The Vatican has announced that the beatification of Pope John Paul II will be on May 1, 2011. Typically a miracle needs to be attributed to the candidate for beatification and a French nun, Sister Marie Simon Pierre, was cured of Parkinson's Disease after praying to Pope John Paul II who also had the disease and ultimately died from it on April 2, 2005. The miracle was given unanimous consent by the Vatican medical panel and Pope Benedict XVI has signed off on it and set the date for beatification. Proof of another miracle is typically needed as well for the final step - canonization.
