I Asked Jesus for a Miracle—Here’s What Happened

Fr. Columba was once doing a mission in northern Ireland when he found himself doing a small high school assembly in front of some apathetic, uninspired kids. In a humble (desperate) attempt to awaken their souls, Fr. Columba had the audacity to lead the classroom in asking Jesus to heal a boy who came forward with excruciating back pain.

Today, Fr. Columba shares what God did next (and for the entire week, for everyone in the entire school).

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
