St. John Vianney, Curé of Ars
Patron Saint of Parish Priests
When something meaningful has happened in our lives, we can recall where we were, who we were with, and what was going on at that time.
One of those times was April 14, 1967, when God sent us an angel, a blonde, blue-eyed baby weighing barely five pounds. Our grandson was almost swallowed up in his blanket; he was so tiny. We couldn’t keep our eyes off this precious bundle. Suddenly, the nurses seemed to be having a problem with him. Seeing us, they quickly drew the curtains shut. The doctor finally came out from the nursery; he told us, our baby wouldn’t last the night. Numb, we replied helplessly, “You mean he is in the Hands of God.” He looked at us, kind of strangely.
We ran to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It was locked! The last thing we remember doing that night, was going to our parish church, out on Long Island. It was locked! It was dark; all we could see was a lighted statue of Jesus in front of our church. I knelt before my Lord and begged Him to save our precious grandson.
