Jesus said to his Apostles:
“As you go, make this proclamation:
‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Cure the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse the lepers, drive out demons.
Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.
Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts;
no sack for the journey, or a second tunic,
or sandals, or walking stick.
The laborer deserves his keep.
Whatever town or village you enter, look for a worthy person in it,
and stay there until you leave.
As you enter a house, wish it peace.
If the house is worthy,
let your peace come upon it;
if not, let your peace return to you.
Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words —
go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet.
Amen, I say to you, it will be more tolerable
for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment
than for that town.” (Mat 10:7-15)
Meet the woman behind the miracle credited to John Paul II. “Mora, a Costa Rican mother, of four faced the world’s media to explain how her inexplicable recovery was a miracle that had led to the popular Polish pope being declared a saint. In 2011, Mora was suffering from persistent headaches and was told by doctors that her days were numbered. They said her aneurism was in a ‘delicate’ area and her only option was treatment in Mexico or Cuba, but her family could not afford it. The Doctors told me there was no sense to continue treatment because they had done everything and there wsa not much more we could do. They said I only had one month to live and there was no hope. Confined to bed, she lay holding a magazine with a cover photograph of the Polish pope in her home of Tres Rios de Cartago, 12 miles from the capital of San Jose. Her husband, Edwin urged her to pray. My greatest concern was not dying but concern what would happen to my children. When I woke up in the morning, I looked at the the magazine cover which showed Pope Wojyla with his arms outstretched. I felt a deep sense of healing. I heard a voice say to me, ‘Get up and don’t be afraid.’ I went to my husband in the kitchen and told him I was cured. I realized little by little the illness had been taken away.”
Remember to call upon the saints in Heaven to pray for you. May all the saints and angels in Heaven pray for you. Trust in their prayers.
