Today’s story, the second of three parts, features an East Coast virtual school of evangelization student who is working on her final project (evangelizing in public) before completing the course.
The following report comes to us from virtual school of evangelization student Marian in Bradford, IL:
“Carmen”, a 2nd grade girl and her friend approached and said they care about Jesus. She was happy to take a rosary and Miraculous Medal. Carmen didn’t initially need prayer, but as we learned that her father was in prison, we asked if we could pray for him and we did. We then talked about the meaning of Easter. She asked what the cross that we had on the table said, since she couldn’t read it. It was a quote from Matthew (her dad’s middle name is Matthew, which is what brought to light his situation.) I told her Matthew is a book in the Bible and asked her if she had a Bible at home. She didn’t think so. She did say she goes to a church where they give out food and clothing. I told her that she may ask them for a Bible. Maybe her mom could read it to her. She took a couple of prayer books, then went to her car and happily returned for more items. Her brother, Brent, came along.
We greeted Dave and his wife as they left the store. They barely slowed their pace, but did ask for prayer for good health. We prayed for them, and then they stopped with their car as they were leaving the lot and the wife (who hadn’t really engaged us before) asked with a beautiful smile if they could pray for us. We said, “yes, to pray that we wouldn’t freeze out there!” They smiled and said they would pray for us!!
Catherine and her husband noticed the signs and came directly to our table. When asked if she needed prayer, she replied, “yes”, and her eyes filled with tears as she asked for prayer for her cousin, Carey who lives in Florida and has thyroid and skin cancer. We held hands and prayed for Casey’s full recovery according to God’s will. Catherine was tickled to take a Miraculous Medal and hear the story of St. Catherine Laboure because her name is Catherine. It appeared that the Holy Spirit had touched her heart!
Praised be Jesus Christ!
