The Miracles of Pope John Paul II

by Karen Topakian

Pope John Paul II even in his death seems to be moving at a fast pace. The Providence Journal declared that he’s on the fast track. To sainthood.

Pope Benedict appears determined to grant him a seat at the large table of more than 10,000 saints.

Along with people who suffered the slings and arrows of torture. Who healed the sick and comforted the dying. Who served as exemplary models and extraordinary teachers.

Pope John Paul II’s three miracles, requirements for sainthood, include curing the sick with a recovery that is sudden, complete permanent and inexplicable by doctors.

But I think the biggest miracle he performed was not seeing or addressing the child sexual abuse by priests and its cover-up. Taking place right before his very eyes.
