Doctors Analyzing Alleged John Paul II Miracle

Tuesday, 07 Sep 2010 12:54 PM

The promoter in the case of Pope John Paul II's sainthood says doctors are still analyzing a supposed miracle attributed to him in which a French nun was allegedly cured from Parkinson's disease by praying to the late pope.

The Rev. Slawomir Oder said Tuesday that special care is being applied to the analysis to preclude any possible future doubts. A confirmed miracle is a condition for sainthood.

There have been reports that some of the doctors are not sure if the nun suffered from Parkinson's — the illness that also afflicted John Paul — or if she was wrongly diagnosed.

Pope Benedict XVI put John Paul on the fast-track for possible sainthood weeks after his 2005 death by waiving the customary five-year waiting period.
