John XXIII and John Paul II

be Saints and we enroll them among the Saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

One thought on “A Definition !

  1. Saint John Paul II was definitely a holy man.
