John Paul II's "heroic virtue" under scrutiny... SANTO SUBITO!

A large report on the "heroic virtue" of John Paul II is coming out for review soon, Vatican sources say. This shouldn't be tough, as it is 2,000 pages!

The church official spearheading the cause to make Pope John Paul II a saint said Monday he has finished a roughly 2,000-page draft of a report supporting the late pontiff's canonization.

Two days before the Vatican marks the third anniversary of John Paul's death, Monsignor Slawomir Oder told Vatican Radio that he has turned over the report to the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

The report summarizes and analyzes all the documentation about John Paul's life and virtues that had been gathered since his 2005 death, including testimony from witnesses and his own writings.
