Two New Saints
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The Catholic Church has two new Saints this morning.
Pope Francis Canonized Pope John the 23rd and Pope John Paul the second into sainthood during a special ceremony in Saint Peter's Square on Sunday.
Its the first time in the Church's 2,000-year history that two popes were declared saints at the same time.
Hundreds of thousands of Catholics watched the ceremony alongside retired pope benedict the 16th.
It was also another first yesterday when a reigning and retired pope celebrated this kind of mass together in public.
