Today is Blessed John Paul II Birthday.

John Paul II in 1982 at Fatima.

This is nuts news:  SSPX priest tried to kill John Paul II in 1982.
The late Pope John Paul II was wounded in a 1982 knife attack a year after an assassination attempt, but kept the injury secret, a top aide to the pontiff has revealed in a new documentary film.  
The attack occurred on May 12, 1982, when Juan Fernandez Krohn lunged at John Paul with a bayonet during a ceremony in the shrine of Fatima in Portugal.

John Paul went to the shrine to give thanks for surviving a gunshot wound from Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981.

The Pope's bodyguards immediately tackled and arrested Krohn, an ultra-conservative priest from Spain. - CBC News
I did not know that!  He surely was the Pope of the Third Secret, wasn't he. 
Here’s an anniversary that will live in infamy: On May 12, 1982, Father Juan María Fernández y Krohn, a priest of the Society of St. Pius X, attacked Pope John Paul II with a bayonet during the pope’s visit to Fatima. 

During his trial, the priest testified that he opposed the reforms of Vatican II, and that he believed Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was too weak in his opposition to the pontiff. He believed, in fact, that the pope was a “secret Communist agent” who was trying to corrupt the Vatican. - Seasons Of Grace
I wonder if the guy has a blog now?
