Canonization of two Popes
Canonization of two Popes

The Canonization of two Popes, Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II, took place April 27, 2014 on Divine Mercy Sunday. This canonization was the first historically since it was performed by two Popes, our current Pope Francis and Emeritus Pope Benedict, in which two Popes were canonized.

The canonizations of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II April 27 marked a historic moment for the Catholic Church. To explore the meaning of the lives of these modern-day spiritual heroes, the U.S. Bishops Office for Media Relations asked several persons to reflect on their contributions. Writers include scholars and theologians - Catholic, Orthodox and Jewish - and media personnel involved in coverage of the much traveled John Paul II. Each could have written a book, but were limited to the brief reflections presented here.

Below are some excerpts from these contributions...

"Good Pope John now to be St. John XXIII continues to inspire and prod us to step boldly into the world with the saving message of Jesus Christ." More here...
-Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas

"John XXIII boldly opened a window for the Church to see the world with hope. John Paul II bravely opened a door through which he carried this hope as a relentless pilgrim." More here...
-Bishop Jaime Soto

"After reading Journal of a Soul, I realize why I never finished reading it the first time. I stopped at the point where I could not relate to his reflections. I didn't have enough experience and understanding to grasp what he was talking about. Now older, I can compare my experience to his and learn from his wisdom." More here...
-Father John Crossin, OSFS

"The need for humor in the spiritual life is often underplayed in Catholic circles. Humor is often seen as irrelevant, frivolous or silly. But as John XXIII and so many of the saints show us, it is an essential requirement for a healthy Christian life." More here...
-Father James Martin. SJ
