Popes.to.be.canonizedWe join the Universal Church in rejoicing at the canonization of two 20th century popes: Pope John XXIII (1958-1963) and Pope John Paul II (1978-2005)!  By their lives and by their pontificates, both of these new saints gave public witness of authentic holiness, kindness and vision for the Church and for the world.

The Vatican and various foundations have prepared and sponsored a number of special on-line resources for this event:
