Pope John Paul II postulator wants miracle reports
Msgr Oder looks ahead to 'great day' of canonisation21 February, 15:11
Msgr Slawomir Oder, postulator of John Paul's canonisation cause, said on a new JPII website: "Let's not forget that beatification is only a stage, looking ahead to the great day when the Church, after recognising another miracle attributed to John Paul II, will be able to raise him to glory as a saint. "I therefore urge you to pray intensely and bring to the knowledge of the postulator, who is constantly vigilant, all those cases that can be attributed to the intercession of John Paul II". Benedict XVI, John Paul's successor, last month approved a miracle cure of a French nun with Parkinson's Disease, paving the way for a beatification that is set to bring to Rome the kind of crowds not seen since his death in April, 2005.
