Divine Dollars

Today we're sharing a money-related miracle from the pages of the Detroit Branch 1 history. It's simple, but it speaks to how the Lord rewards good desire and that sometimes we need to just ask, remembering that He can provide anything, often in miraculous and immediate ways.

This is an experience given to Brother Antonio Molisani in the early 1920s when the saints of Detroit worked together to construct a church building on Hall and Devine Streets.

None of us were financially comfortable. In fact, most of us were either on welfare or out of work, and we all had big families. But somehow the money came in as we were building our church.

When it was time to buy the windows, each member was asked to contribute $10. I was out of work at that time. One day, as I was walking home from Brother Ishmael D'Amico's home, I had to pass by our new building. I raised my eyes toward heaven and talked to God. I told him that, though I wanted to, I didn't know when I would be able to give The Church my $10 share for the windows.

No sooner had I said those words that I looked on the ground and there was $10!

I immediately looked up and thanked God — HE had provided.

    God is sooo good!! How mindful He was of your need and provided! Truly a wonderful experience! I never get tired of hearing how the love of God continues to bless the Brothers and Sisters.

    This great comment comes from Sister Florence Perri.

    One day a Sister and I was going to have lunch together. She mentioned to me that she felt bad that she was not able
    to give a donation to church because she was unemployed at the time and did not have any funds.
    After treating her to a nice lunch and conversation, we proceeded to go to our car.
    On the ground, next to the car door that she was ready to open, was a $10 bill.
    God heard her desire and answered her prayer and she was able to give that money as a donation to our church.
    Nothing is impossible, if we put our trust in God.
    Just a Whispered Prayer, and God is there to hear and answer our plea!
