Sister Marie Simon-Pierre Normand holds a glass reliquary containing the blood of the late Pope John Paul II during his beatification Mass in Saint Peter's Square. The late Pope John Paul moved a major step closer to sainthood on Sunday at a joyous ceremony that drew more than 1 million people. Normand suffered from Parkinson's disease but her inexplicable cure has been attributed to John Paul's intercession with God to perform a miracle, thus providing the grounds for his beatification.
