Pius XII Sainthood Drive Stalls --
Via Reuters:

Vatican sources say top cardinals have advised Benedict to go slow on Pius's sainthood process because of the repercussions it could have on relations with Jews and Israel.

The Vatican maintains Pius did not speak out more forcefully against the Holocaust because he was afraid of provoking Nazi reprisals and worsening the fate of Catholics and Jews.

Ia it possible to have done enough to help Jews during WWII without having done the maximum possible? I say yes. This is not a claim that Pius did or didn't do enough; I just wonder if the threshold has been placed too high.
