The news that Pope John Paul II will most likely be beatified later this year comes at an exciting time for Catholics. With the Pope's visit to the UK only a few months ago, the Ordinariate and Pope Benedict XVI making history on Radio 4's 'Thought for the Day' this comes as excellent news.
(EDIT: I actually made a drawing of this photo during my preparation for Confirmation. The then priest left and I've been told it should still be somewhere in the church/presbytery. I hope to see it again one day.)
