I don’t believe in miracles. I’ve always thought that they only take place in religious people’s imaginations. But my views aren’t important here: What matters is that Floribeth Mora believes in miracles.
Mora, 50, of Costa Rica, was diagnosed in 2011 with a brain aneurysm that could have led to paralysis or death. Mora said that after receiving the grim diagnosis, she went home and prayed that Pope John Paul II, who died in 2005, would heal her. Then she went to sleep. When she awoke, she said she heard John Paul’s voice telling her:
“Stand up. Don’t be afraid.”
