Soon To Be Saint - 24 Apr 2014
Two giants of Roman Catholicism in the 20th century will become saints on April 27, 2014 at an unprecedented twin canonisation that has aroused both joy and controversy in the 1.2 billion-member Church. Pope John XXIII, who reigned from 1958 to 1963 and called the modernising Second Vatican Council, and Pope John Paul II, who reigned for nearly 27 years before his death in 2005 and whose trips around the world made him the most visible pope in history, will be declared saints by Pope Francis.
