John Paul II to be named a Saint: Miracle Approved
The miracle involves a woman from Costa Rica, who was cured from a brain aneurysm, after praying to John Paul II.
For a miracle to be recognized by the Vatican, it must be reviewed by a group of theologians and physicians, who must agree that the cure was immediate and medically inexplicable.
On May 1st, 2011, John Paul II, was declared a blessed by Benedict XVI, when a French nun, Marie Simon-Pierre, was cured from Parkinsons Disease, after continuously praying to John Paul II.
In order to be declared a saint, a second miracle must be attributed to a candidate after, one?s beatification ceremony. The Vatican is expected to announce the date of the canonization in the coming months.
