BOLZANO, Italy, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- An Italian bishop said he is investigating a reported resurrection miracle carried out by a nun in the 1960s.
The bishop of Bolzano said he is looking into whether Sister Lucia Ripamonti performed a miracle in bringing a 6-year-old girl back to life following a car crash in 1967, ANSA reported Tuesday.
The girl, Irene Zanfino, is now a mother of three children.
A confirmation of the miracle would move Ripamonti a step closer to beatification, the third of four steps in the Roman Catholic Church's canonization system.
