John Paul II will be declared blessed on 1 May 2011. The announcement was made with the promulgation of the decree that attributes a miracle to John Paul: the spontaneous cure of French nun Marie Simon Pierre Normand, diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Following the beatification ceremony on 1 May, Pope Wojtyla’s coffin will be transferred from the Vatican Grotto to St. Peter’s Basilica without exhumation. Father Lombardi explains: “The body will not be displayed. It will be placed in a room and a simple marble slab will bear the inscription Beatus Ioannes Paulus II (Blessed John Paul II).” The ceremony will be held on 1 May 2011 at St. Peter’s Basilica and anyone can participate. It will be the most important event of the year and we suggest pilgrims book hotels ahead of time so they will not miss this great and unique historical opportunity.
