Venerabile Est!

Good news! Pope Benedict XVI signed the decree today recognizing the heroic virtue of the Servant of God John Paul II. This means he's now the Venerable John Paul II. This means all that remains for beatification is the vote of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints on the miracle already attributed to him and the approval of the Pope recognizing the miracle, should the Congregation approve it.

Bl. JP II in 2010? It's possible. But we await the prudent timing of Rome.

Also interesting is that Pius XII is now Venerable Pius XII.
