New Resting Place for Blessed John Paul II

Early this morning the triple coffin containing the earthly remains of Blessed John Paul II was moved to its new location under the altar in the side chapel dedicated to St Sebastian. This Chapel also houses the magnificent monument to Pope Pius XII and the somewhat less impressive monument to his immediate predecessor, Pius XI.

The first Mass over the late Pope's remains was then celebrated by the Archbishop of Krakow, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz.
