"I have heard that the pope…." doesn’t mean anything, except that you heard something.
"I read somewhere that John Paul was that way…." doesn’t mean anything except that you read something.
If there is any documented evidence that shows any actual proof that John Paul II knew about sexual abuse…
"My father always says, ‘Never trust anyone who has a TV bigger than their bookshelf.’ So I make sure I read. Back at home, I just put up a massive bookcase and asked everyone I know and love to help me fill it with their favorite books. It’s been quite nice because I’ve learned a lot about my friends and family from what they’ve been giving me. A book says a lot about a person." — Emilia Clarke for Instyle UK (April 2014)

As she strode off, the Doctor put his hand to his cheek.
