Popes John Paul II and John XXIII will be declared saints on April 27, 2014. Pope Francis announced the date Monday during a meeting with cardinals inside the Apostolic Palace. Francis had announced in July he would canonize two of the 20th century's most influential popes together, approving a miracle attributed to John Paul's intercession and bending Vatican rules by deciding that John XXIII didn't need one.
