The problem, however, is that the late Pope unfortunately performed a number of actions that were scandalous in the sense of causing the Catholic faithful to stumble in their faith. If John Paul II is canonised then the Church will appear to give its approbation to actions such as his participation in a Voodoo ceremony. If he is canonised then the ecclesia docens owes the ecclesia discens a clear explanation of the Church's position on this problematic (to say the least) action of the late Pope.

The Church, (New Church) certainly does give its approbation to actions such as his participation in a Voodoo ceremony, if it were not the case, certainly there would be no case for making him a saint.

That is why he may end up being a NO saint - after all, that is the faith he promulgated and it is for that faith that he hopes  to be made a saint from- no?

By pre-NO Catholic standards, based on his public actions, there is no question that he would not even be considered a candidate for sainthood.

That's just the way it is.
