Someone on one of the lists I'm active on asked how many saints John
Paul II has canonized. Part of the question implied he's canonized a
record number for a single pope. I believe that's correct, but now have
a number, an answer, but can't remember which list the question appeared
on! Sorry for the cross-posting, but Saint Josemaria (Josemaria Escriva
de Balaguer, 1902-1975, and the controversial founder of Opus Dei, from
northern Spain) was sanctified earlier this month or late September. He
is the 468th saint of Jean Paul II's papacy.

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and
deeds; the worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences
have been properly debated…To think of the future and wait was merely
another way of saying one was a coward; any idea of moderation was just
an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly character; ability to understand a
question from all sides meant that one was totally unfitted for action.”
– Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by Thucydides in “The
Peloponessian Wars”
