Pope could approve a miracle attributed to Paul VI, soon...

Cardinals and Bishops of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints have approved a miracle attributed to the intercession of Pope Paul VI. ; But that doesn't make it official, just yet. The Prefect of the Congregation, Cardinal Angelo Amato will present the cause to the Pope and wait for its approval or denial. ; The case involves a five month old baby who was inexplicably cured in the womb. The mother's amniotic sac burst open and doctors told her, her baby would have serious birth defects, perhaps even die. The woman refused and abortion and prayed to Pope Montini. ; The baby was born at eight months, completely healthy. The healing took place in 2001 in the U.S. As Pope, Benedict XVI recognized the heroic virtues of Pope Paul VI back in 2012. ; If approved by Pope Francis, his beatification could take place in October, when the synod on the family takes place in the Vatican. Ironically, it was Paul VI himself who first introduced the Synod of Bishops. ; AC/KLH ; CTV ; JM -BN ; Up: YJA
