22 April 2014

Prayer Vigil in preparation for the canonization of the two Blessed Pontiffs, John XXIII and John Paul II

The Liturgical Office of the Diocese of Rome, in preparation for the canonizations of the two Blessed Pontiffs, John XXIII and John Paul II, is offering three prayer outlines for the animation of Prayer Vigils to help the faithful prepare for this graced filled event.

Relics and pictures of the two Pontiffs may be exposed for the veneration of the public and be placed in a liturgical space or in the presbytery, but not upon the altar. The relics and pictures may be decorated with flowers and candles, and can also be incensed together with the altar and the cross at the beginning of the vigil.
