Praise the Lord; My name is Irudaya Mary and I am from Kumbakonam. I had come to this retreat with a heavy heart but God has made me
to rejoice through His miracle. I had been suffering with sores in both my legs for the past 11 years, with my legs swollen like elephantiasis,
and puss, water and blood oozing all the time.
I had taken various treatments in Chennai, Pondicherry, Bangalore, etc., but nothing has cured this. Unable to walk, and with continuous pain,
in addition to the stench of puss and blood, my life was like in hell. And obviously my family members were fed up.
Very recently, I had come to know about Fr. Stephen. I told my son about my wish to go to Dharmapuri for the retreat, and asked him money
for the trip. My son told that nothing has happened despite my going to church every day. Still he gave me Rs 1000, but with a condition that
I could come back home only if my legs were cured, or to go somewhere as he didn’t have money to spend for me.
Though I was frightened, I was praying to God to cure me atleast in this Ashram so that I could go back home. I was depressed as well but I didn’t
lose faith and throughout my journey, I prayed to Carmel Mother to take my legs and give me her legs. During counseling, Brother told that Lord
cured my legs. From that time onwards I was very anxious.
The disease which could not be cured for the past 11 years has got cured within these 4 days and, see, almost all the scars and burns have already
Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing my prayer. Praise the Lord; Praise the Lord; Halleluiah...!!!
