Papa Z's Views and Comments
- Name: David Zampino
- Location: Wisconsin, United States
I am a convert to the Catholic Church after serving in ordained ministry for more than nine years in another denomination. I hold a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in historical theology, and another in systematic theology, and am currently working (very slowly) on my doctorate. I work in Christian Education and Formation and teach at the University level. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and eight great kids! When I'm not studying, reading, or blogging, I enjoy eating and drinking! Like Bilbo Baggins, I have been specializing in food for many years, and my table has a high reputation!

Today, at Noon, Rome time, his Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI has published the Decree for the Beatification of the Venerable Servant of God, Pope John Paul II (the Great).
The date of the Beatification has been set for May 1st, 2011 -- Divine Mercy Sunday.
The medically verified miracle? A French nun, after imploring the intercession of the late Holy Father, was instantaneously cured of Parkinson's disease -- the exact malady suffered by Pope John Paul II in his last years. The cure was immediate and permanent and has no medical explanation whatsoever.
Now Thank We All Our God!
