I deleted the following text:
<blockquote> "With regard to the relations with the [[Church of Serbia|Serbian Orthodox Church]], Pope John Paul II could not escape the controversy of the involvement of Croatian Catholic clergy with the Ustasa regime of World War II. He beatified WWII-time archibishop of Zagreb, Alojzije Stepinac, in 1998, the Croatian war-time archbishop of Zagreb, convicted for colaboration with Croatian Ustašas fascist regime in 1946. This move was seen negatively by [[Church of Serbia|Serbian Church]] and Serbian people. On [[June 22]], 2003, he visited Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a main city of Serbian Orthodox population in Bosnia. He held a Mass at the Petrićevac [[monastery]]. It's friars participated in killing Serbs during the World War II (most notorius of them was Fra Stjepan Filipovic Majstorović). Orthodox Bishop of Banja Luka [[Jefrem (Milutinovic) of Banja Luka|Jefrem]] refused to attended the Mass because Pope did not express his regreat. They met later that day." </blockquote>
because it is rather inflammatory and currently unsubstantiated. If the contributor of this text could provide citations and rephrase the tone, then it would be more encyclopedic.
