Theologians approve miracle attributed to Pope Paul VI

Catholic World News - February 25, 2014

A panel of theologians has approved a miracle through the intercession of Pope Paul VI, according to Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa.

The theologians examined the miracle for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, after a group of physicians had earlier attested that the incident—the healing of a California child who was expected to be born with severe brain damage—was medically inexplicable. The child, born in the 1990s, is now a healthy adolescent.

The Vatican has not made any announcement about the reported miracle. That announcement would come only when the full Congregation of the Causes of Saints has certified the miracle, with the approval of Pope Francis. The certification of the miracle would clear the way for beatification of Pope Paul VI.
