If you like pope-books, for an eye-opener, get your fingers on Lucien Gregoire's The Vatican Murders:: The Life and Death of John Paul I a newly released biog of the Polish Pope's predecessor, the 33-day Pope. We've heard too much of his mysterious death, finally, the full and only Vatican uncensored record of the life of John Paul I: his childhood, seminary days, priesthood, bishop, cardinal, pope... dead pope - biography plus true crime: Gregoire proves the conspiracy that planned the great Vatican bank scandal was the same conspiracy that plotted the murder of John Paul I.

Perhaps John Cornwell hoped that the 'spirit' of the Council would give the impetus for greater change and Pope John Paul put his foot firmly on the brake to prevent liturgy and theology falling to pieces. To cause such chaos was not what the Council mandated. To comment on the Pope's political initiatives would smack of temerity but it is certain that he contributed to the fall of the Berlin Wall and more freedom in Poland. Catholics continue to hope that John Paul's wish that the Church 'breathe with two lungs' will come to fulfilment. Pope Francis evidently hopes for the same. Despite these criticisms I always enjoy John Cornwell's style and his courage to present a different point of view.
