Pope John Paul II seemed destined to become a saint from an early age. At a seminary in Krakow, Poland, where a young Karol Wojtyla studied to become a priest, his fellow seminarians were so touched by his piety and devotion to Christianity that they famously wrote on his dormitory room, perhaps jokingly, "future saint." Some critics claim the “rushed” canonization of the popular John Paul II is a sign the Catholic Church needs new icons to revamp its reputation, marred by years of scandals.
