Marian Helper Spring 2023

GRACES RECEIVED Daughter overcomes addiction I started praying for our daughter on Labor Day 2021 to Blessed George. She lost her marriage, professional career, house, and three years of her young life to depression and alcohol addiction. On the Friday before Labor Day 2022, she had her mother and I over for dinner at her apartment, a rarity. She said she had some interviews but followups were not happening. But she announced that, in the meantime, she had taken a part-time job as a hostess at a bar/restaurant nearby. Obviously, we were not thrilled with the bar idea, but any productive activity was welcome and, in light of the last three years, a miraculous development. When I reported this to Fr. Jim McCormack, MIC, he informed me that Blessed George has a special charism for employment needs. I had no idea! ank you, Blessed George! — MK, email Heart surgery not needed I have been praying to Blessed George for quite a while. But for the last three months, I was praying to him to intercede for me when I was told I had a severe heart mitral valve. I had to go to a hospital for a preliminary test to determine if I was a candidate for the procedure. When I went for my results of the test, the doctor told me the valve wasn’t as bad as they had thought, and I wouldn’t need the mitral valve chip unless I started to have problems. By the grace of God and the intercession of Blessed George, my prayers were answered! — DM, Peoria, Arizona Son offered position out of blue My son felt that he needed to nd a steady full-time job to support his wife and newborn son. He had spent many years being a freelance graphic designer, making a good income, but he now wanted more nancial stability. I prayed a novena to Blessed George, and he is now the creative design director of a large international company. I know in my heart that this was due to the intercession of Blessed George because this position was o ered out of the blue. ank you, Blessed George! — NB, Westland, Michigan Joint pain goes away I believe I have received graces through the intercession of Blessed George. Some months ago, I developed joint pain, which made it di cult to walk. About the same time, I read about Blessed George in Marian Helper. I asked Blessed George to intercede to relieve my joint pain. My doctor told me my pain could only be treated with pain medicine, which did little good. Shortly a er I began my prayers to Blessed George, my pain went away. ank you, Blessed George! — TP, Washington, New York MARIAN HELPER • SPRING 2023 • MARIAN.ORG 33 For a Blessed George prayercard (B57-CBGP), call toll free 1-800-462-7426.
