The Pope beatified a Croatian nun, Marija "The Crucified" Petkovic today. Here's her miracle:

The Vatican has authenticated a miracle attributed to Petkovic -- the saving of a Peruvian navy submarine struck by a Japanese fishing boat in 1988 just off Peru's seacoast. A junior officer praying to the nun for help managed to prevent the sub from sinking and rescued sailors trapped deep in the hold.
