Canonization Date for JP2 and John XXIII

See, the Catholic Church isn't completely opposed to gambling like certain Protestants. (HERE). That means I'm clueless as to why I didn't bet on the canonization date for Blesseds John Paul II and John XXIII...I would have won something, or at least not lost any!

Pope Francis on Monday morning held the Public Ordinary Consistory for the forthcoming Canonization of Blessed Pope John XXIII and Blessed Pope John Paul II. During the course of the Consistory in the Vatican's Consistory Hall, the Pope decreed that his two predecessors will be raised to Sainthood on April 27, 2014, the day on which the Church celebrates the Second Sunday of Easter and Divine Mercy.
