Pope John Paul II: A step closer to being Saint


Filipinos are excited, here in the Philippines and abroad, as today, May 1 is Pope John Paul II's beatification, which is the last step before sainthood, in a ceremony in St Peter's Square.

The late Pope John Paul II was known to be charismatic and closer to the people that he was dubbed Pope of the People. He twice visited the Philippines, first when he was not yet a pope, and the second during the celebration of the World Youth Day. Filipinos just really love Pope John Paul II and he is really close to the hearts of the Filipinos.

I remember my Aunt who told me her experience when the Pope visited Legazpi City. She said that it was a hot day, but when the Pope passed, there was a cloud shading them and the air became cool. She said she felt a very calm feeling inside, a really unforgettable moment of her life. How I wished I also personally meet Pope John Paul II, but of course, that's impossible now. However, I'm happy that he is in the last step of becoming a saint. Pope John Paul II really deserves to be a saint, he is a Saint.
