Rome is ready for canonizations, mayor affirms

Catholic World News - April 17, 2014

The city of Rome is “very ready” for the canonizations of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II later this month, Mayor Ignazio Marino has promised.

The joint canonization ceremony on April 27 is expected to draw nearly 1 million people, including 19 heads of state and 24 heads of government. Marino said that city officials are prepared for that enormous crowd. Extra security measures will be in effect, and special traffic regulations will be put in place to ease congestion.
