Beatification ceremony of John Paul II

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 2 May 2011

The late Pope, John Paul II, has been officially beatified at a ceremony at the Vatican, just six years after his death. The French nun, Marie Simon-Pierre's apparently miraculous cure from Parkinson's disease formed part of the case for the late Pope's beatification, which is a prelude to sainthood.
