Pope Francis declared Pope John Paul II and Pope XXIII Saints on Sunday in the first dual canonization ceremony in the history of the Roman Catholic Church.

Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world were gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the elaborate event, some queuing for up to 15 hours to stake out their precious spot in history.

Nearly one million people were estimated to have descended on Rome and many millions more watched the spectacle on television.
