What the Doctor Printed in Capital Letters
The following letter was sent to the Marians' editor of thedivinemercy.org, and is being posted here with the writer's permission:
Earlier this year I sent you a testimony of how I discovered the Divine Mercy Chaplet while on an elliptical machine at the gym where I work out regularly. You were kind enough to share my story on your website.
I wanted to follow up with a further testimony. Last year I was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous esophageal ulcer. The doctor put me on a strong prescription antacid medication and on dietary restrictions. I took the medication faithfully, but I didn't always follow the dietary restrictions.
This year I had to return for a follow-up visit to see how things were going. Up until 10 days before my April 19 appointment, I was still experiencing regular acid-reflux symptoms despite the medication. This was due to my not following dietary restrictions as closely as I should have.
One night, at work, I was in prayer about the upcoming visit, and the Lord prompted me to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day until my doctor visit. Since I last wrote you, I purchased a DVD copy of the chaplet. The next morning I began 10 days of praying the chaplet every day.
On the third day, as I prayed the chaplet, I felt a warmth go up and down my esophagus. After that, I didn't experience any more symptoms of acid reflux. When I went in for my endoscopy April 19, the doctor printed in capital letters: HEALED ESOPHAGEAL ULCER! Needless to say, no more cheating on dietary instructions!
Thank you, Jesus, for Your mercy! Thanks to you, Felix, and all my brothers and sisters for your prayers.
