The below testimonial was received several months ago from a devotee of Our Lady from aol.com....

I was broken and now I am whole...I was in darkness and now I see the light...I have opened the door to God, and he has touched me.

I am telling my story because I believe the time is near. I am not the kind of person who believes easily...the Lord had quite a time getting me to listen. But, now that I have heard the messages of Our Lady (speaking to people all over the world), I must say...Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers is not a message to be cast aside!

I will keep my story brief because there is no way to prove or disprove it. I was told by doctors that a severe back injury would inevitably lead to my absolute need for a wheelchair. I was brought (reluctantly) to Our Lady of the Roses of Bayside, New York, to the vigil held in Flushing Meadow Park. I was in a wheelchair, I was in pain, and I had a pocket full of medication to get me through the evening. A Franciscan brother told me that while he was praying Our Lady told him to find a girl (fitting my description) sitting in a wheelchair (he even knew my name) - AND TELL HER THAT SHE WOULD BE PARTIALLY HEALED. He gave me a statue of Our Lady of Fatima as a gift from Our Lady.

I left the vigil - walking, running, happier than I had been in years! I have been partially healed. I no longer live on pain killers. I am able to work full-time. I am a constant reminder to family and friends that Our Lord and Our Lady.....Our Father in Heaven are here for us...and miracles do happen.

Please visit the Our Lady of the Roses website. Read the messages, look at the miraculous photographs (My daughter and I have quite a few of our own)...and let God touch you as he has touched me.

Thank you for your time. MSB
