Fr. Lerma

Over a period of time, Fr. Francis Lerma gradually lost his eyesight. He accepted his fate but was distraught over the fact that he could no longer celebrate the Mass. One day, he prayed for the ability to see only for such time as was necessary to celebrate Mass. As he was praying, he received the inspiration to open a missal. To his surprise, he could read it.

He was elated, went to the sacristry, put on his vestments and then did, in fact, celebrate the Mass. When it was over, he returned to the sacristy, where he could not longer see. Day after day, this same event repeated itself. He could see in order to say the Mass, but as soon as it was over, he once again returned to his blindness.
