Pope John Paul II Beatification Date?
The Pope has approved a miracle attributed to Pope John Paul II's intercession and is going forward with his beatification.
Italian news media have been reporting that in recent weeks Vatican-sponsored panels confirmed that a young French nun was miraculously cured of Parkinson's disease after praying to Pope John Paul II.
Benedict is expected to celebrate the beatification Mass himself, a much-needed bright spot in his papacy, which in recent months has been immersed in scandal.
What is the date of the beatification ceremony of Pope John Paul II? Will he also be named a saint?
