Just another day in the life of Saint Jolie!

Yes, Mz. Angelina Jolie visited the Turkey and Syrian border this week to meet with Syrian refugees as part of her duties as an ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

During her visit, Angie will meet with some of the 9,600 people who have fled the violent protests occurring in Syria.

Just before she arrived, Turkish authorities held a banner that read:

"Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome."

As always, it's so wonderful to see her continue to use her fame to cause awareness around the world.

So inspiring.

Pope John Paul II Gets Closer To Sainthood

Filed under: Media Minute

pope john paul II gets closer to sainthood

Looks like the current Pope's going to have a lot to live up to!

Today, the Vatican announced that Pope John Paul II will be beatified on May 1st.

The late Pope will be referred to as "the Blessed John Paul II" following the beatification ceremony, and he'll be much closer to becoming a saint.

For one to be "beatified," a post-death miracle must be proven "through the scrutiny of medical and theological experts."

Looks like John Paul should be all set to be beatified, as he's been credited for healing Sister Marie-Simon-Pierre who prayed to him, following his death. According to "experts," her prayers to the late Pope cured her of Parkinson's disease, and it was deemed "a miracle."

For John Paul II to actually reach saint status, he'll need a second miracle to be confirmed.

Guess we'll see what happens. We'll be sure to keep an ear out for any miracle reports.

Do U think John Paul II deserves recognition as a saint? Do U think it will happen?
