Did St John Paul II save a Formula 1 driver from a “miracle”?

Did Pope Saint John Paul II save a famous Formula 1 driver from a “miracle”?

Robert Józef Kubica is now 37 years old and the only Pole ever to have won a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

In 2007 he suffered a serious accident that he survived and in which more than one person said that Pope Saint John Paul II, who was still in the process of beating, miraculously intervened.

It was Kubica himself who distanced himself from the story that he was saved by the Polish Pope in a crash at the Canadian Grand Prix, in which he crashed on lap 27 at a speed of 230 kph.

“There are many things told in Poland that are not true. I don’t know who saved me, I don’t know if anyone saved me. I’m in one piece and it’s very positive”, Kubica told that occasion But according to ESPN.UK said.

accident of 2011

Four years later, on February 6, 2011, the story was very different. The Polish driver born in Krakow, the same city where St. John Paul II was born, suffered a new accident, this time at a rally in Andorra, Italy.

The 26-year-old pilot was still running with the inscription “John Paul II” on his helmet.

The accident caused him to undergo his first surgery seven hours a day, and several other procedures on his arms and legs due to serious injuries.

“My family came from Poland. I feel very sorry for my mother who has suffered a lot. I don’t have much pain because I faint, my comeback countdown will begin,” he said according to Fox Sports.

Relic of St. John Paul II

From the hospital where he was after the 6 February accident, Kubica asked Cardinal Stanisaw Dziewicz for the Polish Pope’s relics.

Cardinal Dziewicz, who had been John Paul II’s personal secretary for more than 40 years, placed a piece of cloth in a gold reliquary with a drop of John Paul II’s blood.

As reported by Polish TVN24 at the time, Kubica was given the remains and a clear recovery has been noted since.

The Polish cardinal said he hoped for a speedy recovery to Kubica and was confident that the relics of the then Blessed John Paul II would help him.

“Kubica comes from Krakow, he has fans there. I wish he would get well sooner. And I hand it over once again to the care of John Paul II”, the cardinal then said.

“I wish him too much confidence that it will help him recover and achieve more,” said the Polish Pope’s former secretary.

While in the hospital, Kubica also held a photograph of St. John Paul II, which was brought by his manager near his bedside.
