His Career Batting Average May Be .324, But...

There seems to be a strengthening movement to skip the usual lag time and canonize Pope JP II immediately. My understanding of sainthood is that it essentially serves as the Catholicism Hall of Fame. JP could well be qualified (I don't know about his "miracles," but as a recovering Lutheran, that's not my place to judge), but the process is there for a reason. How embarrassing would it be for Catholics worldwide to canonize JP now, only to discover that he set many of his records while on illegal performance-enhancing supplements?
