Vatican City, Oct 3, 2019 / 04:27 am
The Vatican announced Thursday approval of a miracle attributed to Venerable Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski, the former primate of Poland known for his heroic resistance to Communism.
The miracle involved the healing of a 19 year-old woman from thyroid cancer in 1989. After the young woman received the incurable diagnosis, a group of Polish nuns began praying for her healing through the intercession of Cardinal Wyszynski, who had died himself of abdominal cancer in 1981.
In the 30 years since her complete healing through Wyszynski's intercession, the woman has experienced no tumor remission, a spokesperson for the Polish Bishops' Conference told CNA.
With the Vatican approval of the miracle, Venerable Cardinal Wyszynski can now be beatified.
