“The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.” ― G.K. Chesterton
Last month, a 10 year old Italian boy by the name of Paolo Bonavita with autism and epilepsy walked onto the stage at the Vatican to meet Pope Francis. He was given a seat next to the pope, and the cap off his own head!
“Climbing stairs by himself, when he normally needs help, I thought, ‘This can’t be happening.'”
Paolo was in Rome to receive medical testing after doctors suspected he had a brain tumor, said his mother Morra.
“The doctor was almost certain it was a brain tumor.”
Pope Francis told Morra he would pray for her son.
“He took my hand and said, ‘For you, the impossible does not exist.'”
Three weeks later, Paolo’s doctors said his test results showed no signs of cancer and his symptoms improved!
If she spoke to Pope Francis again, she said she would say: “Thank you for the miracle.”
