ROME - The process to beatify
Pope John Paul II officially opens Tuesday with a solemn ceremony in which all the clerics involved take an oath of secrecy and promise not to accept any gifts that might sway their decisions.
But even before that opening ritual, it seemed that virtually all the key players were in favor of sainthood for the late pope, including the official whose job it is to play "devil's advocate," the one who investigates any doubts about John Paul's saintliness.
