It was a simple ceremony that was the first of the planned events for the beatification.

The casket of John Paul II is composed of three sections. One of wood, which is what was seen during the funeral, another is made of lead and the third is of timber, which is what is seen here.

At the end, the coffin was covered by a solemn white and gold fabric and then placed in front of the tomb of St. Peter. It will remain there until after the beatification ceremonies.  

The slab of stone covering the tomb to this point will be given away to the new church dedicated to the Blessed John Paul II, which is being built in Krakow, the home town of Karol Wojtyla.
