John Paul II and John XXIII Approved for Sainthood

Many Catholics around the world celebrated Francis’s approval of sainthood for Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII. John Paul II, who died in 2005, will have become a saint in record time: 8 years. And, for John XXIII, Francis waived the requirement of a second miracle.
