Canonisation Day in Rome

Live stream from St Peter's for the canonisation cermemony:

The worship aid for the ceremonies is available HERE.

Rocco over at Whispers in the Loggia as usual has a great reflective piece on the meaning of the canonisations for the universal church and the challenge it poses to all Catholics - Two Saints. One Church. One Call

John Allen has a front page piece on this mornings Boston Globe

You can also follow events as they happen with the Irish Catholics Live Blog

The crowds are allowed into St Peter's Square at 6am (Rome time) - News.va Facebook page - amazing pictures and video.

Meanwhile last night in Rome:

With the canonization ceremony just a day away, thousands of pilgrims gathered in parishes across Rome to take part in prayer vigils. It will be a busy night for many, since St. Peter's Square will open early Sunday morning to welcome the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who will attend the canonization ceremony of John Paul II and John XXIII.
