From the blog of the intrepid Andrea Tornielli comes this note about the possible approval of a miraculous healing through the intercession of Ven. John Paul II:
In Il Giornale today there was published the news of the upcoming apporoval, on the part of the “medical team” of the Congregaton of the Causes of Saints, of a miracle attributed to the intercession of John Paul II, the healing of a French sister with Parkinson’s.
In additon to approval by the medical specialists, the dossier on the miracle (positio super miro), was also approved by the theologians before the end of 2010. In these last days the folder describing the healing came to the cardinals and bishops called to give their final judgment before it is presente to Benedict XVI.
The plenary meeeting of cardinals is foreseen for the middle of this month. If they also, as is foreseeable, approve the positio on the miracle, Angelo Card. Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, could go to the Pope to ask him for the promulgation of the decree for the recognition of the miracle. As you may remember, Benedict XVI on 19 December 2009, already approved the heroic virtues of John Paul II. At that point, the beatification of Papa Wojtyla will be only a question of the date.. It is still possible that this would happen next summer, or it could even be in October.?
