New Vatican exhibit commemorates life of John Paul II

Catholic World News - April 28, 2011

The Vatican will open a special exhibit on the life of Pope John Paul II on April 29, just two days before the late Pope’s beatification.

The exhibit—organized by the Vatican with the Polish government—will follow the life of Karol Wojtyla from childhood through his papacy. It will be on display in the colonnade of the Charlemagne Wing of St. Peter’s Square until July 24.

The formal opening of the exhibit on Friday morning will also see the official release of stamps struck to commemorate the beatification. The stamps are a joint product of the Vatican and Polish postal systems.
