Pope John Paul II worked harder than any of his predecessors to mend rifts between Roman Catholics and Protestants. I think very few Catholics would dispute that there was a great deal of corruption in the Catholic Church that lead to the Reformation. The Pope sought to clarify that all Christians achieve salvation through faith in the Lord. Christianity is under a massive assault from the left and the Pope was very vocal in his teachings that morality is a "black and white" matter.
