Pope John Paul II’s Beatification this coming month of May – LIVE STREAM
Late pope John Paul II’s coffin was brought out of its resting place in a crypt under Saint Peter’s basilica on Friday ahead of a ceremony that will put him one step from sainthood.
Vatican secretary of state Tarcisio Bertone and Krakow Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz, the former secretary to the pope, held a brief ceremony in front of the coffin before it was carried a short distance to the tomb of Saint Peter.
The coffin will stay where it is until Sunday, when it will be brought into the basilica for the ceremony, after which pilgrims will be able to file past it.
It will then be sealed inside a monument on Monday in the basilica itself in the chapel of Saint Sebastian near Michelangelo’s famous Pieta statue.
The stone that covered John Paul II’s grave while it was in the crypt will be sent to Krakow to be placed inside a new church dedicated to the pope.
