The Two Popes Who Will Be Saints


This April 27th, Pope Francis will canonize Blessed Pope John XXIII and Blessed Pope John Paul II. In preparation for this event, the Vatican has launched a website. At this time, it is only in Italian, but even if you do not read Italian it is a beautiful site to take a look at.

I was privileged to have been in Rome during the initial months of Pope John Paul II’s papacy, being in the crowd when he was elected and attending his Mass of Installation. Wonderful memories.
