By WTMJ Staff. CREATED Apr 24, 2014

This weekend's canonization of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII, or "Popapalooza" as some people are calling it, will go down in history as one of the fastest canonizations in history.  Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki is in Italy for the event with a group of local Catholics and he says the city is bursting with excitement and anticipation for this weekend's festivities.
