Vatican announces May 1 beatification for John Paul II

HURRAH!

Read the story here.

The reasons for beatification from the horse's mouth ... yes, full text of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints's decree for the beatification of the late great Servant of God John Paul II

(My comment to those who might think that fast-tracking sainthood is a modern thing: St. Anthony of Padua died 1231. He was canonized 1232. Sometimes it's just obvious.

  4. That's really interesting - I didn't know that about St. Anthony of Padua. Glad to have that rejoinder handy.
