I deleted the following text:

"With regard to the relations with the 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 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 refused to attended the Mass because Pope did not express his regreat. They met later that day."

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.

References section

After pasting the Wikipedia text, I attempted to make a References section, only to find I needed some templates. My subsequent attempts to port them have failed with the Footnotes Template and Footnotes Small Template. I dont know at the moment how to draw out the citations from the text, so I will try to fix it later. But if someone else wishes to fix it first, please feel free =).
