.- Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, Archbishop of Krakow and former personal secretary to Pope John Paul II, has called upon faithful to be patient regarding the beatification process of the late Pontiff, because “it is better to wait and do things right.”

“What we want is the beatification process to take place without rushing, with depth, so that nobody later can accuse us of not working carefully,” he said in statements to the Polish news agency PAP.

Likewise, although the faithful desire his prompt elevation to the altars, the cardinal explained the long process would be beneficial because it would underscore “the charismatic figure of the Holy Father.”

Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, who was at the Vatican for commemorations of the first anniversary of John Paul II’s passing, said, “The world is rediscovering John Paul II and is seeking to better understand him.”

“The anniversary commemorations showed that the world is grateful to Benedict XVI for looking after the memory and love for his predecessor,” he said.
