Feast of The Queenship of Mary Miraculous Healing?
The following letter is submitted for your discernment. The young woman is still pain free and her entire family is helping document her case for further study.
"Bring me my children....."
On Wednesday, August 23, 2007 I received a miracle in Rome City, Indiana. My good friend that I have known for about thirteen years took me there. He was telling me all about Rome City, and I was intrigued. When he mentioned the Good Friday well I blurted out, "Let's go right now." We hopped in the car and drove the sixty miles from South Bend. I'm so happy we did.
I did not go out to Rome City thinking I would receive a miracle. I just wanted to be in such a miraculous place where Mary's presence fills the air.
My friend and I drank from the well. I was doing this to taste this "amazingly, sweet, pure water" that I had heard so much about. When we were standing by the well, my friend asked me about the pain in my wrist and foot and my migraines. I told him that I deal with these pains because that is my only option.
I won't go into too much detail, but I have (HAD!) Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. This is an extremely painful disorder, causing pain to remain even after injuries heal. I've had terrible pain for over seven years. I'm 21 years old, meaning I've had this pain for 1/3 of my life. In those seven years I've had six major surgeries, and over 35 surgical procedures, for this condition. Until the Feast of the Queenship of Mary (Wednesday, August 22nd) I was in constant pain. If someone touched my wrist or foot it would become especially painful. I've also had severe migraines, resulting in being hospitalized (sometimes for as long as a week) at least six times.
We went to Holy Family Hill (POUND THE HILL!) to pray a Rosary, and while there I saw the sun spinning. It was a beautiful experience. While walking back to the car I blurted out, "Let's go back to the well."
When my friend and I were drinking from the spring, he told me to dunk my wrist, foot, and head in the water. I was scared to death because the water is ice cold, and I knew it was going to kill my wrist. At first I was scared and doubted, and didn't dunk. A second time my friend told me to dunk in the water. This time I wetted my hand and washed with the water, but did not dunk. A third time my friend told me to dunk in the water, and this time I didn't hold back. I plunged my whole arm into the water.
As I did it my friend asked me, "Do you believe that Jesus Christ, working through Mary, can heal you?"
I responded, "Yes."
He asked me again, "Do you believe that Jesus Christ, working through Mary, can heal you?"
This time I responded, "Yes, I really do believe that Jesus can heal me through Mary and this water."
It ended up that the water did not hurt my wrist. On the contrary, I could touch my wrist without pain!!!!!! This was the first time in SEVEN years that I could do this. I forgot what it was like to be pain FREE! My foot doesn't even have pain in it either. Also, I did NOT even get a migraine Friday when it rained.I use to always get them when it rained.
I cannot thank God enough for this miracle. I have been granted this miracle and want to share it with the world. I tell anyone and everyone that I have been with. I am still in shock with what happened two days ago. Blessed be God forever.
When I first wrote this I was worried that I didn't mention God enough, but now I realize that God is in every word of this story. I used to think that miracles were for 'other people', and happened in 'other places' likes Europe. Now I know that miracles are for everybody, even people like me, and happen right here in Indiana. Blessed be God forever.
