Vatican scrutinizing reported miracle, could lead to canonization of John Paul II

CWN - February 15, 2013

The Congregation for the Causes of Saints has asked a commission of medical experts to investigate a reported miracle that could lead to the canonization of Blessed John Paul II, according to Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa.

Evidence of the reported miracle was presented to the Vatican Congregation several weeks ago, and has now been passed along to the medical examiners. If the Congregation eventually concludes that the unexplained healing was a miracle, attributable to the intercession of the late Pontiff, it would fulfill the requirement for his canonization.
