Dear Fr.Degrandis, I had the great opportunity to attend a healing mass of yours last week in Palm Beach Gardens at St. Ignatius. If it weren't for Marta I would have never have herd of the mass. Do you remember when you had some people come up to the altar who were in pain and had a cain or walker? There were 2 in particular that while they were being prayed over in which I got a vision. The first one was an older woman small in stature in which had a walker to aid her. The other was a woman in her 50's or early 60's who was taken to the side for more prayer. While praying for the first woman I saw Jesus standing just behind her his heart was exposed. And there was his divine mercy coming from it and penetrating her as she was being prayed over. The second woman the one that had a prayer team pray for her. While she was being prayed for Jesus was there for her too. He had a long beautiful white robe on. He had wrapped his arms around her and pulled her next to himself so that I couldn't see her because the gown covered her. This isn't the first time this has happened. I've seen Mary once and herd her on two different occasions. The week before my grandmother died and we didn't know she was going to. While at a prayer meeting it had gotten quiet I had closed my eyes and was just being quite. Then my heart started racing and I was in my grandmother's hospital room. She was lying in bed and surrounding the bed were these beautiful angels. They had the most beautiful pure soft white light or glow coming from them. It was so clear as if I was actually in the room with my grandmother. I left the prayer meeting before it was over and went into the perpetual adoration chapel and thanked God for letting me see the angels and for taking care of my grandmother. About a week and a half later she passed away in my mothers home. I have had other visions at different times it doesn't happen often and I am so humbled by every experience. My husband thinks I'm crazy and sometimes I second guess whether it is me and my imagination going crazy. But then I think about the vision and what was happening and I just know that I know it wasn't from me. I had had some experiences when i was a young girl that I know it was God protecting me he was with me. You see I pretty much stopped going to church for several years. It has been just in the past 5 years I've been going to mass and prayer meetings and such. And when these things happen it feels the same as it did when I was a kid. I never know when they are going to happen or if it will happen again. And I tend to keep these things to myself except for a few close friends and my mom. By the way what you said about praying for people right then and there wherever you happen to be. Well my friend has lead me in that direction. She does it all the time and said that I would be doing with others some day. Well she was right. I work at Wal-Mart and though I don't pray as often as I feel I really should with my co workers I have had some come to me and ask me to pray for them. Ruth had come to me a few months ago and asked me to pray for her. Her back was hurting and she wasn't sure if she was going to be able to work the day. So right there in the purses i put my hands on her and said a little prayer and she and I went back to our depts. to work. Later that day I herd she was looking for me. Well when she found me she thanked me for praying and said that within a few minutes she felt heat in her back and the pain had gone and she was able to work her shift with out pain. Just wanted to share that with you and get any feed back from you and what you think. May God Bless you, Lisa
