    Eve of the Canonization


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     joelsdb visited Saint Peter’s Square the day before the Canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II, on April 26. He says people were preparing for the Canonization because it is a rare event. ‘In this case, it’s a historic one, with two popes canonized together. It is also important for our times because they lived recently,’ he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Saint Peter's Square and its environs prepares for the canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. The Piazza is set, the images of the new saints welcome the pilgrims and the crowds have come. A dry run for tomorrow's big day!
