ROME -- The Vatican made it official Sunday. Pope John Paul II will become Saint John Paul, less than a decade after his death.
The late pontiff will be canonized this year along with a predecessor and reformer, Pope John XXIII.
Church officials said the measure of a saint is not the list of accomplishments or setbacks -- but how holy a person was.
The formal ceremony for canonizing John Paul II could come as early as this December.
