John Paul: The Road Show

JP: The fun saint.
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Relics of Pope John Paul II have arrived for public display in Mexico City, kicking off a four-month tour of the country that will hit more than 100 locations. 

Oh, boy! A traveling almost-saint road show! Wow!! Darn that Mexico for being so far away! I especially love this part of the story:

Worshippers applauded, cried and prayed Thursday morning as a vial of the ex-pontiff's blood and a wax figure of the pope donning a papal robe arrived at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

That popey guy sure knows how to put on a show, doesn't he? This is sure to be a mega-hit in the hinterlands (which includes all of the USA at this point). I'd sure like to see that wax figure of the popey guy puttin' on a robe. Wow!
