“I came to tell you that you are healed”




In 1966, a sister of the Daughters of Charity, Sister Catherine, who had been seriously ill for months, was in the hospital of Naples, Italy, close to death. Everything had been tried to save her life, but in vain. On May 26, 1966, her sisters began a novena to Pope John XXIII whose cause for beatification had just opened.

On the third day of the novena, while the sisters were in the chapel, Sister Catherine, who was alone in her room, suddenly heard a man's voice calling her name. Frightened at first, she looked away. But soon she perceived a beautiful face by her bed, and a soft voice that spoke to her:

"Sister Catherine, you have petitioned me and so have your sisters. That is why I came to tell you that you are healed. Ring the bell and your sisters will see that you have completely recovered. You do not even have a fever anymore."

The sister rang and her companions came running. They saw that her temperature was below 37°C. Sister Catherine told them about the vision of Pope John she had had, adding that before he left he advised her to recite the Rosary every day.
