"did not explain the circumstances under which John Paul had conveyed to him the change of his will regarding the burning of his notes."I tend to disagree with both of you ;-) I see no where it explained the holding back on burning what PJPII the Great asked to be disposed of.I have a HUGE issue with this, period. (I read Amy's blog - er, religiously :-))
JMJBiz, I agree with you that it is common Christian decency to carry out the wishes of a dying man. At a more fitting article, I would ask you to defend calling Pope John Paul II "the Great" - perhaps on his beatification process. It seems to me history will not judge our departed Holy Father kindly.
