Papal canonizations

Sunday's canonization rite short, with saints made at same time

 | 

The sainting of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II will happen at the same time Sunday morning, when Pope Francis decrees it to be so at a Vatican ceremony expected to attract near one million people.

The ceremony -- expected to start at about 9:30 AM in Rome (3:30 AM Eastern) -- will itself be relatively short, expected to last around three hours.
