Vatican Pope John Paul II

In this file photo taken on April 23, 1997, Pope John Paul II waves to the faithful as he crosses St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. Pope Francis has cleared John Paul II for sainthood, approving a miracle attributed to his intercession. Francis also decided Friday to canonize another beloved pope, John XXIII, even though there has been no second miracle attributed to his intercession.
