128 years after construction commenced on Sagrada Familia, it will be officially blessed by the Pope this Sunday, enabling the first masses to take place in the beautiful space. Once it has been consecrated the space will be open to up to 9 000 worshipers at each service, and should be complete within the next 16 years, if the visitors and faithful keep up the donations.

There are plans afoot to beatify Gaudi, which if successful will make him the first architect saint. Members of the Pro-Beatification of Antonio Gaudi Association have revealed two miracles attributed to him which are currently before the Vatican for consideration. It is hoped the sainthood may become official by June 10th, 2016, 90 years after his death.
