Editorial Reviews

Review

Matthew Kelly, New York Times best-selling author of Rediscover Catholicism
"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."

Fr. Benedict Groeschel
"Having lived with Fr. Solanus Casey as a teenager, I became familiar with the miraculous at a young age. 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
"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.S.S.R., Vice Postular 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."

This book focuses on recent and for the most part local saints (North & South America). It is filled with uplifting, true stories of the Saints and explains the process that the Catholic Church uses to Canonize Saints. An outstanding book that I couldn't put down!

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this book is, and how much it has done for my faith. I had no idea that miraculous cures were so abundant, even in today's society. Patricia Treece is excellent!

This book deserves more than 5 stars. As a Protestant I cannot tell you how much this writing has increased my faith and my respect for the Catholic church. I believe this is a must read for anyone who doubts the power of prayer or the occurance of miracles today.

Patricia Treece is a first class journalist and her stories are amazing.

Format: Paperback
Patricia Treece has given us a book that is a must read in this age of skepticism. In the time of Christ his miracles underscored his divinity and brought the crowds to him to listen to his words.
No less in our day do miracles provide the same effect. In this book you will find scores and scores of healings defying medical explanation. Patricia's painstaking research is a boon for the skeptical mind as she provided the evidence and gives the backstory to each event.
In addition her biographies of each saint, venerable or blessed give us a vibrant picture of their lives and work on earth, and thanks to the miracles, their continuing work from heaven. We also get a glimpse into the process of a declaration of sainthood and the rigors that a person's life is subjected to before such a declaration is made.
My husband picked it up before I could crack the book open and was just as enthralled as I was, so we were often racing to see who would get it first.

Patricia Treece's writings are always a joy for me to read. She is exhaustive in her research and in addressing possible challenges to the information she presents. I find the stories in this book very uplifting; which, we need in the world of today.

Format: Paperback
Nothing Short of a Miracle begins with the death of Pope John Paul II, who will soon be Saint John Paul the Great. Immediately upon his death, people in St. Peter’s Square chanted what millions worldwide were thinking, “Santo subito! Santo subito!” In English, that means, “Sainthood now!” Elsewhere in the world, a French nun named Sr. Marie Simon-Pierre Normand suffered from Parkinson’s disease, the same affliction that hampered this great man’s final years as pope. Sr. Normand’s community began seeking John Paul II’s intercession for a cure, and though the result wasn’t an immediate yes, she did eventually receive her cure. This story reminds me of a lesson I learned growing up. God always answers prayers, just not on our schedule.

The rest of the book follows a similar format as the above account. Each chapter focuses on someone who is seeking intercession and healing from a future saint. The saints include well-known figures such as Mother Teresa, Padre Pio, and Elizabeth Ann Seton, but it also includes lesser-known saints like Francis Xavier Seelos, Frances Cabrini, and Solanus Casey. Miraculous healings have been attributed to the intercession of each of these individuals. If this seems hard for you to grasp, know that each healing has been thoroughly verified by the Church, and the miracle is therefore authentic. These great men and women aren’t some huckster “healers” who seek to drain your wallet and poison your soul. These are people who have gone before us to eternal life and have a direct audience with God in heaven.

Apart from being an educational book about our modern-day saints, this book is also very inspirational. We live in a broken world in desperate need of healing. It seems like every day you hear about something else causing cancer. Questions abound.

Format: Paperback
This is by far the best book of miracles I have read. The author makes clear at the beginning that this book is limited in focus. We read about miracles, almost all of them physical healing, through the intercession of modern saints who have a clear connection with North America. The modern reader in North America is likely to find places of pilgrimage within reach, stories close enough in time and place to have a personal feel to them.

Every story she tells she carefully places both geographically and in time. I have read far too many collections of stories of miracles that say something like "long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away..." I do not find these stories helpful or inspiring. However, the author's careful and consistent reference to real places, in real time, with footnotes for further reading and verification help us to learn something about the reality of the miracles.

Most importantly, she shows the saints as they view themselves, only as one who conveys God's love, never as one who possesses power to heal. The stories of thousands (that is not a typo) of healing miracles attributed to St. Andre Bessette during his lifetime build up a degree of overwhelming astonishment for the reader, but St. Andre himself attributed all the miracles only to the intercession of St. Joseph. He frequently told people who asked for his help to use some "St. Joseph's oil", a drop of oil from the lamp he kept burning in a chapel dedicated to St. Joseph. The author is careful to point out that such oil could not, of itself, bring about any cures. In another story an atheist doctor visited Don Bosco, seeking to be cured of epilepsy. The doctor began by demanding "You can cure all kinds of disease, can you not?
