It's clear that John Paul should be considered the Great.... He had done a lot for the world, he improved Muslim-Christian relations, Jewish-Christian relations, Orthodox-Christian relations and not to mention him being instrumental in helping destroy communism.... I think that qualifies IMO as him being considered "the Great"
i am ready to sign this statement as great truth about officialy first Slavic Pope
just to add
In Serbian history would stay remembered fact that Pope John Paul II was double crossed by Croatian Catholics, German leadership and then complete NATO and governments of so called west. Only Paul’s mistake in his brilliant career as Pope was when he allowed that Vatican joins to Germany in recognition of Croatian separation from Yugoslavia before political process was finished.
Pope John Paul was double crossed. South Slavs pushed in bloody Civil War. Catholic and some Orthodox Serbs given in hands of Croatian nation. Majority of Orthodox Serbs offered to mujaheedine beasts.
