Beatification of John Paul II

This Sunday, the Feast of the Divine Mercy, sees the beatification of Pope John Paul II. This is a particularly appropriate day for his beatification: he described Divine Mercy as the message of the third millennium. You can read more about John Paul II and devotion to the Divine Mercy on the website of the Archdiocese of Detroit.
