the Catholic Church is giving credit to their pope for this mircle, when the credit goes to God! and not to man. the man cannot do anything without God.
This is like saying that Moses split the Red Sea, when it was God who did that.
It is up to God who is a saint not man. Let God decide and judge.

Roman Catholics give people Sainthoods not to elevate them to the same level as God, but to thank them and recognise the good work they did for God on His earth.

Pope John Paul II is not being worshipped, he is being recognised for the wonderful work he did for God. May he rest in peace.

All people can and do good works for God, and many in secrecy, that's how it should be, between the person and God, why should ONE person be singled out more than another.
Give thanks to God and to the person.

she's still going to die of old age or something, we all have to die of something,
The greastest miracle is when someone remains faithfull even through sufferings, saddness, difficulties in life.
This kind of faith lasts forever.

Well, I'm glad if anyone is cured of an illness, but do you notice that they always seem to find a miracle-on-demand?

Nobody will cure my PMR. I must be praying to the wrong saint.

I don't know what PMR is, but God certainly does. and I can pray for you. That the Lord will give you peace and strength to carry whatever load had been given to you. Remember, if it doesn't kill you , it will make your stronger. and be and inspiration for others. now THAT deserves sainthood.

benny hinn performs for the sake of money,
I didn't say that the pope was legit, but to be a pope, you have to have some faith at least. I have to give the pope some credit, it's not easy leading the worlds Catholics.

Sheryl.......Gabriel Giffords had a bullet shot through her brain and is a practicing JEW, yet everyone says its a "MIRACLE" that she is alive, yet she doesn't even believe in jesus. Christians seem to believe miracles only happen to them. I don't think so!(lol)

Texas pride.........Its not just Benny who performs miracles. Its all the evangelists. The tens of thousands of people who cram into their services every week can't be wrong!

Benny Hinn is one of those heartless people who preys of the vulnerable. I know of a woman who went to one of these "healing" sessions. She stopped taking medication for her heart problems because she was so despterate to get better, and thought she had been cured. She died three days later... Sad.
