A Different Miracle

I recently read a very touching and inspiring article at Guideposts, entitled A Perfect Child, written by Kathleen Lukens in 1994.

It is the story of a mother and child’s very special trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes in France – with a beautiful, perhaps unusual (?) but not really surprising outcome.  Our Lady, after all, is also the Queen of Peace. 

Mary, Seat of Wisdom

O happy Virgin,
you gave birth to the Lord;
O blessed seat of Wisdom,
you cradle in our hearts
the Spirit of your Son Jesus Christ.

  1. The Lord can work a miracle anytime, anywhere.. and I hope you don’t mind my saying so, but I think if I’d been the boy’s mom, I’d have asked a *cure* nonetheless, and if it didn’t come, it didn’t. The boy will end up living without his mom someday, and perhaps he would’ve chosen to be dipped in the water.
