I Need a Miracle

Vatican researchers have announced the discovery of an apparent “miracle” that they can credit to the late Pope John Paul II — the spontaneous and medically inexplicable “curing” of a nun with Parkinson’s disease.

Although the Church will not release the name of the nun in question, they say that she was cured of her Parkinson’s after praying to the Pope shortly after his death last year.

If this “miracle” is indeed confirmed by the Church, it would move John Paul II one step closer to being declared a saint.

So, for the record, just how many miracles does one to be become a saint?

A) Two
B) Three
C) Four
D) Thirteen

A) Apparently, two miracles is all one needs to become a saint. However, that miracle must be the result of prayers asking the dead Pope to intercede with God (prayers made to a Pope while he’s alive just don’t count).
