A step closer to Blessed John Paul II

Vatican insiders are expecting Pope Benedict XVI to approve the beatification of John Paul II tomorrow. There is a strong possibility that the beatification will take place on October 16, the anniversary of his election to the papacy.

Apparently, there are also preparations to bring John Paul's tomb to the main church of St. Peter's Basilica. The side chapel is next to the Pieta. You can read about the process here.
