Recently, two remarkable personages were canonized by the Vatican in participation with the Catholic Churches globally, they were St. Pope John XXIII, or "The Good Pope John" and St. John Paul II or "John Paul the Great". Their lives were an open book despite the adversities they went through with the Service to God and Humanity, inspired millions to carry on the mission and vision. The Bloggers Association of the Philippines proudly proclaimed to the world and welcomes the Joint Canonization of the two Saints Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II at the Araneta Coliseum on April  27, 2014 with His Eminence Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, who shed tears of joy and appreciation to the goodness of God to man. You decide wether they have overcome the World.  Here are some of the highlighted achievements:

St. John XXIII
Among the first things that Pope John Paul did in his papacy was to eliminate the impressions that Jews as treacherous and deceitful during the Good Friday liturgy., Even before he became Pope, as Papal Nuncio during the holocaust  in World War II, he was instrumental in saving  hundreds of thousands of Jews from various Nazi concentration camps. He express strong moral views against contraceptives and was a fierce advocate for human rights especially for the unborn and the elderly. He was also very passionate about delivering the necessary social services to the poor, the sick, the disabled and the unemployed.

St. John Paul II
Pope John Paul  II was known for his devotion to the Divine Mercy and a Patron of World Youth Day. He was instrumental in helping to end communism in his native Poland and then the whole of Europe. He has significantly improved the Catholic Church relations with Judaism, Islam, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Anglicans. He upheld the church teachings against the artificial contraception and the ordination of women priests, and supported the 2nd Vatican Council and its reforms. He visited 129 countries during his term. He beatified 1,340 people and canonized 483 saints which is more than the combine tally of all his predecessors in the last five centuries. He named the most of the present College of Cardinals, consecrated/ co-consecrated a great number of Bishops past and present and ordained many more priests.

In the midst of all deceptions and confusion in our society, we need Saints to inspire us and show as the way, the Way Jesus Christ Showed us some 2,000 years ago. Heroes can show us their martyrdom, Saints keep us focus to God by their examples. (VergarciaBlogs)
