Dulce Nombre (Costa Rica) (AFP) - Call her the miracle lady on the hill -- one with a brain aneurysm whose healing was declared a miracle, clearing the way for the late John Paul II to become a saint. Floribeth Mora, a 50-year-old Costa Rican, has now become a sort of religious icon herself. Three years ago, doctors told Mora she had an untreatable brain aneurysm and sent her home to wait for death. On July 5 last year, Pope Francis called Mora's case a miracle, making it possible for John Paul II to be canonized on April 27.
