Since the beatification of John Paul II is one of the biggest events ROME REPORTS has covered, we want to celebrate the anniversary with style, by giving out prizes to our viewers and re-living this great day through social networks.
A day before the big ceremony, we were the first to see the statue of John Paul II, as it decorated Via della Conciliazione for a few hours.
Then we went to Rome's Circo Massimo, to take part in a unique vigil with John Paul II's former secretary, spokesperson, and the nun who was miraculously cured through the intercession of the great Pope.
We followed the journey, by spending the night at St. Peter's Square, to capture the first images of pilgrims who camped out to get the best spot. And together, we all heard the words Benedict XVI said as he beatified John Paul II.
Now we invite you, our viewer, to relive this unforgettable day, a year later. On Tuesday May 1st, post your pictures, videos, comments and memories of John Paul II and the days leading up to his beatification on Facebook
During the day we will publish special videos on the web and we will even give out some of our documentaries, for free. Even more, we will give out 20 free memberships to Club ROME REPORTS
So, there you have it. We'll see you next Tuesday May 1st, here at ROME REPORTS.com
