Of Saints

Later today, it's fitting that it will be Pope Francis who will canonise the two popes who made his new spin on the ancient office a possibility, the two men who more than any other made the papacy relatable to real people by being so obviously human. I wanted to poke fun at them, indeed I've been saving up jokes for this occasion for years, but I couldn't bring myself to do it, so instead you get my worst ever picture of Pope John Paul II, one of my less good attempts at John XXIII, and some quotes from two of my very favourite popes. Two humble men who deserve respect and recognition, John the holy old boy, and John Paul the illest.
