The Pope will sign off on it, if and when it happens. If his Papal Decree requires your approval, doesn't that make you Pope?
As for JPII, the liberals take just the opposite view and call him an ogre who did his best to squelch the "reforms" in the Church. They hated him for Ecclesia Dei and his dogmatic pronouncement on women "priests". Some conservatives, on the other hand, think he wasn't Catholic enough.
So goes the fluctuating tide of human opinion.
>>Only those approved by you?<<
Where did I ever say that?

Everyone has friends and enemies. I don’t care at all about the opinions of people. I care about the good of The Church, which JPII neglected while he blended services with Holy Masses, allowed crap on altars at Papal Masses and “ministered” to non-Catholics while our pews were emptying from disgust.
I’m about as Catholic as you get, but I’m not blinded by the hype. He still ignored the problems with the gays in the priesthood while they took over. Destroying parishes and lives. Not for a year, not for five years, FOR nearly 20 years. We need to be realistic about it.
Where was he? He was praying. Well his job was to Shepherd as well as pray. Shepherd HIS flock. He neglected us. That is not the making of a saint.
