Graces Received
"Quickest response I ever received to prayer."

Thanksgiving for prayers answered by holy Marians.

"Ovarian cyst was gone"

I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst in Aug. of 2001. Then, after three months of daily prayer to Fr. Stanislaus, the Venerable Servant of God, my prayers were answered. After having a sonogram this past week, I was told my ovarian cyst was gone.

I have shared this story with many. Please send me a few more of his prayercards to share with others.

"Instant recovery"

Upon reading the lastest issue of Marian Helper,I said a quick prayer to Fr. Stanislaus for a chronic pain in my side. At the same time, I was planning to send for his prayercards. To my surprise, the pain completely vanished immediately. Thank you, Fr. Stanislaus.

Would you kindly mail me the prayercards? I can't wait to spread the good news in thanksgiving for the quickest response that I have ever received to a prayer. And please feel free to use my testimony. The headline could be: "Instant Recovery."

Pre-cancerous condition halted

About a year ago, my routine pap smear was found to be abnormal, but the results were misfiled and I was not informed.

Recently, these results were discovered and communicated to me. Another pap smear was taken and found to be abnormal. A consequent biopsy indicated dysplasia, a pre-cancerous condition that can spread if not treated early. And presumably, I had had this condition for an entire year without treatment!

My physician performed surgery to remove the affected tissue. Meanwhile, my husband and I asked the Venerable Servant of God, Fr. Stanislaus, to help. We asked that the surgery would be successful with no spreading of the condition.

After the surgery, yet another pap smear was normal, indicating the absence of dysplasia! Since this condition had presumably lasted a year without treatment and did not spread, we attributed this to the intercession of Venerable Stanislaus.

"Favorable result to medical test"

When I arrived home on Tuesday night, I found Marian Helpermagazine. The first thing I always read is the "Graces Received" page. Anyhow, I read about the favors people had gotten and thought, well, I really need something, too. Let me ask Fr. Stanislaus.

The following day I prayed. What I asked for was a favorable result to a medical test. I did not think I would hear until at least that Friday, or maybe even the coming Monday.

Well, Fr. Stanislaus gives very fast service! The answer was in the mail when I got home that day. The results were fine -- no problems.

Sore is healed

I got the Fr. Stanislaus prayercard from the Marian Helpers, and I want to thank you so much for the prayers.

I asked for the help of Fr. Stanislaus to heal a sore on my right leg. My leg healed up soon, and I know that Fr. Stanislaus heard my words. This healing was important as I am a diabetic and have to be careful. I can walk better now.

I will continue to pray to Fr. Stanislaus. Now I want him to help my daughter with a drinking problem.

Unbearable pain subsides

I'd been home one week after a hernia operation, and the doctor said that I was OK. But then I started to have this terrible pain in my side and in my shoulder and back. This was very difficult because I live alone. I have only one son living, and he is never home.

The pain became so unbearable that I walked the floor all night. I tried taking some medicine, but it didn't help.

I was just about to call 911 when I remembered that you had sent me some lovely prayercards to Fr. Stanislaus Papczynski. I took one and held it over the affected area -- my side and back -- and I said the prayers over and over, asking Fr. Papczynski to help me.

Within one hour, the pain started to subside. I was so grateful that I sat down and cried in thanks.

I'll never forget Fr. Papczynski. I am now greatly in favor of his beatification.
