The person him/herself does not have to perform miracles, but miracles (two?) have to be attributed to the intervention of the person. For instance, suppose someone is diagnosed with cancer, prays to God for the intercession of JPII for a cure, and after being examined by the doctors, is cleared of cancer. Then, that could be the basis for attributing a miracle to JPII.

It is not claimed that JPII ever created a miracle in his lifetime, although there has been arguments that UNI's defeat of Kansas three years ago should qualify.
