Arrow Report: A miracle confirmed for John Paul IIís canonization process

Report: A miracle confirmed for John Paul II’s canonization process
Source: Catholic World Report


Leading Vaticanista Andrea Tornielli reports today that the Vatican’s medical experts have approved a miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed John Paul II, a major step forward for his cause for canonization.

Tornielli reports for La Stampa’s Vatican Insider:
It all happened in great secrecy, with maximum confidentiality. In January, the postulator of the cause, Mgr. Slawomir Oder, submitted a presumed miraculous healing to the Vatican Congregation for the Saints for a preliminary opinion. As it is known, after the approval of a miracle for the proclamation of a blessed, the canonical procedures include the recognition of a second miracle that must have occurred after the beatification ceremony.
Two doctors of the Vatican council had previously examined this new case, and both gave a favourable opinion. The dossier with the medical records and the testimonies was then officially presented to the Congregation, which immediately included the examination in its agenda. In the past few days it was discussed by a committee of seven doctors, the council (presided over by Dr. Patrick Polisca, Pope John Paul II's cardiologist), Pope Benedict XVI's personal physicians and now Pope Francis's. The medical council also gave a favourable opinion, the first official go-ahead by the Vatican, by defining as inexplicable the healing attributed to the intercession of the blessed Karol Wojtyla.
This is the overcoming of the first fundamental hurdle, given that the alleged miracle must now be approved by theologians and then by the cardinals and bishops of the Congregation, before being subjected to the Pope for the definitive "yes". In any case, the approval of the council is considered the most important step; in fact, neither the theologians nor the cardinals are involved in the clinical evaluations concerning the case.
While noting that discussions about a possible canonization date are “premature,” Tornielli speculates that if the miracle receives the necessary approvals John Paul II could be canonized as early as October. The late pope’s feast day is October 22

A second miracle is now being talked about. Here's a short excerpt from the article at Vatican Insider:

First the doctors okayed it and now the commission of theologians of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints has also approved the second miracle performed by John Paul II after his beatification. All that is needed now is for the Congregationís commission of cardinals and bishops to give their approval, in a meeting which should take place in the next few weeks.

Perhaps we'll hear more details soon.

I think two miracles are needed for full sainthood.

i think so too. So if that story is accurate -- and I have no reason to doubt it -- things are moving right along. I am curious though. I always like to hear the details.

Hard as it may be to prove, I believe the fall of the Soviet Union to be a third miracle.

Vatican theologians approve second miracle of John Paul II

LINK: Vatican theologians approve second miracle of John Paul II :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

Vatican City, Jun 19, 2013 / 12:19 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Theologians at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints have approved a second miracle granted through the intercession of Blessed John Paul II, moving him closer to being declared a saint.

ďThe proclamation of his sainthood needs only the approval of the commission of cardinals and bishops and the final signature of Pope Francis,Ē Italian news agency ANSA reported June 18.

Before Blessed John Paul II can be canonized, the Congregation must formally approve the miracle and present it to Pope Francis. Pope Francis would then promulgate and celebrate the canonization.

The miracle was reportedly approved by two doctors in April as having been a cure that cannot be explained in natural terms.

On April 2, Monsignor Slawomir Oder, postulator of the late pontiff's cause for canonization, told CNA that as a second miracle was sought, ďI chose a few cases and the Congregation for the Causes of Saints chose one of those, which they are currently evaluating.Ē

The Congregation for the Causes of the Saints studies each case rigorously, to determine that no scientific explanation for the miracle is possible and that there is a direct relation to the intercession of the possible saint in question.

Msgr. Oder had told Italian daily Avvenire that alleged miracles worked through Blessed John Paul II's intercession had taken place in Poland, Italy, Spain, the United States, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil.

Benedict XVI beatified him on May 1, 2011, after a French nun, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, was miraculously cured of Parkinson's disease through his intercession.

ANSA speculates that Pope Francis might canonize him on Oct. 20.

Blessed John Paul II died a little over eight years ago, on April 2, 2005. Since he was beatified, his memorial has been celebrated, in certain dioceses, on October 22, the anniversary of his installation as Bishop of Rome
