St. Bernard

St. Bernard was in the church of St. Ambrose in Milan. As he was preparing to say Mass, a lady of high rank was brought to him. For many years she had been sick. She no longer had her sight, her hearing or her speech. Her tongue had also become enlarged and protruded out of her mouth.

During the Mass, as often as he made the Sign of the Cross over the Host, he also made it over the sick woman.When he broke the Host and said, “Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum” (the peace of God be with you always), she was immediately cured. They rang the bells of the church. People from all over the city flocked to see miracle and all gave thanks to God.
