John Paul II beatification announcement expected

The National Catholic Reporter is reporting that the Vatican may announce Pope John Paul II's beatification as soon as tomorrow.
Beatification is the final step before a person is canonized, in other words, becomes a saint. Beatification would allow the late pope to be called "blessed."
The beatification ceremony may take place as soon as April, to commemorate the six-year anniversary of John Paul II's death.
