I think they should respect the tradition. I don’t think he would have asked for this to be done.
For what to be done?
I agree. I don’t particularly like JPII - he had almost 30 years to bring the Church out of destruction wrought by VII, and he really didn’t do much until he got so weak that Ratzinger could start cleaning things out behind the scenes. He appointed weak or even bad bishops and largely ignored the sexual abuse scandals until ver late.
I’ve always thought JPII was very media driven and just wanted to be liked.
HOWEVER, all that said, he was regarded as conservative by many people and his travels made a big impact. So who knows?
I wouldn’t cultivate a personal devotion to him myself, but the Church has clearly decided that the good outweighed the bad. That’s ok too.
