Two Popes to be Canonised

Pope Francis on Monday morning held the Public Ordinary Consistory for the forthcoming Canonisation of Blessed Pope John XXIII and Blessed Pope John Paul II.

During the course of the Consistory in the Vatican's Consistory Hall, the Pope decreed that his two predecessors will be raised to Sainthood on April 27, 2014, the day on which the Church celebrates the Second Sunday of Easter and Divine Mercy. MORE>
