Seminarian healed of brain tumour - Bro. Dominic Rozario MSFS, Vellore

I joined the Congregation of Missionaries of St Francis De Sales. At present I am under my formation in Kottayam in Kerala. In my fifth standard I had brain tumor. It was diagnosed in the final stages. My parents took me to CMC Hospital in Vellore. Even the world-renowned doctors said that there was no hope. As I was the only son, my parents struggled a lot to save me. They sold all the property; my mother pawned all her jewellery for my medical treatment. My father is a software engineer and my mother is a fashion designer; both of them resigned their jobs to take care of me. My sister stopped her schooling. We were in great difficulties, left with only the place where we lived. At that stage we came to know about Divine Retreat Centre. As a last resort, my parents brought me here in an ambulance. I was on a wheel chair. I could not understand the preaching and what was going on. But the Almighty God touched me during my second retreat. I was healed and walked out of DRC. The one last treatment that was left out was the laser treatment. When the doctor tried to locate the tumor to burn it, they did not find the tumor. Since then I am normal. Now my family is back to the same old status that we were in. the Lord gave us; the Lord took it back. He has drawn us close to Him and gave back all that we need. I praise and thank the Lord.
