Nun's Cure Being Studied in John Paul II's Cause

Postulator Says Diocesan Phase of Process Still Ongoing

ROME, MARCH 31, 2006 ( The postulator of Pope John Paul II's cause of beatification says the case of a French nun's apparent cure from Parkinson's disease is being scrutinized.

"Two months exactly after the Holy Father's death, following prayers raised by her whole community, these symptoms disappeared instantly and completely," said Monsignor Slawomir Oder.

The case being probed as a possible miracle linked to John Paul II, who suffered from Parkinson's himself.

Monsignor Oder, meanwhile, said that it's not possible to tell when the diocesan phase of the cause of beatification will close.

In a communiqué from the Vicariate of Rome, where the cause is being handled, Monsignor Oder denied news reports that the diocesan phase of the process was about to close. "The rumors are totally unfounded," he said.

Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the vicar for Rome, initiated the diocesan phase last June 28.

The postulator said a part of the diocesan phase will close Saturday in the Archdiocese of Krakow. This part "has consisted in listening to witnesses in the Polish tongue which the tribunal of the diocese of Rome has considered appropriate to hear in Poland, outside its see," explained Monsignor Oder.

In statements on Vatican Radio today, the postulator said that the cause has three key tasks: to continue interviewing witnesses, to gather documentation of the deceased Pope, and to analyze a reported miracle.
