Stayed tuned. Possible big news around the corner!

Reliable sources are saying that Pope Francis will sign documents tomorrow from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints assenting to the canonizations of both Blessed John Paul II and Blessed John XXIII.

The Congregation met earlier this week, but their recommendations are not announced until affirmed by the Holy Father. I guess this time they invoked the “Italian Secret” rule, which means you can only tell 100 of your closest friends, and they can tell only 10 of their friends, etc.

Anyhow, the cat seems to be out of the bag. Pope Francis’ affirmation would probably put the official canonization ritual sometime around the end of the year. It is presumed that both would be canonized at the same time.

Stayed tuned, folks. (It will be nice to know that I was ordained by a saint!)
