Not Going to Oz Today

Today's Miracle Monday, submitted by Sister Tammy Valenti, is in response to our call for articles about weather-related experiences. This one is certainly a whirl. Enjoy!

About 20 years ago when I was working at a hospital, God spared me from a tornado.

It was a long day at work, which started about two hours before my normal tour of duty. I was in charge of a patient event that very hot summer day and found myself exhausted around 4 p.m. I was supposed to be on the job for another 30 minutes, but the rains had begun, and I wanted to get home before the weather got worse.

A Feet Washing Miracle

Today's Miracle Monday happened during feet washing. Sister Patricia (Tish) Palensar relates the short, sweet tale.

We went into feet washing, and I had a strong feeling to ask Sister Wendy Giannetti to wash my feet. I normally never ask anyone specific to wash my feet.

Praise God for Providing

Praise God for Providing

Since we just enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend, we'd like to once again share this experience from The Church history book. Travel back in time 90 years to the home of Sister Helen Campitelle.

It was in the year of 1928. My husband was out of work because of sickness. As it was the night before Thanksgiving, my children wanted me to go to the store to buy food for a Thanksgiving dinner. I did not have any food in the house except beans. I told my children I was very sorry that I was unable to make a dinner for them as their father was out of work, and they would have the beans which I had in the house.

Miracle From the L.A. Fires

Today's Miracle Monday is told by Sister Erin Light. She's the director of a memory care facility in Southern California. The healthcare company has several locations, and one just happens to be where the wildfires are burning in Los Angeles. Here's her tale of God's protection.

The afternoon of Thursday, November 8, I got word that we needed to assist in an evacuation of our Calabasas community in north L.A. I was the only administrator who went to support the other community administrator in Calabasas, along with many drivers and buses to transport residents to other communities.

The Watermelon Offering

The Watermelon Offering

If winter weather is getting you down, today's experience from Sister Marie McGuire will take you back to summertime.

During the summer of 1963, I was downstairs doing laundry, and my son Mickey began to question me about something that was on his mind. He said, "Mom, in Church we are taught that God created the heavens and all living things on earth. Then He created man in His own image. In school, we are taught about a big bang creation theory. We are taught the theory of evolution of man from the apes. How do I know which creation story is true? If I put God's creation on the test in school, then I get it wrong. I just want to know what is the real truth.”

Getting Along With That Difficult Relative

Getting Along With That Difficult Relative

Today's Miracle Monday is a story about the challenges of family relationships. Thank you to Brother Gerald Benyola for sharing this one.

As a young man, I was blessed to find a wife to share my life with (Rose Pontillo) and also accepted the family that had loved and raised her. There was a time when my in-laws lived with us. We all sat down and agreed, with a clear understanding, as to what I expected of them living in our home. Thank God for my wife’s patience as to not involve me in the daily interaction of their relationship. My father-in-law was a gem.

But one of my challenges was my mother-in-law, Sister Fina Pontillo.

A Miracle 18 Years in the Making

A Miracle 18 Years in the Making

Today's Miracle Monday is a testimony of healing from Sister Rose Bonaduce.

Back in February 1997, I was not feeling well and experiencing some concerning symptoms. I saw my doctor, and he immediately scheduled me for a same-day MRI. By that evening, I was diagnosed with a 4-centimeter benign brain tumor that was encroaching on my right optic nerve.

My very first thought was that I needed to be anointed. On Sunday, I went to the Levittown, Pennsylvania, Branch, and because I did not want to alarm my parents and children, I asked for prayer in the back room. It would be a year before my husband, Joe, and I told anyone what was going on with me.

It was to be a long year ahead. This is where my 18-year journey with Christ and my tumor began.

The Date on the Other Side of the Dash

The Date on the Other Side of the Dash

Today's Miracle Monday from Sister Cheryl Cervone is a 15-year-old testimony that is just as powerful today.

July 16, 2003. It seemed a Wednesday like any other. I set off to the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market at around 1:30 p.m. to get my favorite salad greens before the market closed. I walked with purpose down the middle of Arizona Avenue, one of the streets that is closed and lined with vendors on market day.

Off to the right was a vendor giving out samples of chips and guacamole, and I couldn’t resist. No sooner did I get to the table when I heard a sudden loud commotion and, looking to my right, there was a car barreling toward us at high speed, mowing down everything in its path! Surreal!

The Prayers of the Righteous are Powerful and Effective

The Prayers of the Righteous are Powerful and Effective

In June 1982, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that had attacked my right optic nerve, causing complete blindness in that eye. The tumor was growing toward the left optic nerve, and I was at risk of losing my eyesight completely. Surgery was recommended, but it would mean opening my skull from ear to ear and lifting the brain to allow access to the tumor. The surgery was very risky.

Read Mark 11:24

Read Mark 11:24

Today's Miracle Monday comes from a September Ladies' Circle meeting of the Irvine Branch local. This one is for all of you who are praying for a healing.

Sister Sandra O. asked for prayer for her husband, Mike, because he has a bed sore. Mike has been bedridden for four years with dementia. He recently turned 70, but his symptoms began about 13 years ago. Sandra doesn't always know how to pray for him, but her personal desire is that he would arise from his bed and be healed someday. His healing would be a great witness to her sons, doctors, family, friends, and neighbors of God's undeniable power and glory.

Grief, Gnocchi, and No Regrets

Grief, Gnocchi, and No Regrets

For today's Miracle Monday, Sister Lynette Huttenberger responds to a recent request for articles about how God uses us as instruments in His hand. Enjoy!

Some years ago, a former member of our branch passed away. He and his wife lived in our neighborhood, and we would see them regularly at a local bagel and coffee shop.

As customary, food is brought to the home of the grieving family as a sign of love. My intention was to deliver food to his wife, but I heard they had an overabundance of food, so I didn't. As a deaconess of the church, this bad decision haunted me for years. I felt I should have reached out no matter what! From time to time I would pass by their street and immediately feel regret.

God Hears You

God Hears You

Happy Labor Day! Today's Miracle Monday is comprised of two short testimonies submitted by Sister Carmela Gray. (If you don't think God hears you, then these experiences are for you.)

I can remember some years back I was going through a very bad time with my spouse. I even contemplated divorce, but, knowing we are to pray for all things, I went to the Lord with my plight.

Meeting Angels Unaware

Meeting Angels Unaware

Today's Miracle Monday comes from Sister Deb Gonzalez. Enjoy!

I recently read the Gospel Blog by Sister Marie McGuire about feeding a man who knocked at her back door. The result? She had entertained an angel unaware and that same day, her husband received a much-needed job to support their family.

As I read her blog, I quickly recalled my husband Marty’s own experience with entertaining an angel unaware. Still very young in our marriage and in our spiritual walk with God, this experience underscored for us the need to trust in the Lord to provide for us.

It was a hot summer day. Per our normal routine, I was finishing up at work while Marty was picking up our daughter from the nanny since he left work before me. His usual route took him over an extremely busy interstate that was notorious for traffic backing up during his commute. This particular day was no different — until he unexpectedly blew out a tire on the side of the interstate. This was during the Firestone tire recall where the entire sidewall of the tires were disintegrating.

Miracle in Meadville, PA

Miracle in Meadville, PA

Today's Miracle Monday, written by Sister Edith Terrill, comes from the pages of the September 1949 issue of The Gospel News. This one is for all of you who are living in small outposts, away from the main body of The Church.

I wish to relate an experience as told to me by a woman here in Meadville. She had been ill with a nervous breakdown for two years. She had been under a severe strain during the illness of her aged mother and had overworked taking care of her.

She walked two and one-half miles to her mother's home, bathing, dressing, and feeding her, then walking back to her own home and doing her own work. At the end of six weeks, the mother died, but she (the daughter) could not shed a tear and became very ill.

You Won't Regret Wearing Clear Lenses

You Won't Regret Wearing Clear Lenses

Today's Miracle Monday is a short, sweet dream submitted by Sister Virginia Surprenant.

Years ago, I had a dream where I was being examined by an eye doctor who I was working for at the time. The doctor had his back to me and told me that I needed glasses and showed me the glasses. To me, they were not what I would have chosen, as they had clear lenses.
