Pope John Paul's II Miracles

It was determined that Pope John Paul II has only one more miracle to go to meet the requirement for Sainthood.  Pope Benedict the XVI has approved the curing of Sister Simon-Pierre of Parkinson's disease, the same disease that Paul II suffered, as a miracle after she found herself cured upon waking from a dream about the dead Pope.  She and others had been praying to John Paul II to help her.  But I submit that another miracle is not required.  Cardinal Bernard Law, formerly the Archbishop emeritus of the Diocese of Boston resigned that office on Dec. 13, 2002 and immediately left for Rome to become  Archpriest of the Basilica de Santa Maria Maggiore, at the direction of John Paull II, allegedly only hours before Massachuettes State Troopers arrived with subpoeanas for his appearance before a Grand Jury investigating his part in the cover-up of child molestations.  Pretty miraculous in my opinion.
