John Paul miracle woman cries describing cure

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -

A Costa Rican woman whose brain aneurysm disappeared after she prayed to Pope John Paul II has broken down in tears as she publicly spoke for the first time about the church-confirmed miracle underlying John Paul's case for sainthood.

   The Catholic Church presented 50-year-old Floribeth Mora and her doctor to reporters on Friday after Pope Francis approved the miracle needed to canonize John Paul II.

   With tears in her eyes, Mora described how she was sent home with pain medicine but no apparent hope for treatment, thinking she was going to die after her 2011 aneurysm diagnosis.

   She says a picture of the pope seemed to speak to her during the deceased pontiff's beatification, and her doctor says the aneurysm disappeared for no apparent reason.
