Healing Testimonies

We hope that by compiling these testimonies it will be clear that what the Lord has been doing with healings will be to His Glory.  The Miracle Healing Service Ministry Team has sensed that it builds faith to give a brief summary of the many things the Lord has done rather than highlighting just a few healings in greater depth.

We have also listened to feedback from attendees at earlier Miracle Healing Services that some earlier recordings of healing testimonies were hard for people to understand, partly because of technical issues when the original recordings were being made, such as with video and sound system problems, echoes in churches, etc.  In addition, people who had just experienced a healing were often very emotional or had problems speaking into a microphone so that they sometimes they could not explain what happened in an audible, clear and concise way. Thus summarizing some of what the Lord has been doing is our goal.

These are a few of the many testimonies we have received about the Lord's healing actions in the Miracle Healing Services.

Priest's mother healed of severe strokePriest's mother had severe strokeFr. Austin is Bob's confessor and spiritual director.  He received word that has mother had suffered a stroke and was unconscious in a University Medical School hospital in Africa, and that medical expectations for her were very poor.  He prayed for his mother and, knowing that the Lord had answered Bob's prayers for healing in others, he asked Bob to pray for her. Shortly afterwards, he received word that some nurses walked into her room and found her out of her bed and moving about the room  They were amazed.  Her recovery then moved along rapidly, and she went home  soon after.  A few months later Fr. Austin was in Nigeria and walking with his mother to a scheduled follow-up medical visit.  Several doctors saw her with him and told him, "having seen your mother when she was admitted with the stroke and seeing her now, there is no doubt that there is an all powerful God!"

Diabetic foot healedBob met Francis in Africa and noted that he was limping very badly. When he asked if he could pray with him, he pulled up his pants leg, revealing a red leg, swollen to three times normal size with a large open and infected ulcer, a complication of his diabetes. Knowing that such wounds often lead to an amputation, Bob's faith level was not very high since he had never seen that sort of thing be healed by prayer. But he did pray with him.

Overnight there was a dramatic improvement of the left leg so that Francis was able to drive with Bob and several others to the two Shrines of the Ugandan Martyrs. During the long drive, Bob prayed again and again over his leg, and it kept getting better throughout that day.  Again in Africa five months later Francis described his leg: "better than the right one"! Now two years later, mutual friends report that he continues to have no problems of any sort.

Trigeminal Neuralgia healedShe had had several months of worsening Trigeminal Neuralgia, which she described as "feeling like an ice-pick in the eye" and "much worse than childbirth".  She went to several neurologists who prescribed medications, but things only got worse.  She is a devout Christian and many prayers had been offered for her healing, but nothing changed until she attended the Miracle Healing Service at the Basilica at her pastor's recommendation.  During that service all pain totally disappeared and never returned.  She tells a whimsical story about calling to cancel her appointment with a nationally renowned university professor.  The secretary asked for the reason for the cancellation. When told Jesus healed me,  there was in incredulous, "What was that?"  After repeating that Jesus healed her, there was just a click on the line as the secretary simply hung up on her...

Brain Tumor - thought to be cancer - HealedA year ago a nurse in Bob's hospital requested prayer with him,  explaining that she had been having extreme headaches. A CT and MRI  revealed a tumor which had been diagnosed by a university professor as brain cancer based upon the tumor's appearance. Before a final conclusion, she had one last test the next day.  Bob's faith was less than the size of a mustard seed, but he did have the faith to pray with her. She indicated that she felt God's incredible peace come to her with the prayer.  Two days later Bob received word that all headache was gone and the tumor had totally disappeared.  Since then she has experienced a spiritual revolution in herself and sees the Lord working in her family and in her dealings with ward patients.  Bob ran into her stepping off elevator recently. Her whole family is being spiritually transformed, and she shared some amazing details about how Jesus is changing everyone's life. What an amazing story, even bigger than the brain tumor!!

Blindness from Macular Degeneration HealedThis woman had TWO healings. She testified to the total healing of her severe back and leg pain, and she indicated she would go the next day to a hardware store with cement floors that always greatly exacerbated her pains. She did so and there was still no pain.

She also had a dramatic improvement in her vision at the same healing service, but did not testify to that immediately. She later told us that for five years she had macular degeneration and was legally blind in one eye, and the other eye was almost as bad. But when she went to the hardware store she could read the fine print on the cash register receipt. She reported that she had a scheduled eye exam with her ophthalmologist a month later, and after an examination that confirmed much improved vision and looking over several test results, the doctor was heard to say, "very interesting, very interesting!" She then told her patient that she needed to check with other doctors to see if any of them had ever seen anything like what happened to her. After a year of follow-up eye exams, the doctor apparently was confident that the vision was not about to reverse back to what it had been and now she has a driver's license after years of not being able to drive.

A woman with severe pain in her wrist came to one of the healing team members on a Sunday. She explained that on the prior Thursday she broke her wrist so badly that  x-rays indicated a need for surgical repair. All pain went away at the time of prayer, and when she went to the hospital for surgery two days later, the clinical exam was normal, and repeat x-rays also were  normal.  Surgery was therefore canceled.

Although the original x-rays were not available, this is an x-ray of a normal wrist x-ray to commemorate what the Lord did for her.

 

Lupus Completely Healed over 3 days - able to move arm as 1st sign.This woman had been having progressive stiffness in almost every joint in her body, making it almost impossible to walk or move her arms.  Her doctor diagnosed Lupus, based on his exam and lab test. After prayer she was now able to move her arms over her head, something she had not been unable to do for months.  She said that she was confident that the arm motion was just a "down-payment" on her total healing. Over the next forty eight hours all joint stiffness disappeared and she returned to NORMAL.  Her Doctor recently proclaimed "You don't have Lupus". The picture of the hand over her head was the first day and the inset photo was taken six months later, when she was absolutely normal.

Brother-in-law's heart healed.At a local prayer meeting Bob was asked to pray for a woman's brother-in-law in Africa.  She explained that he was a physician (cardiologist) who had been having two weeks of excruciating chest pain and severe shortness of breath .He had been told he needed a heart transplant and would need to be air-transported to another country to have surgery.  He was scheduled to have a cardiac catheterization the day after the prayer meeting.  She asked to be prayed with in proxy for her brother-in-law.  In her testimony she said she heard the words that when they did the cardiac cath. "everything would be normal".  The next day he had a totally normal heart catheterization; during the test all chest pain and shortness of breath totally disappeared. He is now totally normal and back at work as a physician.

Arthritis healedA man said he came seeking healing for his sister and it happened to him.  He said he had  "pretty bad" arthritis in both shoulders and had a fall three months ago that had injured his right shoulder. Since the fall it was impossible to raise his arm to the side. After prayer, he could do what he couldn't do before, lifting his arm to the side high above his head.

Severe Liver damagge from Hepatitis C healed.A nurse with Hepatitis C for over three years had taken medications with no result. All blood tests for liver enzymes were very elevated indicating severe loss of normal liver tissue.  After the MHS at St Thomas More, she asked for her blood tests to be repeated, despite her doctor telling her it was futile. This time the liver enzymes were "absolutely normal". One year later she said that the liver enzymes remain normal, which was interpreted as  either a new functioning liver had formed or, less likely, old liver cells began to work. However some Hepatic C viruses were found in her blood. At that later time there was a brand new treatment that doctors gave her and all viruses disappeared.

Bob pondered this strange set of circumstances and he sensed that the Lord was just smiling about his mysteries, but that only he could create new liver. However, as with all medical care, God delights in sharing his healing with his children, saving the easier healing to medicine...             (See Sirach 38)            No photograph available

Healings of HearingOne man identified himself as a Catholic Deacon who himself is involved in healing ministry.  He often wore a hearing aid in one ear but had problems with both ears.  At the Miracle Healing Service at St Thomas More he noted a definite improvement in hearing and took out his hearing aid.  He was able to repeat back whispers without hearing aids.

At the same Healing Service, a woman who was deaf in  her left ear as a result of many ear infections as a child, was suddenly able to hear in that deaf left ear - even whispers.

Kidney Cancer healedA woman with kidney cancer and scheduled to have kidney removed a few days later came to a Miracle Healing Service. She was deep within a pew where no healing team member could reach her, but those around her prayed for her when she identified a need for cancer.  She began crying because of the spiritual experience, and as a result we obtained contact information.  She went ahead with scheduled surgery a few days later and was told they could not explain it, but not a single cancer cell was found.  We called a few months later and learned this result. She had not thought to phone us and let us know. No photograph available.

Problems related to Pregancy HealedStory of TWO WOMEN and pregnancy:

A woman in danger of premature delivery (13 weeks early) had been referred to  a high risk Obstetrician. A friend held her need in proxy prayer at the MHS at St Thomas. Her mom knew the timing of the healing service and was with her at the time of the proxy prayer. When the mom noted a sudden change in her appearance, the daughter immediately confirmed that she felt a sudden change, like lifting of a 30 pound weight that had been pressing down upon her. Everything seemed to change from that moment. The next day, the high-risk OB said there were no longer any signs of premature delivery. She ultimately delivered a healthy baby at full term.

A  different woman, who was unable to conceive over a long time came to a MHS . She had had surgery and was told she had extensive scar tissue that would make it very hard to get pregnant. During the service she sensed something was happening, and shortly after she discovered she was pregnant and went on to have a normal delivery.
