IS THERE A CURE FOR ME AT KNOCK, IRELAND?

IS THERE A CURE FOR ME AT KNOCK, IRELAND?

MEDICAL AND OTHER CURES AT KNOCK 

Cures began taking place at Knock soon after the apparition, and Archdeacon Cavanagh kept a record of them. Here is his first account of the first recorded cure:

DELIA GORDON OF CLAREMORRIS

“On the 31st August 1879 (ten days after the apparition), a girl aged twelve years was cured while attending Mass at Knock. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Gordon of Claremorris, attested that Delia had suffered intensely all her life from deafness and violent pains in her left ear. Several times a week they had to get up in the night to try to relieve the awful pain by various remedies. They took her on a pilgrimage to Knock. While attending Mass there, the pain attacked Delia so badly that she began to cry, and Mrs. Gordon had to bring her outside where they knelt in prayer before the place where the apparition was seen. Mrs. Gordon picked out a piece of cement from the gable, made the Sign of the Cross over it and placed it in the afflicted ear. Almost immediately the pain completely disappeared never to return and no trace of deafness remained. Her general health improved rapidly and in a very short time she became the picture of health and strength.”

THOUSANDS OF CURES

There were thousands of such cures, but they were not scientifically investigated until 1936. In that year the Medical Bureau was established. This Bureau is modelled after the one at Lourdes. Now the world is offered scientific proof of the cures that take place at Knock. Doctors who have no religion at all have admitted that the Bureau is run in an impartial manner and that every case is investigated carefully.

WE MUST DECIDE WHERE WE STAND… FORGIVENESS IS POSSIBLE!

“Every now and then we come across a miracle of forgiveness. We hear of someone whose life has been profoundly changed by the deliberate act of another offering to forgive the offender. More often we hear about how difficult it is to genuinely forgive. Some even argue that forgiveness is actually impossible. Just a few say it is undesirable because we live fully by anger and outrage.

SOME SAY: GENUINE FORGIVENESS IS IMPOSSIBLE

We must decide where we stand. If we know our need to be forgiven then we have to ask how it is possible to forgive. Otherwise human life is ultimately frustrating and without healing or wholeness.

In faith we look to Christ. With the eyes of faith we see in him the realisation of our deepest hopes: forgiveness is possible; it is given! And it comes to me through the Church in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.”
