So today at the parish we were busting up old bookshelves infested with termites with sledgehammers (all for the greater glory of God of course), took a couple hours cuz there was a bunch of other junk to get rid of… anyways at the very end of the day I got a splinter or something in my eye, and I wasn’t even busting up wood (it must have been floating around in the air). So, I went to the bathroom and started rinsing my eye. Five minutes later and the speck of wood is still in there. I’m starting to get worried. I then say, “St. Raphael, patron of healing, pray for us… Mary Mother of Christians, pray for us.” Lo and behold, though I wasn’t currently rinsing my eye with water, whatever was in my eye stopped bothering me. So I’d just like to say thank you to the most overlooked Archangel, Raphael (who is totally awesome, he also has a connection with eyes when you read the book of Tobit)… as well as Mary, because I love my Mama.
It’s not scientific proof of God or anything, but hey, it was cool, and that was my experience. AMDG.
