Our Lady of the Pilar continued

Our Lady of the Pilar (note the turquoise background with gold stars..reminiscent of Our Lady of Guadalupe's mantle.)

This is part two to a post I wrote late last year about Our Lady of the Pilar. Specifically, I had shared an amazing story of a well verified and proven miracle that had taken place at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Pilar, Spain in the 1600's.

A young man who had an amputated leg and rubbed the holy oil from this Shrine onto the stump of his leg everyday. Then one evening his original leg (buried in a hospital cemetary, 100's of miles away) was restored to him. This was a throughly investigated and documented event, if you did not read the pages I uploaded on this story, click over and enjoy it as a lenten read-aloud with the family.

The story had come from a Catholic magazine called, Love One Another. I highly recommend a subscription to this family magazine, one of the best I've ever seen.

In their lastest edition they have published part two to this historical story with a modern verification. Here it is below. You can click it open to full screen to read online or to print up and share as a read-aloud.

Just briefly though, a bit of a synopsis. This historical event is further supported by a modern day doctor who specializes in limb attachment. He states that the testimonies shared by those who witnessed the miracle in the 1600's spoke of things they saw, that describe accurately the science of limb attachment. Descriptions that could not have been fabricated since re-attaching limbs is only been made possible in the last 50 years or so. So a must read!

Hi Anne,
You know my connection to Our Lady of the Pillar (thanks to you as well & Johnny boy). She has become a real favorite of ours over the last 3 years. I'm glad you are helping her get more exposure and understanding.
God Bless you
