This is an odd story from Fox News. I’m going to look more into this but wanted to put it up to see if anyone else knows anything about this. :

The late Pope John Paul II was injured by a crazed, knife-wielding priest in a 1982 stabbing that was kept secret until now, Reuters reported.

John Paul’s former top aide opens up about the pope in a new documentary film called “Testimony.” The film was made from Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz’s memoir, published last year.

On May 12, 1982, John Paul visited a shrine in Portugal to give thanks for surviving an assassination attempt a year earlier, when a Spanish priest lunged at him with a dagger. The fact that the knife actually cut the pope was covered up.

“I can now reveal that the Holy Father was wounded. When we got back to the room (in the Fatima sanctuary complex) there was blood,” Dziwisz says in the documentary, Reuters reported.
