Pope John Paul II on the Way to Sainthood

Hosted by

A French nun diagnosed with Parkinson's disease prayed to Pope John Paul II after his death. She wrote his name on a piece of paper and, the next day, she woke up cured. Pope Benedict XVI said today that meets the standards for a miracle and beatification, the first step toward sainthood. But critics have raised questions about the miracle itself and the fast track to sainthood for a popular and conservative church leader. John Allen covers the Vatican for the National Catholic Reporter.
