The Vatican has launched a judicial inquiry into the case of an Australian woman who claims to have been cured of inoperable lung cancer in 1993 through the intercession of saint-in-waiting Mary MacKillop.
Two doctors will examine the case for evidence of a second miracle needed for sainthood.
The first miracle, which led to the beatification of Mary MacKillop, was the cure of another woman of leukaemia in 1961.

The case before the Vatican is of an unidentified Australian woman who was given weeks to live in 1993 when her lung cancer proved untreatable.
The woman carried a picture of the Blessed Mary with a piece of the nun’s habit attached to it, pinned to her clothes, day and night.
The Josephite nuns say doctors could find no scientific explanation for her recovery.
