Interesting that the article mentions an alleged miracle (appears to be disproven by a Harvard physician) because of one praying to a dead pope, but, as usual, The Associated Press, doesn't drill down to the underlying theological principles.
They never even answered why the RCC requires a miracle nor did they answer what is the biblical and historical support for this ancient practice, leaving the RCC appearing, again, to be an addled, dopey and brainless billion-person Christian organization.
I'm confident there will be many to whack this straw-man.

Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way ot Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. Jude 11
