Blessed John Paul II

Today is the last time John Paul II will celebrated as a Blessed, since by this time next year, he will be a saint. 

Blesseds John XXIII and John Paul II will be declared saints at a single ceremony on April 27, 2014.

Pope Francis made the announcement on September 30. April 27 is Divine Mercy Sunday, a worldwide celebration begun by Pope John Paul II.

Catholic News Services has the complete story here.

On OSV's Daily Take blog, read an edited excerpt from "John Paul II and the Meaning of Suffering: Lessons from a Spiritual Master" by Robert G. Schroeder.
