In the film Cardinal Dziwisz reveals that a Spanish priest lightly wounded John Paul II during a visit to the Shrine of Fatima in Portugal. The priest was apprehended and sent to jail; the Pontiff was not seriously hurt, although blood was found on his vestments, and he was able to continue with his schedule.

Interesting article and summary of the film. I wonder if it will be made available for all to see?

Take Care and God Bless,

Yeah, and I wonder about this ultra conservative priest--what group was he affiliated with?

Juan María Fernández y Krohn (born in Spain in 1948) is a former Roman Catholic priest and former Belgian lawyer who tried to physically attack Pope John Paul II in 1982[1]. Ordained a diocesan priest in the cathedral of Madrid, Spain, in 1978, he conditionally joined the Society of Saint Pius X in 1979 but was quickly expelled from that priestly institute in the same year because he openly proclaimed that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's opposition to Pope John Paul II was too weak[2] and also because he showed severe signs of mental instability.

On May 12, 1982, he wounded Pope John Paul II with a knife[3] [4] in Fatima, Portugal; during his trial, he claimed that he was opposed to the reforms of Vatican II and that he believed Pope John Paul II had been in league with the Soviet Union and even was a secret Communist agent trying to corrupt the Vatican. He received a six-year sentence though he served only three years[5] and then was expelled from Portugal, after which he moved to Belgium. By then, he had already completely given up the Roman Catholic priesthood. In Belgium he became a respected but controversial lawyer known for his violent acts in the court rooms. During the beginning of his career as a lawyer, he was accused of slapping judge and Cassation president mr. Erik Carre into the face with his flat hand. Fernández y Krohn was also accused of spreading "anti-semitic propaganda" which he allegedly handed out in the councillors' room of the Brussels Palace of Justice.

In 1996, in Spain, he was charged with setting fire to a local centre of the Herri Batasuna, the political branch of the violent Basque separatist group ETA. He was subsequently acquitted.

He was arrested again in July 2000 after climbing over a security barricade at the Royal Palace of Brussels, intent on killing either Belgian King Albert II or the approaching Spanish King Juan Carlos. He received a four month probational sentence and a fine.[6]

During these trials and court sessions, it was claimed that Fernández y Krohn suffers from mental illness as his outbreaks of extreme violence would seem to indicate.[7] The Belgian judge motivated the relatively mild sentence by pointing to the fact that the "psychiatric problems" and "manic depressiveness" of Fernández y Krohn had already been improving. The jugde also mentioned Fernández y Krohn's explicit repentance and his public apologies, as well as his improved behaviour due to psychological treatment.

After 2000, he has lived in Belgium and Spain, and is reported to be an expert in art and literature of the Spanish post-Civil War period (1939-1990).
