    Pope Francis: ‘Pius XII’s Cause for beatification has stalled’ (Catholic Herald)

    Pius XII file stalled because no miracle (ANSA)

    Beatification not close for Pope Pius XII: Vatican spokesman (CWN, 6/17/08)

    Miracle claimed through intercession of Pope Pius XII (CWN, 7/4/11)

    I have been following this story. I just do not get it. MY guess is Pope francis is buying time on this. He needs to release all Vatican archives. There are already solid source he helped save 400K Jews in Nazi Europe. Padre Pio saw Pope Pius XII in heaven too

    I always thought the miracle was needed for sainthood, not beatification.

    My understanding is there are recorded miracles already. I read so much on the internet. I have to be careful that my source is reliable. There are lies on the internet.
