John Paul II 'may become saint this year' says cardinal

Rome, January 9 - John Paul II may be named a saint
sometime this year, a cardinal and close confidant to the late
pope said Wednesday.
"If not this year, it will be 2014," said Cardinal Giovanni
Battista Re. "Since John Paul II did more than one miracle, his
canonization will surely be recognized".
In 2011 John Paul was beatified, the first step towards
sainthood, six years after he died at age 84.
His successor Pope Benedict XVI sanctioned the
beatification after a Vatican commission officially attributed a
miracle to John Paul - the inexplicable recovery of a French
nun, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, from Parkinson's Disease through
the intervention of the late pope.
John Paul will have to be attributed with another miracle
before he can be canonized.
"I don't have enough information to say for certain he will
become a saint by the end of the year," added the cardinal, "but
I know that recently three or four of his miracles were being
examined to see which were the most 'solid'".
