March 5 - Our Lady of Healing (II)



Mary † Virgin † Mother

One of these miracles involved a certain man who lived in the county of Kilkenny, whose arm had been withered from birth so that he was unable even to move it. One night, in a dream, it seemed as though the Mother of God appeared to him and suggested that he journey to Waterford and visit her image which was then preserved in St John’s Hospital. The vision promised that if he did so, his arm would be fully restored. On awakening he decided to comply with the suggestion. Later that same day he arrived in Waterford. He first visited the Reverend Nicholas Fagan so that he could tell him the reason for his visit, but the priest suggested that he wait until the next day, when he could celebrate Holy Mass and recommend his cure to God.

The next morning the man and a considerable number of Catholics assembled in the oratory, where Reverend Fagan offered the Holy Sacrifice. At the moment of the Elevation, the man realized that his hand and arm were suddenly and perfectly cured. Not wishing to cause a disturbance at that moment by declaring what had happened, he held his peace until the end of the Mass. He then raised his arm, now as healthy and whole as the other, and proclaimed his cure to all present.

4th-Jul-2013 03:42 pm - St Martin de Porres for our pets


When I have a sick pet or pray for one, I always ask St Martin de Porres to intervene for me with healing. St Martin is one of my favourite saints. I have posted about him before, and I will include some more links below. St Martin started, with his sister, one of the very first dog and cat hospitals in the New World. One of the miracles attributed to St Martin was the bringing back to life of a dog which had been beaten to death. St Martin ate no meat and could not bring himself to use poisons around mice. He talked to them about their mischief in chewing holes in the church vestments, and they agreed to remain outside the church so Martin could feed them himself every day.

From Wikipedia: 'Juan Martin de Porres was born in the city of Lima, in the Viceroyalty of Peru, on December 9, 1579, the illegitimate son of a Spanish nobleman, Don Juan de Porres. His mother was a freed slave from Panama, of African or possibly part Native American descent, named Ana Velázquez.

He was noted for work on behalf of the poor, establishing an orphanage and a children's hospital. He maintained an austere lifestyle, which included fasting and abstaining from meat. Among the many miracles attributed to him were those of levitation, bilocation, miraculous knowledge, instantaneous cures, and an ability to communicate with animals.'

PRAYER TO ST. MARTIN de PORRES

Most humble Martin de Porres, whose burning charity embraced not only thy needy brethren, but also the very animals of the field, splendid example of charity, we hail and invoke thee! From that high throne which thou dost occupy, deign to listen to the supplications of thy needy brethren that, by imitating thy virtues, we may live contented in that state in which God has placed us, and, carrying our cross with strength and courage, we may follow in the footsteps of Our Blessed Redeemer and His most afflicted Mother, to reach at last the Kingdom of Heaven through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
