Costa Rican woman Floribeth Mora Diaz


Costa Rican woman Floribeth Mora Diaz poses near a statue of John Paul II after she speaking to the media about the miracle that set Pope John Paul II onto the road of sainthood at the Vatican April 24, 2014. Suffering a potentially fatal swelling in the brain, Costa Rican grandmother Floribeth Mora says a voice spoke to her through a photograph of the late Pope John Paul II, miraculously curing her and sealing the late pontiff's sainthood. Pope Francis in July 2013 had approved Mora's cure as the requisite second miracle for the sainthood of John Paul II, who led the Roman Catholic Church from 1978 to 2005. REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi
