Pope to announce canonization date of Roncalli and Wojtyla on 30th September

2013-08-21 Vatican Radio

The two Popes, who will be canonized at the same ceremony, will be canonized certainly in 2014. “I think it is difficult this year and will probably be next year” added Cardinal Amato on the sidelines of the Meeting for Friendship Among Peoples in Rimini. Cardinal Amato only confirms what was already spoken of by the Pope himself. “The Holy Father on the plane that brought him to Brazil had already announced that the canonizations would not be imminent during the last months of 2013, but in 2014,” says Cardinal Amato.
