Paul cut it to five years and permitted fast track exceptions when his successor, Pope Benedict the 16th, was elected in 2005, He waived the rule allowing John Paul's cause to start only weeks after he died.

  • As a result, he was declared a saint just nine years later.

  • If you consider that sometimes canonization process take decades on centuries, um, this took this took only nine years.

  • That said, We're living in modern times where is much, much easier to gather information.

  • So everything's move Ah, a lot faster than they did before.
