3 An historic day for millions around the world-- An unprecedented ceremony in front of huge crowds in St. Peters Square in Vatican City. Pope Francis canonized Pope John the 23rd... and Pope John Paul the second. Millions more around the world watched - as the two former pontiffs were installed as saints. This is the first time we've seen a dual canonization. Channel 4's Marques White spoke to people in our area who say they are moved by the today's major moment in church history - on this Divine Mercy Sunday - a day that many celebrate having their sins forgiven. 3 00-0624-3032-3738-441:20- 1:241:35-1:40 SUPERS: BILL WARNER/FAITHFUL FATHER ED MURPHY/PASTOR AT BASILICA OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION MARQUES WHITE/ DANIEL GUINDON/ASSOC.PASTOR AT BASILICA OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION DONNA WILLIAMS/MET POPE JOHN PAUL II The faithful, cardinals, bishops and priests around the world attended the ceremony.
