FILE - In this Oct. 16, 2003 file photo Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz assists a waving Pope John Paul II during a special audience in the Paul VI Hall at the Vatican. Poles are divided between praise and condemnation of John Paul II’s secretary for publishing the late pope’s personal notes against his last will and testament. John Paul ordered the notes burned after his death and put his trusted confidant, the Rev. Dziwisz, in charge of the task. To everyone’s surprise, Dziwisz, now a cardinal, said recently that he “did not have the courage” to destroy the notes and is having them published as a precious insight into the inner life of the beloved pontiff, who will be declared a saint in April.
