It was confirmed today that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI will attend the canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. This is a history-making event as two popes are present for the canonization of another two popes.
For those anxious to hear from your friends who are in Rome this weekend, don’t panic if you cannot reach them or they cannot reach you. As we expected, internet access is extremely difficult due to the millions of people trying to get on line at the same time. And, of course, the cell phone situation is equally difficult.
So just turn on your favorite Catholic TV station and enjoy the celebration….who knows, you may even spot a familiar face in the crowds.
