Pope John Paul I will be beatified


The Vatican announced Wednesday that Pope John Paul I, the Italian pontiff who reigned for only 33 days before his death in 1978, will be beatified after a miracle was attributed to him, bringing him one step closer to sainthood. Pope Francis authorized a decree that recognized a first miracle attributed to John Paul I, the mysterious healing of a sick young girl in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2011, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, which oversees the canonization process, said in a statement.
