Healing Prayer

The Healing Prayer Team recently viewed a DVD of Blessed Solanus Casey. Fr. Solanus, a humble man given the job of porter at the places he served, was a deeply compassionate, gentle, and loving man. He also had a gift of prophecy, often knowing how God would respond to a prayer request. Once a mother came with her little girl with a life-threatening disease and asked for healing for the girl. Fr. Solanus was given the prophetic knowledge that the girl would not live. He said to the mother, “God loves little angels with him in heaven.” The mother knew what it meant, yet was filled with peace, despite the terrible loss she was about to endure. It was Fr. Solanus’ gentle love and compassion that brought peace to the mother. One might not have a gift of prophecy, but we can all respond to people with love and compassion, kindness and gentleness. Qualities that heal.
