It Official: John Paul II and John XXIII will be Canonized!

The Holy Father has given his approval to the canonization of both Pope John Paul II and John XXIII. In a rather unusual move, Pope Francis has dispensed with the necessity of a second miracle in John XXIII’s case. (Please note the error I made in my July 3 posting about this. I had said a second miracle was approved in regard to John XXIII; that was incorrect.)

The only question now is when the canonizations will occur, although all signs indicate they will be before the end of the year, either in October or December.

Soon-to-be saints John Paul II and John XXIII, pray for us!
