There were Kings and Queens, Prime Ministers and Presidents including Italy's Giorgio Napolitano at the historic twin saint-making ceremony at the Vatican for former Pope John Paul II and John XXIII.

Pilgrims cheered and yelled 'Francesco' as the popular Argentinean drove through the crowds on his open-sided Pope-mobile.

Over 2,200 journalist were accredited. The Vatican estimated that about 800,000 watched the mass in Rome -- many coming from Poland to honor their favorite son, John Paul II.
