While the Vatican is anticipating and preparing for the arrival of one million pilgrims at tomorrow’s canonization Mass for Popes John XXIII and John Paul II at St. Peter’s Square, countless Catholics around the globe will be able to follow along with the liturgy live online.

The Mass—which, it was confirmed today, will be attended and concelebrated by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI—begins at 9:30 am in Rome, or 3:30 am Eastern time in the US. You can watch a live-stream of the canonization Mass on the Vatican’s website, or you can watch EWTN’s full coverage of the event live on their website starting at 3:30 am ET.

The Vatican has made the program for the Mass available online as well, if you want to follow along with the prayers and readings (English translation begins on page 62 of the PDF).

EWTN is also scheduled to rebroadcast the Mass at 7:00pm ET, for those who aren’t interested in watching it live in the middle of the night!
