JULIE M. TORRES, MOTHER OF Lucy Torres-Gomez, said she was healed of cancer through the intercession of St. Padre Pio.
In thanksgiving, Julie, her husband and a group organized by Chito Bertol, who runs the Manila Seedling Bank in Quezon City, went to San Giovanni Rolando, Italy, last year to say “thank you” to the saint.
Here’s Julie’s testimony:
“In 1997, I started invoking Padre Pio in my daily prayers after I read an inspiring book on him. Of all the saints whose intercession I asked for, Padre Pio was the one who consistently manifested his intercession, next to Mama Mary, my greatest intercessor.
“My husband and I are both cancer survivors. It was my husband who first received a small relic of Padre Pio a few days after undergoing surgery for a malignant growth in his right kidney. This was in 2000. In January the following year, I held on to that relic as I underwent a battery of tests for a suspicious growth in my breast.
“I was told that the growth in my right breast was malignant, but fortunately it was at its earliest stage... While recuperating, a friend of mine who did not know I was a Padre Pio devotee, gave me a medal and Rosary she got during his beatification in Rome.
“I credit Padre Pio for leading us to competent surgeons, and for making it possible for our illness to be discovered at a very early, highly treatable stage so that neither chemotherapy nor radiation was needed.
“To this day, I call on him for help. I have several relics of Padre Pio. Putting them over aching parts of my body, I always find relief and comfort. Though I lose some, I am happy to say each one I lose is replaced. [There is always] someone who gives me a Padre Pio relic.
“What I find amazing is that most of them come from people who do not know I am a devotee. My husband and I have gotten used to occasional scents of roses and violets even without the flowers, signs associated with Padre Pio.
“During my birthday last year, I received a big statue of Padre Pio. I took that as an indication that I should be more active in sharing with others the life and work of this holy priest. It would be selfish to keep his mediation all to myself.
“We are propagating the devotion to Padre Pio by sharing with others what he has done for us and by donating his images to parishes that will welcome him. We hope more lives will be touched by his intercession. Sept. 23 is the feast day of St. Padre Pio.”
