Daughter healed of exam phobia - Joseph DCruz, India

All praise and glory be to our Lord Jesus Christ who makes all things possible.

I had attended a retreat at the Divine Retreat Centre on 19th July, 2015 with my wife, daughter and mother-in-law. My daughter who was one of the regular toppers all throughout her school years, right up to grade 10 was suddenly struck by an exam phobia.

While at the retreat, I prayed to our Lord Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament to grant my daughter the strength and grace to overcome this fear, regain her self-confidence and complete her studies. Her fear did not leave her but we could see that she was trying to do her very best. It was time for her to appear for her preliminary exams, a few of which she missed as the fear had not left her and for the ones she attempted, she managed to score average marks. It was then time for her to appear for her final exams in March 2016. All through her preparations for her finals, she held on to a crucifix that she possessed. With the help of our Lord she managed to attempt all her papers for the board examinations, much to our relief. On the 21st of May, 2016 the grade 12 CBSE results were announced and my daughter passed with an overall average of 82 % and she was also declared the topper in one of the Commerce subjects - Business Studies, at her school. All praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ who makes all things possible. All throughout this difficult time of trials and tribulations, we also interceded with Mother Mary, who helped us all the way.
