|Pope Benedict XVI referred to John Paul as
"the great Pope John Paul II" in his first address as Pope. He is
continuing to call John Paul as "the Great" in his public speeches.
"The Great" is not a formal title of the Church but one given to him by the millions who love him. Leo the Great, Gregory the Great and Nicholas the Great are the only other popes that popular acclaim has so labeled.
Indeed, John Paul was referred to as John Paul the Great
long before his death. But at his death, the unofficial title has
clearly been attached to his name by the laity.
