In other news, those who came to the Friday Night Rosary on July 27 will remember a young mother who brought her baby in search of Our Lord's healing. Before the mass and rosary, the community gathered around and everyone prayed along with Irv for Our Lady of America's intercession on behalf of this very fragile child. Almost 200 people were gathered around this little baby and his family.
Well, we received a report just last week that this same little baby who was brought to Sylvan Springs for a healing back on July 27 due to a hole in his 8 week old heart is now doing fine. The doctors determined the hole was no longer there (through no efforts on their part). Although they had no real answer as to how this could happen, they determined that the little boy should go home with his young mother and grow up to rides bikes and do all the stuff boys do.
I guess the news isn't all bad!
Pray for peace.
