Life Saved by Mother
by Vergilius Preath Raj
(Coimbatore, TN, India)
It was a prayer gathering in our neighbour's house.
A statue of Mother Mary from France had arrived and it was considered a miraculous one. Initially we did not know about the gathering until we saw a huge crowd in front of their house.
People were pouring in. When we came to know about it, we visited their place. We were told that the Statue of Our Lady which was a made of clay and did not have a radium coating had glittered in white light spreading light all over the room.
Devotees could see stars all over the statue and the red rose garland turned into orange. The resident of the house when praying alone few hours back saw Mother Mary walk out of the statue.
By the time, we had visited their place, the gathering was over and since it was already late for the statue to be taken to somewhere else, it was taken away.
So we just prayed at the place of the miracle and I took the petals of the rose on the garland that had changed color and kept it in my wallet.
The next day it was raining heavily and I was waiting for a bus to house. It was a very busy main road of the city. I ran to get the bus going to my house which was moving so as to not miss it. I could not believe what happened after that.
I just kept a single toe of my leather shoe on the steel ladder of the bus and the entire 154 pounds (70 kilos) of my weight climbed into the bus. By simple physics logic, I should have definitely slipped down from the steel ladder on putting the entire weight of my body on the toe of my leather formal shoes, but actually I was inside the bus.
It is highly impossible for such a thing to happen. When I was settled into the bus, I realized what had happened and I just touched my wallet with the rose petals and silently said the Holy Rosary.
I am not sure how far others would believe this, but for me I would not have been living today if it was not for Mother Mary who had saved me from the jaws of death that day.
I don't need anything Mother, just your hands on me, my family's and my friend's heads.
Thank you Mother.
