John Paul to be Beatified this Fall?

According The Times the late Pope John Paul could be a Saint within 18 months...

From The Sunday Times:

This weekend the cardinal in charge of the process said he expected the
checks performed by the local dioceses on all three miracles to be complete by
April. A formal announcement is expected on April 2, the second anniversary of
John Paul's death, and senior Vatican sources expect him to be declared a saint
within 18 months.

  1. I think this is rushing things. JPII was a great man but why not wait at least 10 years, in order to assess him more objectively, before cannonising him? If he is in heaven he is a saint already surely we can wait for the formal announcement.
