Count on EWTN Global Catholic Network for complete coverage of events surrounding the beatification of the late Pope John Paul II, whom many Catholics have called a saint, albeit unofficially, since his funeral. EWTN News Director Raymond Arroyo, who has covered more papal events than anyone in the business, will anchor EWTN's coverage – from the Vigil to the Beatification to the Mass of Thanksgiving. From this page, you can watch our coverage, read about the beatification process and the miracle attributed to the late Pope, and be inspired by his writings and his life. We love you, JPII!
