Pre Pope John Paul II Bishops

So the question: How many active bishops were appointed to their current post before Pope John Paul II became Pope?

The answer is only 4.

The ordinaries are:
There are no longer any Auxiliary Bishops that meet the criteria. The last one retired in January 2012.

All of them were named by Pope Paul VI.

You'll notice that many of them are at or near the retirement age. Before they do retire, let us take a moment to thank them for their many years of service!
