Future Tomb of JP2
The Vatican has announced JP2's funeral plans. It's been decided that he will be buried in the former tomb of John XXIII (picture above). I suspected part of this decision may have been that when John XXIII died, they knew there would be a lot of pilgrims, and so if the location of his tomb worked well to accomodate that, then perhaps they were thinking it would work well for JP2, who will have LOTS of pilgrims to his tomb (me, someday!!).
I do hope some changes are made to the tomb's adornment, both to enrich the grandeur of the tomb but, perhaps more importantly, to make the tomb reflect more this Pope's piety and person.
