It is official. Popes John XXIII and John Paul II are officially recognized by the Catholic Church of Jesus Christ as saints. They are listed now among the Communion of Saint! This is a great moment for the Church.
The day is not only historic in that two Popes were canonized, but also because two living Popes were also present. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI arrived dressed in episcopal vestments and concelebrated as the current Pope Francis lead the celebration! This is truly an awesome event!
