The crowds in St. Peter’s Square were smaller this morning, but many people took part in another mass to celebrate the sainthood of two popes.

About a million people crowded into the square Sunday; this morning’s congregation was barely 40,000.

Unlike yesterday, no one had to sleep out on the square overnight to save a space.

Many of those attending this morning’s mass were unable to take part in Sunday’s canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II.

Polish flags are being waved with pride, as Polish people rejoice over the canonization of their countryman, John Paul.
