Miracle at the Tomb
of Sister Faustina Kowalska
Before the age of 15, Maureen
Digan enjoyed a normal healthy
life. Then she was struck down with a very serious, slowly
progressive but terminal disease called Lymphedima. This is a
disease that does not respond to medication and does not go into
remission. Within the next ten years Maureen had fifty operations
and had lengthy confinements in Hospital of up to a year at a
time. Friends and relations suggested she should pray and put her
trust in God. But Maureen could not understand why God had allowed
her to get this disease in the first place, and had lost her faith
completely. Eventually her deteriorating condition necessitated
the amputation of one leg. One evening while Maureen was in hospital
her husband Bob went to a film called Divine Mercy, No Escape,
and there he became convinced of the healing powers of intercession
by Sr. Faustina. Bob persuaded Maureen and the Doctors that she
should go to the tomb of Sr. Faustina in Poland. They arrived in
Poland on March 23rd 1981 and Maureen went to confession for the
first time since she was a young girl. At the tomb (now the Shrine
of Blessed Faustina) Maureen remembers saying in her own inimitable
style "O.k. Faustina I came a long way, now do something". Innerly
she heard Sister Faustina say: "If you ask for my help, I will
give it to you." Suddenly she thought she was having a nervous break-
down. All the pain seemed to drain out of her body and her swollen
leg which was due to be amputated shortly, went back to its normal
When she returned to the U.S.A. she was examined by five independent
doctors who came to the conclusion that she was completely healed.
They had no medical explanation for the sudden healing of this
incurable disease. The accumulated evidence of this miracle was
examined in consultation by five doctors appointed by the
Sacred congregation for the causes of saints, having passed this test
it was examined by a team of theologians, and finally by a team
of cardinals and bishops. The cure was accepted by all as a miracle
caused by Sr. Faustina's intercession to the Divine Mercy.
