After Years of Praying to 'Main God' Didn't Work, Man Hits Miracle Lotto Jackpot with 'Newman'!

Catholic Tribunal Probes Claim of Miraculous Healing

from The Associated Press

BOSTON - Boston's Roman Catholic archdiocese has convened a secret tribunal to look into the case of a disabled church deacon who claims he miraculously regained his ability to walk.

The unidentified 60-year-old man was reportedly cured after praying to John Henry Newman, a 19th-century British cardinal who is being considered for sainthood.

Evidence of miracles is ordinarily required for Roman Catholic sainthood.

Newman was a prominent Anglican preacher who shocked Victorian England when he converted to Roman Catholicism. He was nominated for sainthood in 1958.

A priest who is advocating for Newman's canonization told The Boston Globe that the deacon had undergone an unsuccessful operation, but recovered his health and mobility after praying to Newman.
