WASHINGTON — The late pope, John Paul II, is now closer to sainthood after the Vatican credited him with a second miracle.
Reuters reports that the Vatican’s commission of cardinals and bishops credited him for healing a woman in Costa Rica in 2011 as his second miracle.
His first? He asked God to cure French nun Sister Marie Simon-Pierre Normand of Parkinson’s disease and this led to him to be declared “blessed” by the Catholic Church.
The late Pope John Paul II could be canonized as soon as December in a ceremony for the Polish-born pontiff, which could be the quickest canonization in modern Catholic history.
