Great news!  Both Popes, John XXIII and John Paul II will be canonized on April 27, 2014; the feast day of Divine Mercy or Divine Mercy Sunday!

 

This confirms previous reports.

 

John XXII was born Angelo Roncalli and served as a military chaplain during World War I.  He was responsible for the Vatican II council which helped the Church keep up with the modern times but without changing her teachings.  He was a humble Pope who later developed stomach cancer.

 

John Paul II is probably more known today especially by the youth.  He was born Karol Wojtyla in Krakow, Poland.  He took dealt with wartime in his native land and ministered to the youth.  He was an actor and later was ordained a priest.

 

Both Popes were very humble, holy and in touch with the people.  They both bore the Cross of Christ throughout their lives, especially during their pontificates where they suffered greatly.

 

This is a great time for the Church.  May Blessed John XXIII and John Paul II pray for us.  Rumor has it that both living popes, Benedict XVI and Francis will celebrate the Mass in April 2014!
