"You will be all right: Mary is here, she can see us"

The 68th unexplained healing in Lourdes was officially acknowledged by Bishop Delmas, the bishop of Angers, France, on Sunday, March 27, 2011. The beneficiary, Serge François, said:

"Following surgery in June 1997, my left leg was left semi- paralyzed ... I never asked Mary for help. I always prayed for the other invalids.

It happened in the afternoon of April 12, 2002. I was at the Saint Bernadette Church, across from the grotto, for the anointing the sick. At the end of the celebration, a young lady next to me started sobbing. I put my arms around her shoulders to comfort her, as I would have done to my own daughter. "It's all right, Mary is here, she sees us," I told her.

At that time, an unusual shiver ran through my whole body... I turned and suddenly walked away. It was only at the top of Saint Joseph Hill that I realized the change. I usually would go up using the wrought iron fence as a handrail! I was stunned... I went to see the priest who accompanied us. And the Anjou Hospitality House filled out a declaration of healing at the Medical Findings Office three days later."
