February 23rd, 2011 - Comments Off

LOS ANGELES, California — “For the beatification Mass of Pope John Paul II, as made clear from the outset, no tickets are required,” the Vatican said. The Vatican also advise the faithful not to fall prey to fraudster, especially on internet, who sells tickets for the beatification.

The Vatican said, refrain from tour operators promising to secure tickets as part of their packages.

John Paul II, who died in 2005, will be declared a blessed of the church and move one step closer to sainthood. Italian and Church authorities expect an estimated crowd of more than a million for the mass.
