Pope John Paul II beatified at Vatican City

In Vatican City, Pope Benedict XVI has beatified the late Pope John Paul II, as witnessed by about 1.5 million Catholics in St. Peter's Square and the surrounding area on Sunday. Consequently, this moves Pope John Paul one step closer to sainthood during one of the most-attended events in Vatican history.

The landmark crowd erupted in cheers during the proceedings, and the choir at St. Peter's Basilica offered a hymn associated with the first-ever Polish born pope.
