Mexicans submit hundreds of testimonies regarding possible miracles by John Paul II

.- According to the official website for the beatification and canonization of John Paul II, hundreds of emails are pouring in from Mexico claiming miracles through the intercession of Pope John Paul II.  All such testimonies are under review by the beatification commission.

Speaking to the EFE news agency, Father Francisco Javier Sanchez, member of the Mexican Bishops’ Committee for the Causes of Saints, said that as time has passed the number of intercessions attributed to the late pontiff has grown but that the exact amount was not known.

The postulator of John Paul II’s cause of beatification, Msgr. Slawomir Oder, said recently that among the thousands of letters and emails his office has received, “hundreds are coming from Mexico.”

He said that for the moment many testimonies are considered simply as “graces,” because only after “very severe verifications” can they be classified as miracles.  

The official site for the late pope’s cause is http://www.vicariatusurbis.org/Beatificazione/
