Home Letters & Testimonials A wonderful happening
A wonderful happening

My father told me about a wonderful happening at the Shrine when he was a little boy. He used to bleed from his ears and have bad headaches. 

Early in the morning while they were in church, a lady came up to him and touched his ears and told him he would be ok. When his mother and father came back from lighting candles he told

them about the lady and what she said and did. They looked around but could not find the lady, or anyone else in the church.

My father never again had bleeding in his ears. His headaches went away as well. Though he was hard of hearing, he always felt Our Lady healed him.

I never knew what all this meant till I found God in my own life in August of 2007.
