Pope John Paul I, whose pontificate lasted only 33 days, will be blessed, after Francis approved the decree that recognizes a miracle through his intercession and related to the healing of an Argentine girl.
Albino Luciani was born in 1912, was elected pope on August 26, 1978 and died unexpectedly 33 days later, so his pontificate was one of the shortest in history.
The miracle for which Luciani will be proclaimed blessed refers to the supposed unexplained healing of an Argentine girl who suffered from a serious brain pathology.
The journalist and vice postulator of the cause for the canonization, Stefania Falasca, announced a few weeks ago in the religious newspaper “Avvenire” that the medical council that examined the case of the Argentine girl “ruled unanimously that the cure it was scientifically inexplicable. ”
Albino Luciani’s cause for canonization was opened in November 2003, twenty-five years after his death, and ended in November 2017 with the decree sanctioned by Pope Francis, which proclaimed the heroic virtues of John Paul I.
At the end of November of that same year, the diocesan investigation begun in 2016 in the Argentine diocese of Buenos Aires in which the “miracle” was examined through the intercession of Pope Luciani in 2011 also ended. So that Pope Luciani was later declared a saint his intercession would need to be proven in a new miracle.
