VATICAN CITY -— A decision to put Pope John Paul II on the path to sainthood might come as soon as October, when bishops gather in Rome, a Vatican official was quoted today as saying.
Archbishop Edward Nowak, the Polish-born secretary of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, told Corriere della Sera that he didn't expect an immediate declaration of sainthood but that the process could begin as soon as the "proper documentation'' has been gathered.
"The Synod of Bishops gathers in Rome next October and that, for example, might be the right occasion for such a declaration,'' Nowak was quoted as saying.
