We believe unfailingly in the power of Divine Intervention. St. Jeanne Jugan told us, “If God is with us, it will be accomplished”. She had complete trust in God to provide for whatever she needed. Through her intercession, we often see prayers answered, needs met and situations resolved.
Just before Christmas we received this miracle story:
Dearest Little Sisters of the Poor,
The purpose of this letter is to thank Saint Jeanne Jugan for answering my recent prayers. Three weeks ago my mammogram showed 3 abnormal lumps. I have had 2nd stage breast cancer in the past so I knew what this could mean. My grandparents lived at your home until their death many years ago and in their honor I try to donate as much as I can especially during the Holiday Season. I have never prayed to Saint Jeanne Jugan before but have read about how she has helped people. I really wasn’t sure how to pronounce her name so I just prayed to Saint “JJ.” Last Friday my test results showed that the lumps were benign and I believe that Saint “JJ” answered my prayers. She gave me the best Christmas gift anyone could wish for.
I am enclosing a check for the amount I would have had to pay as a deductible if I had to go through chemo, etc. I know you will put it to good use taking care of all of your residents.
May you have a Merry Blessed Christmas as will I.
God Bless all of you!
We know that St. Jeanne Jugan is a powerful intercessor and has helped many people. But, it is always an inspiration for us to hear the stories.
