Is John Paul’s Sainthood in Jeopardy?

Oh boy, the miracle that supposedly fast tracked pope John Paul II’s canonization has hit a little bit of a stumbling block. The nun who was allegedly cured of Parkinson’s disease after writing his name on a piece of paper is sick again. Sister Marie Simon-Pierre was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2007 but claimed it suddenly vanished after writing his name. Awkward. Hmm, no word yet from the Vatican on whether this will affect John Paul’s beatification (one of the steps to becoming a saint)  planned for October.
