The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate was beautiful. But the beatification ceremony of Pope John Paul II was spectacular! I was flipping from CNN, MSNBC, FOX, and EWTN, not wanting to miss anything. The ceremony and pomp were awesome. Rome and cities all around the world cheered and applauded JPII's beatification--this is the second step to possible sainthood. Now that JPII is beatified, he may be considered a holy man. He is now designated as Blessed Pope John Paul II.
