The decree allows women to serve his readers at liturgies, altar servers and distributors of communion. And while in much of the Western world of women already do so, it's not the case everywhere. By making it official conservative bishops can no longer block women in their diocese from those roles. While not a radical shift, Michael.

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro, Pope John Paul. The second was one of the most beloved pope's in recent memory, but a recent report from the Vatican has cast him in a new light. A two year long investigation into how a disgraced American cardinal rose up the ranks despite allegations of sexual misconduct, lays the blame largely at the feet of John Paul. Now some Catholics are rethinking his legacy. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from Rome. When John Paul died in 2005 after a 26 year reign, His funeral drew millions to ST Peter's Square, chanting Santo Subito, making the Saint immediately put on the fast track. He became a saint, a record nine years later. Now many Catholics are asking Was that too hasty? The Vatican report shows that in 2000, John Paul appointed Theodore McCarrick, archbishop of Washington, despite repeated warnings about allegations of sexual misconduct. Papal biographer George Weigel was quick, however, to defend John Paul. There is no problem in saying a saint can be deceived. Saints or human beings, human beings can be deceived by pathological liars. And John pulls a second. Wallace Heidi Schlumpf, editor of the Liberal National Catholic Reporter, disagrees. Saints are not perfect, but they are models and I don't think John Paul. The second is a model of how our church should be dealing with clergy sex abuse. Following the McCarrick report, the publication called for the Suppression of the cult of Saint John Paul, the second Catholicism's that Schlumpf cult means the commemoration and veneration of a saint. Suppression would mean schools and churches should not be named after him, and devotion should be private. The editorial said. This man undermined the global churches witness shattered its credibility as an institution and set a deplorable example for bishops in ignoring the accounts of abuse victims. Massimo federally Villanova University professor of theology, says suppression of the cult is unlikely in the U. S. As an anti communist champion, he says John Paul's influence was vast, not on Lee among conservative American Catholics. Those Catholics that our middle of the road Because he was say. Larger than life were like person and he's he's Iker in his name mean here much more than two Catholics, you know the country's the character isn't the only sexual predator John Paul turned a blind eye to father Marcel Marcel, who abused numerous miners and father Children, was punished by the Vatican on Lee after John Paul's death. McCarrick report suggests John Paul's experience with the secret police and communist Poland may have convinced him that allegations of clerical sex abuse were fabricated to damage the Catholic Church. That may explain his blind spot and not believing the accusations, says Father Thomas Reese, senior analyst at Religion News Service But does not excuse it. John Paul, the second was incapable of believing That his friends and supporters could be involved in sexual abuse. He thought they were doing wonderful things for the church. And he just could not imagine that they could be doing such vile deeds. Catholic author Dawn. Even Goldstein still believes John Paul is a saint. I'm a Catholic theologian. And I personally believe that canonizations are infallible. But will she continue to pray to him? I have a lot of saints whose intercession I prefer to ask before I asked John Paul's Nowhere has the criticism of John Paul's legacy hit so hard as in his native Poland.

She looks inside you cut your finger and finds a packet with a dozen photos each of a different woman and becomes intrigued what she discovered about those women and the woman whose name Trig is engraved on the case is told in Pam generals new novel, the lost girls of parish and Pam general for former US foreign service officer now teaches law Rutgers and who's author of the previous bestseller, the orphan's tale joins us from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. So why doesn't she just leave the suitcase? We'll Greece's at an interesting crossroads in her life. She is what I call not quite a war widow. She lost her husband during World War Two but not to combat and she's living in New York. Trying to figure out what's next when she finds the suitcase. So I believe she's intrigued both with the photos for themselves. But also with this journey that is a bit of an escape from her own problems. The stories of these women were inspired by the stories of real people weren't they? They were I was researching from next book idea, and I discovered the incredible tale of the British women who had served in special operations, executive deployed behind enemy lines to engage in sabotage and subversion. And so this book is very much inspired by the real life heroism of those women. They had discovered maybe we should explain that for an a number of reasons men were more vulnerable to being discovered. Yes. It was the darkest days of the war for Britain when they started sending people over I men to engage in these activities and the men were easily discovered because on the streets of France in the early nineteen forties. There simply weren't many young men. They had all been conscripted or imprisoned and so British men trying to fit in were tagged quite easily. So someone said there's lots of women. Why don't we send some of those? You introduces us to a character named Eleanor Trig directly inspired by a real. British character named VERA Atkins. Tell us about them both. So in real life. Vera, Atkins, an interesting woman. She was not British. She was of east European descent of from Jewish family, and she had worked her way up through special operations executive and among other things became in charge of the women's unit. The women who were to serve in SOAP. So she was in charge of their recruitment and their deployment. And ultimately when many of these women were captured and killed. She felt a great deal of guilt and went to find out what had happened to them. You worked at the Pentagon and State Department clothing, a stint in Poland, I gather do we see any of that near novels all of my books are very much inspired by those experiences. I was I at the Pentagon, and that is a time that I refer to as seeing the world from the shoulders of giants to paraphrase. Psoriatic Newton I traveled all over the world with my boss including the fiftieth anniversary commemorations of World War Two and then moved over to the State Department and. Myself. I was I'm Jewish and I was on the ground in Poland became very close to the survivors. And the US government gave me responsibility for the holocaust issues. And so I- emerged from both of those experiences really changed and moved and I've been writing what I refer to as love songs to that period. Ever since so much of this novel is taken up with the stories of people who are trying to do the right thing when it's the stealthy thing. Well, how do we get hold of that in this time and place one of the themes that really emerged for me in writing? This book is the trust that we place in our governments and whether or not such trust is warranted. Which may or may not be a timely theme as well. But in this case in the book, you know, these women just up and left their lives and sometimes children and were dropped into Europe. You know, just dropped by plane and head of sort of fend for themselves, and they were very much doing what they believe was the right thing. But they were only one piece of a much larger puzzle and often, you know, it's a question of whether sort of the ends justify the means. I think do you hope that people who might read your novel might feel some debt to the real people. After whom it's modeled absolutely one of the most striking things is that not just the scope of the heroism of these women in the end their exploits. But you know, after the war they really received very little recognition for a long time. And so there's a great joy. Oy in bringing these stories to life, and someone remarked that this is almost an appropriate story for this metoo moment that we're having because it really is a story about women finding their power and their voice.
