In the times when the cult of saints was an important part of Catholic faith, the Church often deliberated for centuries before beatification or sanctification. John Paul II. made more saints than many generations of popes before him, but he used the beatification/sanctification as a way to send a political message and contributed to farther inflation of sainthood. Maybe Pius XII. will be made a saint, but his future reputation depends on the historians - remember that internal Vatican documentation about his pontificate is still secret.
