Nearly a million people attended Sunday's canonisation ceremony for Popes John-Paul II and John XXXIII in Rome. Delegations from 98 states and international organisations, including France's Prime Minister Manuel Valls, were there. In France, churches around the country set up live video feeds for those who could not make it to Rome to celebrate the newest Catholic saints. Dozens of Paris churches opened their doors, including Montmartre's Sacré Coeur Basilica.
