I missed it so am watching it now. The Mass is just starting.

One of the most reverent and beautiful canonization masses ever!!! The fusion of indigenous and liturgical music was astoundingly breathtaking. I don't recall ever seeing so many priests, bishops, cardinals and prelates gathered together to celebrate the life of a saint. The media has had a hey day, continuing with their focus on the pope's health. Anyone who watched these ceremonies could plainly see that this pope is like a national hero in Mexico. At 82, his physical body shows all the signs of arthritis and parkinson's disease, but his eyes are fully alert and receptive to all the proceedings.

For those who missed this mass, it will be repeated again. Check the www.ewtn.com web site for the correct rebroadcast time. Also, EWTN plans to show the canonization mass that took place in Guatemala, this past Wednesday. According to the commentators, this is another MUST SEE!
