Catholics from around the world have recently traveled to Rome for an historic ceremony to declare two popes as saints.

The Popes – John Paul II and John XXIII – were the leaders of the Catholic church during different periods over the last hundred years.

Whenever a Pope is declared a saint the process is known as being canonised.
The ceremony on Sunday is historic because it is the first time two popes have been canonised at the same time.

Around one million people were in Rome for the occasion which was led by the current leader, Pope Francis. Many had camped out over night to get a good seat.

The ceremony was broadcast live across the globe on TV and radio.
