For 26 years Pope John Paul II served as Pope. For many he was a man not only of God but a man of all men. His gentle smile and willingness to be among the people made him one of the most popular and recognized leaders in the world. After his death in 2005, many of his loyal followers asked that John Paul II be considered for Sainthood.

the Vatican may fast-track the late Pope's sainthood now that the medical committee of its Congregation for the Cause of Saints has confirmed John Paul's first miracle.
