A book that recently came out declares Pop John Paul II to have a special belt that he would whip him self to be “a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ”.

The book writer Slawomir Oder wrote that “In the closet, among the cloaks, a particular pant-belt hung from a hook, which he utilized as a whip and one which he always had brought to Castel Candolfo”. Oder at the time was the head of the council that judges if Popes should be given the title of "saint" after they die.

self-mortification, self-flagellation is not biblical.
