THE HEALING BY JESUS (THROUGH
FR. ROBERT DEGRANDIS, S.S.J.)

My name is Xxx Xxxxx. Approximately 8 to 10 years ago, my brother and I attended Father DeGrandis' Healing Mass at St. Henry Catholic Church, Bridge City, Texas. I went there to try to get a healing from a neck problem I was experiencing.

During Communion, as I was walking to receive Communion, I began feeling a burning and nagging sensation in my left breast. I had no idea what was going on and began feeling annoyed by it. After I received Communion, and went back to my pew, the feeling was still nagging at me.

I couldn't imagine what was happening. After Communion, Father DeGrandis announced that there was healing going on during Communion; he stated that four women should have felt some sort of burning sensation in one or both of their breasts, you have just been healed of Breast Cancer. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I leaned over to my brother and whispered that I felt that.

Father DeGrandis asked that the four women raise their hand. I became scared and overwhelmed at what I was experiencing. My brother kept nudging me to raise my hand, but I couldn't; three women raised their hand. Father DeGrandis said that there was someone else. I couldn't do it.

Well, time has gone by and I haven't given too much thought about this incident. Just recently, conversation has come up about healing. I have not shared this story with too many people, but felt that I could with some. Someone told me that I should try to contact Father DeGrandis to let him know that I was the fourth woman.

So, now, for some reason I feel compelled to let Father DeGrandis know that I felt scared to raise my hand, but I am grateful for whatever type of healing God placed in my body that day. I'm sure Father DeGrandis has had so many Healing Masses he doesn't remember that afternoon at St.Henry's in Bridge City, Texas. With much gratitude because there is a history of breast cancer in my family, (aunt and sister), I give thanks to God and thanks to Father DeGrandis' gift of healing.
