Exactly What She Needed

Jeanette De Rosa had a son. He was 15 and had suffered an emotional breakdown. She had prayed with her whole heart for his healing, but this did not happen.

She had begun asking God why He was not listening to her, why He had not healed her son.
Then she attended a healing Mass in Boston.

After the Mass, Fr. Lazanski began the healing portion of the services. He came up the aisle, blessing people as he passed. Occasionally, he would stop at a certain individual and offer particular prayers. Jeanette watched as he slowly made his way in her direction. As he arrived at her spot, he put his hand on her shoulder and said, “God did not turn a deaf ear to your prayers.”

She had told anyone this was her fear, certainly not the priest who had just celebrated Mass. Yet, somehow, he said the very thing she needed to hear most.

Encouraged, she continued with her prayers for her son after this. In time, he was in fact healed.
