Awesome...Viva JP II
Apparently the Holy Father would run his decision by the communist government for approval before appointing a bishop back then. It turns out that he ran 6 other men by the communists, all of whom were rejected, and they thought Karol Wojtyla was a high minded academic who wouldn't cause any problems. The joke is on them, God had his way.
Just like a theater or football star. God and our Lady help us all
