The report is finished and there are just a few technical tweaks to make, but today the Vatican announced that the report on the possible beatification and canonization of Pope John-Paul II is finished...
The completion of this preliminary investigation brings John-Paul a step to being raised to the dignity of the altars in the Roman Catholic Church. At the time of the Pope’s death, there were popular sentiments that hoped for his immediate declaration of sainthood. Banners that proclaimed, “Sancto subito!” or “Sainthood Now!” dominated the crowds during his funeral liturgy.
Pope John Paul II: Sancto Subito!
