This one was a shoe-in. Trust me.
Here’s another shot, just so you get the idea of scale.
Here’s a sideshot by GinaD.
An outpouring of Spirit from San Salvador City. Appropriate all around… but in the spirit of Pope Francis, I can’t help but be generous today. Here’s my Bonus Shrine for a two Pope canonization! For St. John Paul II, who, through grace, gave us this day. He revealed it’s truth to the world– I offer you this.
This site is mentioned in the famous Diary that started it all, and where the first shrine was placed. Note: this site was renovated in 2009.
So, there we have it! A twofer for a twofer!
FYI– I have an article about John XXIII (as well as John Paul II) in the works, and that should be up soon.
Blessed Divine Mercy Sunday to you!
