The Beatification of Pope John Paul II **

On 1 May, Divine Mercy Sunday, The Holy Mass of Beatification for Pope John Paul II will take place in St. Peter's Square. Various media outlets have stated that more than 2,000,000 pilgrims are expected flock to The Vatican. Among the pilgrims will be dozens of Catholic royals and nobles.

Luxemburger Wort reports that The Grand Ducal Couple, The Hereditary Grand Duke and Prince Louis will attend the events surrounding the Holy Mass and Beatification.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Princess Marie-Astrid and Princess Margaretha also in attendance, since the Cour Grand-Ducale rarely comments on their considerable activities.

The family also attended Mass at The Vatican during Easter weekend.

Hotel rates in Rome for the weekend are even higher than those in London for the royal wedding. Most of the hotels in Rome have been booked solid since the date was confirmed.
