Possible Miracle through the intercession of Blessed Francis X. Seelos

Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos

The Archdiocese of Baltimore plans to investigate whether an Annapolis woman’s cure from cancer was a miracle, a possible step toward sainthood for a 19th-Century priest.

Mary Ellen Heibel was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2004 and early 2005 for malignant tumors in her lungs, liver, stomach and chest. After she was diagnosed, Heibel began praying to Blessed Francis X. Seelos, and urging others to pray as well.

Heibel, whose cancer was terminal, experienced a recovery her doctors did not expect and can’t explain. She continues to pray to the priest, who served in Maryland before dying in Louisiana while treating yellow fever victims.

The Archdiocese of Baltimore plans to begin investigating the case in a few weeks, marking only the fifth such investigation in its history.

  1. Wonderful news.Lets pray that this will be accepted as the 2nd miracle so he can be canonised.A wonderful Priest who spent his life bringing others to Our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ.It is so sad that so many today do not want to receive the many graces from regular confession.They used to quere for hours for Blessed Seelos to hear their confession.

    These days people would rather “confess” to the tabloids, talk shows, or directly to as many other people as they can. Extra bonus if they get their own reality show or a book deal out of it. But not graces.
