Canonization of two Popes

April 26, 2014

The joint canonization of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII on Sunday is a convergence of coincidences, personalities and legacies. Not only is the elevation of two popes to sainthood at the same time unprecedented, but the men sitting in the audience will also represent a first for the Catholic Church; the ceremony will be attended by two popes. Pope Francis will lead the ceremony as the current head of the church, watched over by his predecessor, Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI.
