Beatification Process

For past saints, it normally takes five years before the canonization process commences, but it was clear that at least for the masses who attended the papal funeral, John Paul was already a saint. (Santo Subito)

Mons. Slawomir OderPostulator for the Beatification Process of John Paul III am not surprised because I always said that everyone who visited the pope that was close to him, like me, for thirteen years, I saw him at least once a week, I always had the impression that I was living beside a saint. ; So for me, I would say it is not a surprise. ;

If you are interested in contributing your own personal encounter with John Paul, you can write to this address and follow the process on the web. ;
