Double canonization

April 26, 2014
A picture of the late Pope John Paul II was placed by pilgrims near a note on a wind screen near St. Peter's Square at the Vatican on Saturday. Pilgrims and faithful are gathering in to attend Sunday's ceremony at the Vatican, where in a historic match-up of papacies past and present, Pope Francis and emeritus Pope Benedict XVI will honor Popes John XXIII and John Paul II in the first ever canonization of two popes.
