In these pages, you’ll learn of countless miraculous healings that have occurred in our lifetime through the intercession of the saints. Among these stories are:
✓ The Philadelphia school teacher who had an inoperable malignant tumor. She was so feeble she could scarcely walk, but was healed instantaneously while praying at the tomb of Saint John Neumann.
✓ The young child who was visited in the night by Saint Padre Pio, and woke the next morning healed of congenital heart problems.
✓ Joseph Jette was twenty-two years old when the scaffolding he was climbing collapsed and left him crippled for life with a fractured spinal column. Br. Andre Bessett tells him to put down his crutches and walk. He obeyed, and was instantly cured.
✓ Jim sustained massive brain injury after his motorcycle smashed into a car and sent him flying thirty feet into the air. “I was working on a dead man,” the surgeon said. Having lost a daughter years before, Jim’s parents prayed to Elizabeth Ann Seton, who had five children of her own. Jim not only fully recovered from that crash 35 years ago, but still lives today.
✓ A youngster was to lead the evening’s entertainment at school but had lost his voice. “I’ll lend you mine for the evening,” said Don Bosco. For the rest of the night the boy projected his voice beautifully, while Don Bosco was hoarse as a foghorn.

God doesn’t need humans to work miracles for Him, but as veteran Catholic author Patricia Treece shows, it certainly seems His good pleasure to perform great miracles by means of human prayers and human hands.
For more than a quarter century, Treece — America’s most experienced and revered saint-watcher — has gathered numerous fascinating reports of miraculous healings brought about in our lifetime. Among them is the complete 2005 cure of Sr. Marie Simon-Pierre’s advanced Parkinson’s disease after she appealed for healing to the just-deceased Pope John Paul II. After intense scrutiny, the Vatican declared her healing miraculous, leading to John Paul’s beatification and canonization.
Here, too, are tales of scores of lesser-known healings brought to light by Treece’s own investigations into little-known official Vatican documents, as well as from her many interviews with living witnesses of miraculous healings, including several whose healings have been accepted by the Vatican as grounds for the canonization of their intercessors.
The healings documented here are not hasty judgments made by gullible, overwrought believers; they’re instantaneous, complete, and permanent cures for which scientific medicine still has no explanations — cures that also meet the Vatican’s stringent seven-part test of authenticity.
Praise for Nothing Short of a Miracle
Fr. Benedict Groeschel “In an age when many Catholics have lost their belief in miracles, this book will give you confidence that God continues to make possible the impossible through those who trust in Him.”
Patrick Coffin, host of Catholic Answers Live “At a time when the world has deluded itself into thinking that science has all the answers, this book reminds us that God has answers of his own.”
Matthew Kelly, author of Rediscover Catholicism “Here you’ll find answers to questions not just about miracles, but about what can happen to you if you dare to say yes to the Love behind them.”
Fr. Byron Miller, C.SS.R., Vice Postulator of the Seelos Cause “Angels may not have to earn their wings; but miracles are added proof that saints have earned their haloes. Patricia Treece provides a litany of holy men and women whose intercession is nothing less than miraculous, and she presents it with medical expertise that is nothing short of meticulous!”
Msgr. Richard Soseman, Congregation for the Clergy “It is possible to be holy in the modern world, to follow Christ in a close way every day: the miraculous lives described by Patricia Treece will serve as both your model and inspiration in your life of faith!”
Patti Gallagher Mansfield, Catholic Charismatic Renewal “Patricia Treece offers her readers a veritable treasury of miracles, all for the glory and praise of God. Anyone picking up this book will be moved by these manifestations of the love of God reaching into human lives with healing power. Take up and read! You will enjoy!”
Fr. Joseph M. Esper, author of Saintly Solutions “A charming and inspiriting glimpse into the workings of Divine Providence, and a joyful reminder that-through saintly men and women of our own age-God’s healing grace is even today miraculously present, powerful, and personally available to His people.”

✓ The five kinds of miracles (and why it makes a difference)
✓ The seven marks of every authentic miracle (can you name even two?)
✓ The benefits that miracles always bring (and the “benefits” that lead the Church — and should lead you! — to doubt that an inexplicable event is miraculous)
✓ The Eucharist: it’s a mystery but not strictly-speaking a miracle. Do you know why?
✓ The strict criteria by which the Church evaluates supernatural events; and the painstakingly slow, methodical way in which it deliberately proceeds with such investigations
✓ How supernatural phenomena like magic, sorcery, astrology, telepathy, clairvoyance, levitation, and telekinesis differ from miracles
✓ Rigorous scientific investigation: a true miracle’s best friend
✓ And countless other topics to deepen your knowledge and understanding of miracles, and draw you closer to the Author of them all.
