A 32-page small-format (4"x7") book that recounts the amazing story of the first authenticated miracle in North America. This supernatural event - which occurred on the second floor of the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau, La., shortly after the Civil War - involved a young postulant in the Society of the Sacred Heart named Mary Wilson. Through the intercession of Blessed John Berchmans, she was totally and instantaneously cured of an excruciating and seemingly terminal illness.
