As you all know I have a great love for Our Lady. Here is a major miracle she did for me just last year. May it build your faith up and encourage you all…
I returned home from Australia utterly destroyed last year. For 3 months I was suicidal every day, there seemed to be no let up. Demons visited me daily to convulse me and try take me out of my body during my sleep. My parents were devastated and even though I visited the doctor, the spiritual was outside his knowledge.
No money, no friends and all but no hope the only place I could find any sense of peace was my.Grandad’s house where I had spent most of my childhood.
In the middle of the irish winter, this old house was cold and was an utter mess….just like my life..
I sat there for up to 8 hours each day. I cried, I screamed, I begged God not to let me suicide.
One day I saw an old statue of Our Lady. It was about 200 years old, a hole in it’s head and feet and covered in dust and spiders.
I wept. An idea came to me to wash it which I did, a week later to paint it….and then one day when I went in I said to Our Lady ‘you’ve got a hole in your head…so do I and I’ve been cast aside to rot just like this statue’
Then very clearly she spoke to me ‘if you fix my head, I’ll fix yours’. So I set about fixing it with a plaster filler and paints.
A few days later I went to the Blessed Sacrament chapel in Ennis and just like that, at a flick of a switch the suicidal thoughts left and my desire to go to Church returned.
Like she promises, Mary brings us to Jesus, her son…
Since then I’ve had many trials too but Our Lady has never left me. She sees hope in the hopeless and she never gives up on them no matter what their story.
Sweet Mother, thank you for loving me when everybody left me, for waiting at the foot of my cross. My life is yours, do with me as you please. I love you.
