Comfort for the Mourning

Comfort for the Mourning

Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Renee Scolaro. If you have an experience you want to praise God for, please share it with us.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

Almost one month to the day after my father passed away, my heart was very heavy with sorrow. I realized that I was feeling overwhelmed and going about my responsibilities with a long face.

The evening of June 22, 2013, Saturday, as I was preparing to retire for the evening, I stated to my husband that I needed to laugh, I wanted to laugh, but could not find it within myself to laugh because I felt so heavy hearted. I thought to myself, "I should be anointed tomorrow," and wondered if I should express a spiritual or natural need. I said my evening prayer and went to sleep.

Baptism Cleansed My Illness

Today we're sharing another testimony from our archives. Enjoy!

I was born with very bad acid reflux disease. I had trouble keeping food down, and the doctors worried that if I kept having stomach issues, I would get a hole in my esophagus and need surgery.

The Power of Faith

The Power of Faith

Today we're sharing an article that Brother Michael McGuire sent around Mother's Day. It's a little late, but we want to thank God for providing for and protecting our parents.

One day back in the summer of 1970, my wife and I stopped by my mother's house in Lorain, Ohio. She was outside in the front of the house.

We were talking when my brother Sean threw a Jart up in the air, and it landed on the top of her foot. A Jart is a two-player lawn game that is kind of like darts. Jarts are shaped like darts except bigger with very long pointed ends.

Kissing the Ground

Kissing the Ground

Today we're dipping into our archives and sharing one of the military miracles from a few months back. Submitted by his daughter, Sister Barbara Genaro Nuzzi, this is the incredible story of Brother Armand Genaro. It's a little long but worth every word.

On August 17, 1941, nine young people from the Niles Branch dedicated their hearts to the Lord in baptism. The entrance of the United States into the war in December of that year soon overshadowed the joy of this day. Of the five brothers baptized, four of them were drafted, one of which was Armand Genaro.

Celestial Companions

Today's angel-themed Miracle Monday is from Brother Jim Sgro. If you have a testimony or miracle to share, please don't be shy!

Hebrews 1:14 tells us "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?"

Two months before Brother Joe Lovalvo passed away, I had the opportunity to visit with him for four days. He was in assisted living, and during the course of my visit, we would walk and talk. We would go from his apartment to an outside area and around the complex.

Right By Her Side

Today's angel-themed Miracle Monday is the testimony of Sister Ida Verducci from the Niles Ohio Branch. Special thanks to Brother Frank Natoli for sharing this one. If you haven't submitted your story yet, please share with us!

Sister Ida, who has been called home to her reward, related the following experience to me over 30 years ago when she was in her late 70s or early 80s. But before I share her testimony, a little background and perspective might help...

Runnin' on Empty

Runnin' on Empty

I still remember the incident with a small pang of regret. It was one of those, "God, can I please have a do-over?" moments.

We were standing in a circle holding hands at a Vacation Bible School. The electricity was out. There was no way we could proceed with VBS unless God turned the lights back on. A group of teenagers had bravely asked me to say a prayer asking God for help. "Yeah, but what if I say the prayer and nothing happens?" I thought to myself. I mumbled a few feeble words and that was that. Not very inspiring. Fortunately, in the next room, the rest of the kids were praying with a bit more confidence and, moments later, the electricity returned, praise God.

The electricity was back, but I felt like I'd missed an opportunity. I told myself that next time I'd have a bit more courage.

Angels Among Us

Angels Among Us

Today we're kicking off our angel-themed Miracle Mondays! The first article is submitted by Sister Natalie Pezzenti. We really need more testimonies for this month's theme. If you have an experience that's related to angels in any way, please share it with us!

During my last quarter at college, I struggled with horrible bouts of anxiety and panic attacks. They consumed me on a daily basis and I was living in a constant state of fear and worry. Never knowing when one would strike, I felt alone and frightened.

My doctor at home suggested I try some medication when I felt an attack coming on. I had never needed anything like it previously, so I was quite hesitant. The doctor assured me that sometimes you have to try a few different medications before you find one that does the trick and eases your anxiety. This was the first of those medications I decided to try.

One Lucky Marine

One Lucky Marine

Even though it's officially June, we had so many wonderful military submissions from last month that we're doing an encore. Today's experience was submitted by Brother Kerry Carlini.

For the Branch No. 2 saints, Sunday evening, December 7, 1941, had started as any other M.B.A. service, although the aim that evening was to rehearse for their upcoming Christmas program. Suddenly, like the rest of the world, their evening activities came to a deadening halt when the news of the bombing of Pearl Harbor was relayed to the branch (in person, for a phone had yet to be installed).

Our Promises and God's Protection

Our Promises and God's Protection

Today's military-related Miracle Monday is taken from the pages of the Detroit Branch 1 history. We want to thank Sister Rosanne Champine for directing us to this testimony of Brother Frank DiDonato. We also want to wish all the veterans out there a happy Memorial Day! Thank you for serving our country.

In December 1944, I was drafted into the service, just three months following my marriage, being placed into the infantry, which was very rough, indeed.

I'm Your Man

I'm Your Man

Today, we're sharing another military testimony submitted for this month's Miracle Monday theme.

In 1970, during the Vietnam War, I was drafted into the U.S. Army. My wife and I had only been married for a year. As we celebrated our anniversary, we were saddened by the thought of being apart for most of the following two years.

Healing in Zambia

Today, we're sharing an experience from the church in Zambia. It happened on April 7, 2014, and Brother Chalwe tells it in his own words.

In one of our recent Sunday worship services, we heard the testimony of a young boy of 17 years we anointed and prayed for who had been diagnosed to have a tumor in his stomach.

Fall, Run, Stop

Fall, Run, Stop

Today's military-related Miracle Monday is taken from The Church History Vol. 2. Brother Lou Pietrangelo shared the following experience had during World War II. Make sure you check out the special treat at the end of this article!

After being trained on B-29 aircraft, I flew overseas to the Pacific Theater to a U.S. air base on a small island called Tinian, about 1,500 miles off of Japan's main island. One evening while preparing for flight takeoff (one per minute), as we waited in our positions to get on the runway, I decided to write a letter to my mother.

A Blizzard With a Chance of Sunshine

Whether the weather is still brisk and chilly or warm and sunny where you live, we hope you enjoy this testimony by Sister Teri-Lyn Tunno. If you would like to praise God for something He did for you, please send us your story!

I want to share an answered prayer. Even though it may seem small to most, it meant so much to me and is something I will never forget.

One evening about 10 years ago, my younger sister was working late at her second job at the local mall. Since my brother-in-law was out of town, our dad was babysitting my 3-year-old nephew all day. When I got home from my job, I saw the weather report predicting a band of snow coming our way. As it began to fall, everything turned white.

A Mother's Prayers on the Battlefield

Today's military-themed Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Mary Ann Heaps. There is still time to submit your miracles for this month. Please contact us with your story.

I want to honor the Lord for protecting my late husband Rusty Heaps in battle during his service with the U.S. Navy during WWII.

May is a good month for me to tell this story – May 1 is “May Day” (an international stress signal), May 8 is VE Day, May 16 was Rusty’s birthdate, May 17 is Armed Forces Day and May 30 is the traditional Memorial Day.
