Q.217

Beatification is one of the steps in the process of 'canonising' (or declaring a person as a "saint"), in the Christian religion. Recently, Pope John Paul II was beatified. During this ceremony, a vial of his blood (drawn during his last days) was used as one of the relics of the late Pope.

The honour of carrying this object was given to Sister Marie Simon-Pierre Normand, a French nun (seen in the picture). Why was she accorded this honour?
