Chapel Screened Off in St Peter's
Rome Reports runs this video, almost 3 minutes of a screen in St Peter's Basilica, presumably hiding some kind of work. It is front of the Chapel of Saint Sebastian next to the Pieta, which until now has contained the remains Innocent XI who died in 1689.
According to rumour, spread by the French news agency I Media, it is being prepare for the body of Pope John Paul II once he is beatified.
I must admit I'm not a Canonisation subito fan, my Coptic Orthodox friends will not allow any process until the candidate has been dead for 70 years.
