FILE - In this May 4, 1996 file photo, Pope John Paul II, right, is helped by his personal secretary, Stanislaw Dziwisz, as he arrives in Como, northern Italy, for a two day visit. Poles are divided between praise and condemnation of Pope John Paul II’s secretary over publishing the beloved pontiff’s personal notes against his last will and testament. John Paul ordered the notes burned after his death and put his trusted confidant, 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 pope.
