Prayer of the Month


Eucharistic Celebration Healing - Rosalind D’Costa, Mumbai

"I will bless the Lord at all times, His praises shall continually be in my mouth." (Psalm 34:1)

In late 1996, I had a fall. I bumped my head, fell on my back and hurt my right thigh. Immediately, I praised and thanked God that there was no head injury but only severe pain in my back and on the right thigh. I had great difficulty to get on to my bed that night.

I was advised to get myself admitted to the Holy Family Hospital in Mumbai for an X-ray. But I decided not to go to the hospital. Laid up in bed for almost two weeks, I could barely stand or sit down for a long period of time. My lower back and thigh ached while walking to the dining room for my meals.

During those days, I continued to praise and thank God for the situation that I was in. my daily prayer was: “Jesus, You are a mighty God, a mighty Healer, the Divine Physician; Jesus, You are my rock and fortress. I do believe that You can heal me without being admitted to hospital and thus reveal to everyone that nothing is impossible with You, Lord Jesus Christ.”

Meanwhile, I attended a three-day convention led by a team from the Divine Centre at the Sacred Heart Church, Santa Cruz. I participated in all the services from morning till night.

On the first day of the retreat, at the Eucharistic Celebration, I felt that I was healed of all my aches and pain. I was able to sit the whole day. I could also stand up, clap my hands and sing hymns of praise to my Lord.

I was thrilled that Jesus my Divine Healer had worked this miracle for me. That night, I was able to walk home to my brother’s residence without any difficulty, praising God silently.
