FILE - In this file photo taken on April 15 1963, Pope John XXIII walks in the gardens of the Vatican. Pope Francis has cleared John Paul II for sainthood, approving a miracle attributed to his intercession. Francis also decided Friday, July 5, 2013, to canonize another beloved pope, John XXIII, even though there has been no second miracle attributed to his intercession. The Vatican said Francis approved a decision by cardinals and bishops. The ceremonies are expected before the end of the year. (AP-Photo/HO Vatican) less
