      . STARTING TODAY IT IS POSSIBLE TO VENERATE JOHN PAUL II IN ST. SEBASTIAN CHAPEL OF VATICAN BASILICA
      ---------------------------------------------------------------




      VATICAN CITY, 3 MAY 2011 (VIS) - The director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr. Federico Lombardi , S.J., announced the following notice late yesterday afternoon.



      "This afternoon, after St. Peter's Basilica was closed to the public, the personnel of the Fabric of St. Peter's began work to transfer the remains of Blessed John Paul II, placing his wood coffin under the altar of the Chapel of St. Sebastian.



      The procession from the sacristy began around 7:15pm and was made up of the officiants, the College of Penitentiaries of St. Peter's, the Chapter of the Basilica, various archbishops and bishops, and nine cardinals. The archpriest of the basilica, Cardinal Angelo Comastri, presided. After an initial pause for prayer before the confessional of the basilica, the litanies of the holy pontiffs were sung and the procession continued to the altar of St. Sebastian where the wood coffin containing the remains of John Paul II were placed under the altar, where it remains visible. At the end of the litanies, after the invocation "Beate Ioanna Paule" was sung three times, the prayer proper of the new Blessed was recited and the altar was incensed. Following this, the workers of the Fabric placed the white marble tombstone, inscribed with the words "Beatus Ioannes Paulus PP. II", on the opening under the altar. Many of those present repeated the gesture of devotion of kissing the tombstone while the assembly, moved and joyful, dispersed".



      Also present were the cardinals Angelo Sodano, dean of the Sacred College, Tarcisio Bertone, secretary of state, Angelo Amato, Giovanni Coppa, Giovanni Lajolo, Giovanni Battista Re, Leonardo Sandri, Franciszek Macharski, and Stanislaw Dziwisz who, like Cardinal Wojtyla, archbishop of Krakow. Also attending were the archbishops Fernando Filoni, Dominique Mamberti, and Mieczyslas Mokrzycki, a personal secretary to Pope John Paul II. The postulator of John Paul II's cause for canonization, Msgr. Slawomir Oder, was also in attendance while among the religious present there was, of course, Sr. Tobiana Sobodka with a few other sisters of the papal apartments.



      The brief ceremony concluded at 7:45pm.



      As of 7:00 this morning, the faithful entering the basilica will be able to venerate the new Blessed in his final resting place in the Chapel of St. Sebastian".

      . TOMORROW'S HOMILY
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      Wednesday of the Second Week of Easter

      Reading 1 : Acts 5:17-26
      Gospel : Jn 3:16-21


      Today's two readings reveal the meaning of God's salvation for the Church.

      In the Gospel we hear those profound words : "God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life."

      Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world lives in Him and in the Light of God.

      Those who live in Jesus Christ and the Light of God are empowered to bear witness and shed the Light of Christ throughout the world.

      Nothing can hold back the Light of Christ; no earthly power, no human institution, no force in the cosmos can squelch the voice of the Church and obscure the Light of Christ. This is the message made clear in the Acts of the Apostles when the authorities of Israel attempted to jail the Apostles and silence them.

      With this confidence the Church preaches throughout the world the Gospel of Christ and the Light of Christ out shines the darkness of the world and illuminates it.

      We are entering the Age of Mercy, when the Light of Christ shines brighter throughout the world so that peoples everywhere may open their minds and hearts to the Gospel of Christ.

      In our day the media paint a portrait of a rebellious world filled with darkness, despair, war and conflict. People of good will are manipulated by the media to see the world as filled with nothing but darkness.

      Christ has come not to condemn the world but to save it. Now is the hour to make your peace with the Lord, confess your sins, convert your life to live a life based solely upon the teaching of the Catholic Church and to bear witness to Christ by good works and acts of mercy.


      Pray to Mary, Queen of Peace, that the Light of Christ shine forth and penetrate the hardened hearts and minds of those who have lived in darkness so that they may turn to her son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

      Pray the Rosary of Our Lady, daily, for world peace and the conversion of the world.
