  • A few weeks after his death, Pope Benedict XVI said he would rush his cantinixation, disregarding the mandatory waiting period
  • For his first miracle, Benedict claimed he had cured a French Nun of Parkinson's disease.
  • Then a few months later, Sister Marie Simon Pierre claimed she woke up and suddenly was healed after praying to John Paul who also had Parkinson's.
  • A group of theologians and doctors and they all agreed it was a miracle because of the intercession and there was no evidence of medicine helping them.
  • His beatification was the fastest in modern times, and he would be honored within his own diocese
  • Finally for his second miracle Floribeth Mora Diaz said after praying to John Paul she was cured, without medical reasoning, of a brain aneurysm when doctors only have her a month to live.
