Because The Roman Catholic Church Canonized him after he lived a demonstrably Faith-filled life by the standards in use back then, and after several (usually 3 these days) Miracles were attributed to him, either during his life or after his death, and could be attributed to John as a result of prayers to him for his intercession on behalf of the prayerful petitioner with God, resulting in a marked answer/ie: a miracle.
