Craine ROME, Italy, January 14, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Venerable John Paul II (1920-2005), a beloved model and leader to many in the pro-life and pro-family movement, is to be beatified on May 1st, the Vatican announced Friday. The announcement comes after the miraculous healing of a French nun was confirmed Tuesday by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Sr. Marie Simon Pierre Normand, a religious of the ‘Institut des Petites Soeurs des Maternites Catholiques’ who had suffered from Parkinson’s disease, was determined to have made a scientifically inexplicable recovery, which has been attributed by the Vatican to the late pope’s intercession.

The beatification decree, issued by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, describes John Paul II’s pontificate as “an eloquent and clear sign, not only for Catholics, but also for world public opinion, for people of all colour and creed.”
