Blessed John Paul II Memorial Figurine. White Resin 6" H statue on base. Soon to become Saint John Paul.

Born Karol Jozef Wojtyla in Wadowice, Poland, Pope John Paul II (1920-2005,) received the title of veneration on the first Sunday after Easter 2011. Beatification is a recognition in which the Catholic Church confirms a dead person's entrance into Heaven has capacity to intercede on behalf of individuals who pray in his or her name (AKA "Intersession of Saints.")  Beatification is the third of four steps in the process of "Canonization,"  When the Canonization process is completed, an intercessor receives the title of "Saint."
