Possible Miracle For Blessed John Paul II

You may have seen this interview with Cardinal Amato, Prefect of the Congregation of the Causes of Saints, concerning Blessed John Paul II.  He tells the interviewer that a possible miracle, worked since his beatification in May, is now being examined and may be the one to see Blessed Pontiff canonised.  Of course the Cardinal is cautious and reminds us that they will not be rushing it, but will take their time, as they should. 

Depending on the nature of the healing, of which there are no details yet, and will probably be kept under wraps for some time, it could see Blessed John Paul, now co-patron of the Fraternity, raised to the altars as a Saint within a decade of his death, which will be a record.  We pray that all will go well.

For your devotion, the Fraternity's Litany to Blessed John Paul:

Lord have mercy,
Christ have mercy,
Lord have mercy

Mary, Mother of God,                pray for us
Mother of the Church,
Queen of all Saints, 

Blessed John Paul II,                 pray for us
Heroic Pastor, 
Witness to Hope, 
Mystical Pontiff, 
Teacher in Holiness, 
Defender of Life, 
Prophet of True Freedom, 
Father of the Young, 
Apostle of Mercy, 

V. Pray for us, Holy Pontiff, Blessed John Paul:
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

  1. There seems to have been unseemly haste to beatify in this case (one dubious miracle which the medical experts were uneasy about) and now testing the wind for reaction re his possible canonisation.I think there is an agenda behind all this.
