Pope OKs crediting miracle to John Paul I on sainthood path

Source: ABC News

“Pope Francis on Wednesday approved the crediting of what was described as the miraculous healing of a child to the intercession of John Paul I, advancing the cause for sainthood for one of his predecessors who died 33 days after being elected pontiff in 1978. His signing off on the 2011 recovery in Argentina of a child makes possible John Paul I’s beatification, whose date will be later established by Francis. Cardinal Albino Luciani was elected on Aug. 26, 1978 and was found dead in his bed in his Vatican City apartment on Sept. 28 of that year. The Vatican said that the healing, of a 11-year-old girl, took place in Buenos Aires, the birthplace of the current pope, Francis.” (10/13/21)
