Mother and son cured at Lourdes
ADOUBLE Lourdes cure—of a mother and her son—is reported by a Jesuit in Rome, Fr.
The mother, a 35-year-old woman from Leghorn, went to Lourdes in July suffering from tubercular peritonitis. She had had three surgical operations in vain.
She had previously sent her son to Lourdes : he was suffering from tuberculosis of the lungs.
When the mother was carried to the Grotto she was in such pain that she lost consciousness. Similar pains afflicted her the next morning after she had received Holy Communion in the chapel of the hospice.
But when she was taken back to bed, says Fr. Marchesa, all her pain disappeared and she was cured.
During the return journey the mother received a telegram saying that the day after her own cure, her son, then in a sanatorium, had been instantly cured.
