A Deep Feeling of Peace

Sister James Marie Fitz-Gordon, from Kingston, Jamaica suffered from stomach ulcers for years. On one particular Saturday, she attended a healing Mass. As the priest elevated the Host after the consecration, she had a strong sense that she would be healed.

A few minutes later, she went up to receive Holy Communion. As she returned to her seat, she felt a very deep feeling of peace.

During the days that followed, she began to feel increasingly less pain. Several weeks later, she went in to see her doctor. He ordered a routine test to ascertain the condition of her ulcer, including the amount of scar tissue that had formed over the years.

Later, when the results came back, he told her the results showed she had no ulcers and no scar tissue.
