"in the month remaining before John Paul II is beatified, take some time to learn more about this beloved figure and decide for yourself if the time is right to declare him blessed. " This does not reflect a Catholic perspective . "Decide for yourself" is a phrase that reflects many other spiritual and intellectual traditions but definitely not Catholicism. How about "in the month remaining... find out for yourself why the Church has declared that it is time to declare him blessed." Peace :)
