I WANTED TO SHARE THIS STORY SO THAT MY KIDS WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER IT
When I was 4 years old, my mom and dad took me to a Catholic Charismatic Conference in Michigan. There was a well known Sister, named Sr. Briege McKenna, who was blessed with a gift.
Sr. Briege Mckenna
Jesus healed the sick through her laying hands on them and praying. My mom and dad brought me to the conference in hopes that Sr. Briege would lay hands on me so that Jesus might choose to heal me of my CF. My parents have always showed so much faith in our Lord, laying everything at His Feet, but at the same time, they have always desired Christ Will above all...but as Jesus has exhibited to us through holy Scripture, He wants us to ask Him for special blessings or healings, as this shows our undying Faith in Him.
I don't really remember this experience but I have been told of it numerous times. Mother Angelica was also at this conference....Boy, I wish that I could remember being in the presence of these holy apostles of Christ.
During the last day of the conference, 3 people were called to the front to be prayed over by Sr. Briege.....One of them was me!!!!
My daddy took my hand and began walking me down the stairs of the auditorium to the front. On my way down, I tripped and fell on the stairs....and being only 4 years old, I began to cry.
Sr. Briege, stopped what she was saying and exclaimed to the crowd, "I am praying right now for that little child who is crying." I heard her say this and yelled out, "Daddy...that's me, I have been healed!"
Well, I was lead down the stairs as my dad consoled me and Sr. Briege did in fact pray over me for my healing. Here is the amazing part.....Sr. Briege came and spoke 2 weeks ago in front of a Catholic group that Jeremy and I are in (Legatus). I couldn't wait to meet her and introduce myself.....not that she would remember me, but I wanted to thank her so much for praying over me, so many years ago.
