Blessed John Paul II one step closer to canonization

jpii-2Vatican insiders report that a second miracle has been approved in the cause for Blessed John Paul II’s canonization.  The Congregation for the Causes of Saints reportedly approved the miraculous healing of a Costa Rican woman through the intercession of Blessed John Paul II, a healing that was approved by doctors as having no natural explanation.

The late pope was beatified on May 1, 2011 after a French nun, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, was miraculously cured of Parkinson’s disease through his intercession. After the confirmation of a second miracle by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, all that is left in the canonization process is the approval of a commission of cardinals and bishops and the final signature of Pope Francis.

There is speculation that Pope Francis may canonize him on October 20 of this year.
