Kidney Patient Healed At Retreat - Hillary Stanis, West Bengal

"Call To Me, And I Will Answer You"(Jn.33:3) I am a Catholic and employed in the Gulf for the last 4 years. I came to know about Divine from my parents who attended a retreat in the year 1991 and from Priests of Fatima Retreat Centre, Patna, Bihar. In February 2004,the doctors at Gulf diagnosed me as a CRF patient (Both kidneys damaged). I came to India on May 14, 2004, for transplantation of my kidneys. I was hospitalized and several tests were conducted and the doctor suggested that only dialysis or transplantation of the kidneys would keep me alive. I was on dialysis and the access was made on my neck. Every alternate day dialysis was done. On the 25th of June I insisted the doctors to discharge me so that I could attend a retreat at Divine Retreat Centre. The doctors could not refuse me because I insisted on going to Divine. I was advised by the doctor to go on dialysis every alternate day. On the 26th of June I was discharged and on 27th June I reached Divine Retreat Centre, along with my wife. I continuously believed and prayed to Jesus that he would heal me. I cried my heart out to Jesus to touch and heal me. On the 4th day of the retreat during the healing session, Fr. John announced that the Lord is healing 3 kidney patients. I claimed the healing. On 3rd July, we went back to the same hospital and the doctors were surprised to see me. Jesus had worked a great miracle in my life. Jesus heard my prayers. I was one among the three. I am healed. Praise the Lord!
