November 2, 1949 The Healing of a Five Year Old Boy, Jacques Baumgartner;
Diagnosis: Double-sided Ear Inflammation
Five-year-old Jacques suffered from a double-sided ear inflammation and diarrhea and lost a lot of weight. In the hospital he was treated by double parasentes (piercing) and penicillin. The next day, the boy complained of cramps and later he stopped moving. They thought he was dead. The boy’s mother asked the Sisters for relics of Mother Alphonse Marie and prayed in unlimited confidence to our Foundress. Two doctors were called, who decided to operate the ear on October 9, 1947. After surgery the boy felt well, but suddenly, on October 11th, the condition worsened. With little hope, the doctor ordered a blood transfusion. The boy was swollen. The swelling retreated after a few hours. Eight days after surgery, the health condition had become complicated. The boy became very weak, was fed by tube, and did not move. At this moment, his mother in a great hope put the relics of Mother Alphonse Marie on his eyes, saying: “Now sleep, my dear child.” Then the child slept for eight hours. Doctor confirmed that he withdraw all human resources to rescue this boy and the fact that the boy was rescued can only be attributed to supernatural interference from heaven.
