Late popes John Paul II and John XXIII will be made saints of the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican said on Friday in a widely-awaited announcement, without specifying when the canonisations will occur.

"The Supreme Pontiff approved... the canonisation of Blessed John XXIII... and decided to call a consistory on the canonisation of Blessed John Paul II," it said.
