The 16 Best Pictures from the Canonization Weekend

Jeffrey Bruno

Aleteia - published on 04/28/14

It was huge!

What a weekend! The first time in history that two popes – both from living memory, no less – were canonized on the same day, and with a pope and a pope emeritus present!

We had our photographer Jeffrey Bruno on the ground for all the events, and these are the 16 best shots you don't want to miss. Find all of Aleteia's photos our on Flickr photo stream.
