Sadly, canonization does not involve firing his rotting remains from a canon.
Can't find anything on this in recent news outlets, all I have is a newspaper (as in, printed on actual paper, wouldyoubelieveit) clipping.
Seems there's this dude from Colombia who was cured from Parkinsons after praying to JPII exactly once. How tremendously convenient.
He was diagnosed with Parkinsons after suffering a stroke little under a decade ago. In 2010, he recalled meeting JPII once for two minutes, payed and is now completely free of Parkinsons!
And a sevenheaded
college of doctors verified this (how exactly? one wonders) so now JPII is on the fast track to becoming Saint John Paul the Great
Now, why don't any of the millions of amputees pray to JPII and have the miracle happen on prime time TV? Or maybe JPII specializes in Parkinsons?
