VATICAN CITY, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Pope Benedict XVI formally credited a miracle to his predecessor, paving the way for Pope John Paul II to be beatified May 1, the Vatican said Friday.

The Vatican said the late John Paul II miraculously cured a nun who reportedly had Parkinson's disease, the BBC reported.
