But Will He Be Alive Tomorrow Morning

Antony’s father, John Baptist Cenoi, was deathly ill. He had received last rights and was not expected to live. Antony went to St. Paul of the Cross and implored prayers of the saint, for the recovery of his father. St. Paul replied that he will be saying Mass at 11:00 the next morning and, “when I take Jesus Christ into my hands I will not let him go until He shall have granted me this favor.” Antony was concerned that his father might not last until the next day, but St. Paul assured him that he would.

At 11:00 the following morning, his father suddenly opened his eyes and told his son that he was hungry. He then recovered fully.
