Rome, Italy, Jan 19, 2010 / 12:21 pm (CNA).- Some details of the case under investigation regarding a possible miracle attributed to Venerable Pope Pius XII have been made public.  The story features not just one former Pontiff, but two.

On Tuesday morning, Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli published an article in Il Giornale describing at length the situation which "mysteriously involves" John Paul II.

Tornielli reported that this case was brought to the attention of Benedict XVI shortly before he approved a measure on Dec. 19, 2009 venerating Pope Pius XII's life of "heroic virtue," whose cause had been on-hold for the previous two years.

In 2005, a teacher of 31 years of age was expecting her third child in the city of Castellammare di Stabia.  She began to have strong pains, which after many tests and a biopsy, signaled the presence of Burkitt's lymphoma.  The condition is typified by swollen lymph nodes, often starting in the abdominal region, and the cancer can spread to bone marrow and spinal fluid.  Not only was her health in danger, but that of her unborn child was also threatened.

The woman's husband first prayed for the intercession Pope John Paul II, who was then only recently buried in the crypt of St. Peter's.  It wasn't long before the Holy Father appeared to the woman's husband in a dream.  The spouse described to Tornielli what he saw that night, "He had a serious face.  He said to me, 'I can't do anything, you must pray to this other priest...'  He showed me the image of a thin, tall, lean priest.  I didn't recognize him; I didn't know who he might be."

I find the title of this thread an interesting twist on an article written to focus on the merits of Pope Pius XII.

I agree. A little sensationalism perhaps?

I can't see how I "twisted" anything by my label for this article.  It clearly states that the visionary said that JP II claimed that he was helpless to intercede for him and that the man should pray to Pope Pius XII for help.  I thought that it was a pretty strange story and I am almost sure that this miracle, whether real or not, will not be used by the Vatican to justify the beatification of Pius XII.  No Church would ever let a miracle be validated which cast a beloved figure who headed it for over a quarter century and who they are trying to canonize, in such an unfavorable light.  No, it doesn't say that JP II isn't in Heaven, but the way they portray him it is obvious that he is not seen as powerful an intercessor as Pius.
