A tapestry of late John Paul II is displayed on the facade of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, Sunday, May 1, 2011. Pope Benedict XVI beatified Pope John Paul II before more than a million faithful in St. Peter’s Square and surrounding streets Sunday, moving the beloved former pontiff one step closer to possible sainthood.
