BENIGN RESULTS, PREGNANCY!!!
Thank you St. Gianna as I received my results and
everything was benign. You have been so good to me and my family.
Through your intercession, my husband and I were gifted a baby girl 18
months ago after having difficulty conceiving. She was named after you
as well. She brings so much joy to our lives. We cannot thank you enough
for this blessing.

My husband & I have been unable to have biological
children. We were blessed to adopt two newborn sons 9 months apart (now
ages 4 & 5). We both greatly desired daughters. A friend told me about
St Gianna 3 years ago & we began to pray to her daily asking her to
petition God on our behalf to bless us with two daughters. Our first
daughter, Maria Gianna was born in March 2014. We received and adopted
her at birth. We continue to wait and pray for our second daughter.
Thank you St Gianna for hearing and answering our prayers and comforting
me while I waited. Please continue to intercede for us.

Thank you for my son and daughter in law's miracle
pregnancy. She was given a 1% chance of conceiving naturally. I ordered a medal and placed their picture on it. We all prayed fervently to St. Gianna and St. Gerard to intercede. They are 5 months pregnant... the doctor was amazed. We are overjoyed and beyond grateful.

TRISOMY 18, MOTHER BLESSED FOR 31 DAYS!!!
I was about 20 weeks pregnant when our unborn daughter was diagnosed with Trisomy 18. We were told she would probably die before delivery or during delivery. We prayed many novenas to Saints (Gianna, Jude, Philomena, Joseph). Our daughter was born on July 15, 2013 and blessed us for 31 days.

8 YEARS INFERTILE, THEN PREGNANT!!!
My husband and I had tried to become pregnant with a second child unsuccessfully for 8 years then suddenly became pregnant, just to have a miscarriage two months later. It is then that I found out about Saint Gianna. I called her organization and got a medal and prayer cards. I would hold the card on my stomach and pray for a baby. THREE MONTHS later we were pregnant with our now happy, healthy and wonderful 14 month old son. I know we have Jaxon today because of her intercession.

SICK BABY IN NICU! - NOW 2 YEARS OF AGE!
"I asked members of this group (facebook) to pray for a sick baby boy in the NICU a little over two years ago...within 2 days he was off a ventilator! When my husband and I finally met this baby boy (our son), we were told by everyone in the NICU how amazing he was improving. I put a St. Gianna card behind his name sign on his bed and he came home in less than four weeks. That two year old is running around, starting to talk a lot, and lights up my life! I am going to plead with Saint Gianna again to bless him with a sibling...but right now I would just like to thank her and all of you!"

SHE WAS EXPECTED TO DIE AFTER CHILDBIRTH, BUT... !!!
One of my friends was dying after a difficult delivery followed by tremendous bleeding. Family was called by the doctor saying it was the end......We heard about that, prayed Saint Gianna Beretta Molla, and she woke up for the joy of everybody.... Exactly one year before Gianna had been declared "Saint" by JP2 (now Saint John Paul II).

12 YEARS INFERTILE!!!-- NOW PREGNANT!!!
Thank you Saint Gianna for your intercession. My husband and I have been married for 17 years and have always been open to having children. We actively tried for over 12 years seeking out reproductive specialists. We were offered IUI and IVF, but told that we really needed to do IVF with ICSI. They told us my husband's sperm was poor and that was the reason we couldn't conceive. We tried some medical interventions, but were uncomfortable with IVF which directly opposes our Catholic beliefs. Thankfully, we heard about the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Nebraska. We called them to ask more about why IVF is not approved by the Catholic Church. Sr. Renee spent an hour on the phone with us and answered every question we had. By the end of the call, we were firm in our decision to not choose IVF. They recommended we begin charting my cycle (which we had done when we were trying to avoid a pregnancy as newlyweds, but had stopped doing). They put us in touch with the St. Gianna Center in our area. My cycle improved and we received much care and prayer. It was great to have a place to go and ask questions that actually got answered! The doctor from St. Gianna Center recommended I have a laparoscopy to explore why we still weren't able to conceive. I hadn't considered it before because the reproductive specialists told me my system was fine. The doctor from the St. Gianna Center linked us with the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Nebraska. We considered spending the money to fly to Omaha to pursue testing, but decided to have a local doctor do the laparoscopy. We figured it couldn't be that different to have it here or there. The doctor found nothing, so we waited and prayed some more. We finally decided it was now or never, so we flew to Omaha for the ultrasound series and the laparoscopy. Within five minutes of my first ultrasound, the technician stated it looked like I had poly-cystic ovaries. After completing the laparoscopy, the doctor confirmed it. She also found endometriosis, fibroids, and a cyst (she was able to remove the cyst during the procedure). Although I was happy to know what was wrong, I was shocked that I would have to have a 2nd surgery. We flew back to Omaha 2 months later so the doctor could remove the endometriosis, fibroids, and repair the polycystic ovaries. Just the 2nd cycle after my surgery, and we are pregnant. I had never had a positive pregnancy test in 17 years, so I took 2 tests and then a blood test to confirm. The Pope Paul VI Institute is following the pregnancy and working with our local doctors to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. I don't blog or have a facebook account, but I would check this website often when I was feeling down and asking for St. Gianna's assistance. I would read the prayers and the thank-yous. I found comfort in praying with others going through similar situations, and found such hope in reading the thank-yous. I hope this posting brings hope to someone today. And if you know anyone who is frustrated with the lack of answers or find the medical treatment does not align with their beliefs, please consider letting them know about the Pope Paul VI Institute. I wish we would have gone sooner, but I know it is God's time and plan, not mine. Bless you.
By: Bridget, FLORIDA, October 7, 2014
My husband and I have tried for years to have children. In 2010 we were blessed with a son after months of fertility drugs after laproscopy to remove endometriosis as well as praying. I had also visited the Shrine of our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse to touch and pray with St. Gianna's gloves. We again went through the same fertility treatments starting in July 2012. In November 2013, the doctor told us she did not think we were going to be able to get pregnant without IVF. We knew we couldn't and continued to pray to God and to St. Gianna to bless us with another child. We were pregnant the next month and are expecting our second child in September! Thank you St. Gianna for interceding for us!
[Editor's Note: IVF is not permitted by the Catholic Church. See Donum Vitae for more clarification. Praise God that this brave couple did not consider this doctor's advice.]

GENETIC ABNORMALITY IN BABY -- NOW, NORMAL DEVELOPMENT!!!
I asked St. Gianna to pray for my baby. At the beginning of June, doctors found an abnormality in an ultrasound that could indicate a genetic condition and/or heart defect. My genetic testing results came back last week, showing very very low risk of genetic problems. Also, on Tuesday, we had another ultrasound with an echocardiogram, which showed that my baby was developing normally and his heart was healthy. Thank you, St. Gianna for interceding for my baby. Please continue to pray for my baby that he continues in good health and development and that he is born alive and safely without complications this December. Amen.

CURE OF ADENOCARCENOMA AND PREGNANCY WITHOUT IVF!!!
I asked for St. Gianna's intercession twice. The first was for me to be cured of my adenocarcenoma of the uterus. The second was for me to conceive naturally the month before our scheduled IVF. Both were granted by God through our Lady's intercession together with St. Gianna and St. Claire. I am about 6 weeks pregnant and will continue to pray to St. Gianna to intercede for us for a healthy/normal baby and safe pregnancy and delivery. God is good.
Option Selected:- I grant the Society of St Gianna the permission to edit and post my intercession

BABY WHOSE BRAIN WAS NOT DEVELOPING PROPERLY -- COMPLETELY NORMAL!!!
[message from our Shrine Director]
I think I told you months ago about this woman Angela, pregnant with 6th baby (named her Gianna) whose brain wasn't developing properly. I remember it was really bad....
She tried to make a pilgrimage to our shrine when snowing and I talked her out of it and sent her a relic card (from Gianna Emanuela) in the meantime.
She and her 5 friends took a very long drive to visit the shrine one Saturday, and all venerated the relic. I remember Father meeting them in the vestibule and greeting the lovely group of women so devoted to St. Gianna.
Below, are emails from the friends and family that on Friday, Angela had an ultrasound and that baby Gianna's brain was found to be COMPLETELY NORMAL!
Another miracle/answered prayer through the intercession of Saint Gianna!
Thanks to all of you for keeping this Society/Shrine running!!
Date: Fri, Apr 4, 2014 at 1:27 PM
Subject: update on Gianna
Thanks be to God!! I just came back from my monthly ultrasound appointment. The doctor said that Gianna's neurological concerns have "completely resolved" and that her brain is "entirely normal."
We are speechless, joyful and very thankful for all of your prayers, which have clearly been heard and answered. love, Scott and Angela
May 2014 Update:
BABY GIANNA, A MIRACLE!
Born completely healthy after doctors told the mom for months that her brain was not growing properly. Her mom (Angela) and a few friends came to the shrine from West Virginia to venerate the relics. A few weeks ago, prayers were answered and the docs determined that Gianna’s brain is now completely normal!!!
The good news continues as Gianna was born a MONTH early yesterday as the mom LOST ALL amniotic fluid....sound familiar? The woman who lost all her amniotic fluid but had a totally healthy baby in Brazil (I think the baby's name is Gianna Marie also!) was the second miracle attributed to St. Gianna’s intercession.
Born May 2, 2014
Healthy! No need for NICU.
Thank you St. Gianna!

My daughter thought she was going to have a miscarriage. I had touched St. Gianna's glove at a Women's Conference and brought home a prayer card that was also touched to her gloves. We placed the prayer card against my daughter's abdomen and asked for Gianna's intercession. About 7 months later a beautiful, healthy baby boy was born. He is now nearly 6 years old and still very beautiful!

PCOS, 6 YEARS OF INFERTILITY, PREGNANT!!!
My very dear friend had been nagging me to go to the St. Gianna shrine for a few months. Due to busy schedules it took us a few months to get it together to go. We went on a rainy Sunday in late December or early January. We walked to the shrine and she placed St. Gianna's glove to my stomach. We prayed and logged our visit. After 6 YEARS of treatment for PCOS we are happy to announce we are expecting our first child this year! Please remember the power of faith and prayer works. You just have to believe it will. I was a sceptic but within 6 weeks we found out our life changing news.

PREGNANT DESPITE PCOS! GRANDMOTHERS ARE GOOD PRAYER WARRIORS!!!
Thank you note :- St. Gianna thank you for hearing my grandmother's prayer for me to be able to conceive. Around the exact same time my grandma added me to your prayer list I conceived and am now 8 weeks pregnant. We had been trying for over a year and was having trouble due to me being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I am happy to say we say the baby on the sonogram on Friday and heard a strong heart beat of 175 bump! Thank you Saint Gianna!

On a recent visit to an eye doctor for a check up, my mother; who up to this point was told she had macrodegeneration of her one eye, which if she did not get injections in her eye, she would go blind. [Now] the original doctor said her eyes are clear. I credit this to a miracle of St. Gianna.

ADOPTION OF A BABY BOY!!!
We visited you and your shrine at Nativity of Our Lord Parish in 2012. It was the late Spring when we visited. We were on a waiting list to adopt a child for just about a year. We prayed for your intercession. In August, we got a call from our agency that we were matched with a birthmother! On September 4, 2012 we met our perfect baby boy. We named him Andrew Phillip. He has blessed our lives in so many ways! He is now 17 months old. Thank you for answering our prayers Saint Gianna!

SAVING HER CHILD!!!
Dearest Saint Gianna, Thank you for interceding in saving my child. I know you heard my prayers.
By: Elizabeth, Allentown, PENNSYLVANIA, Jan. 21, 2014
I am 16 years old, and raised in a very Catholic home my entire life. When I was 13 years old, I was having a lot of trouble trying to pick a saint for my confirmation, reading all the Catholic books lining the bookcases of my home and church. I found many inspirational saints who were nuns, priests etc. I've known my entire life my calling was not to be in the religious life, but to have a family. I never just wanted a commitment to God, but to my husband and children. I wanted a saint who was an inspiration for who I knew I was going to be. Thankfully to modern technology, a family friend posted something about a Pro-Life saint on Facebook. Ah ha! Perfect, I've always been a huge Pro-Life advocate. I researched everything I could find about St.Gianna, and quickly fell in love with everything about her. She's my role modal, and my inspiration and strength for the work I do as a Pro-Life teen, and for the wife and mother I know I will. As I painfully deal with the modern day world, and the hate of the Pro-Choice society, all I can do is pray for strength and know I can make a difference in this world, with St.Gianna smiling over me as I do what I know I'm called to do.

Dear Saint Gianna, Thank you for your assistance with our relationship. It is with much joy that I tell you about our up and coming wedding on the 24/2/14. This has truly been an amazing journey for us both. Our second request is for an easy natural conception of a perfectly healthy child/children for us to love and to raise with the knowledge of the greatness of God and the saints to be instilled in their hearts. I know that miracles still happen. James and my continuing and strengthen love is one such example. Please will you speedily assist with our request for a healthy child. Thank you.

SAINT GIANNA IS WITH THIS FAMILY IN DIFFICULT TIMES!
Our family has endured several catastrophic events over the past 7 months. Fire, Flood, Armed Robbery, Sickness, Homeless and the death of our beloved pet Shelby. My daughter is named after St Gianna and has been been nicknamed "G" by some of our family members. Gianna, who is 10 years old, feels our family has been cursed with bad luck and is suffering from anxiety. On a recent evening where I was gathering our belongings from our temporary housing that became flooded, I noticed a car parked in front of our garage that has never been there before. The license plate read "Saint G". I took 3 pictures of the car and plate, got home to show my family and the photos were gone. When I went back the next morning, the car was still there and I took the picture again and now have it in my camera. I feel this was Saint Gianna's message that she is with us during these difficult times!

FIRST "THANK YOU" OF 2014!!!
Thank you so much St. Gianna for all your prayers! I am so grateful for God has heard my prayer. I am now 11 weeks today. Everyday that I'm pregnant I am so grateful for. This has been a long journey, but it has been well worth the trip. And I feel this blessing has been so amazing not only because this is truly a dream come true, that this child is my little baby, but I feel I also have grown spiritually by going to church everyday, saying my rosary and chaplet everyday. These are all very important for me to continue because God has been so good to me. I will continue to pray for those women who desire to get pregnant. For I was there once and I never want to take anything for granted, for where much is given much is expected. Please continue to keep me in your prayers. As I will continue to ask for St Gianna's intercession. And I will continue my prayers for all the intentions of all the people on this website. That their prayers will be answered. God bless and I love you.

PREGNANCY AFTER A VISIT TO THE SHRINE!!!
On June 12, 2013, Sister Lucy FSGM went and prayed at the Shrine of Saint Gianna for a prayer that I had asked her to make. Her cousin and I had been married since June 12, 2010, and had been trying to have a baby for two years. That day I had asked that she pray for my husband and me to have a child. In July we found out that we were expecting, and today we found out that it will be a little boy. The baby is due on April 22, 2014 and I'm hoping that we have him on Easter Sunday. I have always believed in God's power, but through Saint Gianna, he has given us a gift that doctors said we could not have on our own. We owe so much to Saint Gianna. Our baby is truly a miracle.

Jan. 8,2013, I received the medal and prayer novena thru mail from the Society of Saint Gianna. I'm so very happy and thankful for all the blessings that God has given to me through St. Gianna. I've been wearing my medal and praying her novena since then. Jan 28, my last laboratory result was normal. I pray with the continuous intercession of St. Gianna that I will be free from other illness and cancer. Thank you so much. God is so good. He never abandoned His own children asking and begging His great Mercy and forgiveness.

PREGNANCY AFTER 2 MISCARRIAGES!!!
After 2 miscarriages last year, I went to pray to St. Gianna at the Shrine in Warminster. I received relic holy cards and a medal that I have worn every day since and have prayed to St. Gianna regularly for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. After 5 months of trying to conceive again, we are blessed with another pregnancy. This cycle I prayed to St. Gianna in the 'nursery' and started to feel hopeless. Then, I was excited and thrilled to see I was pregnant again! I continue to pray to St. Gianna that this pregnancy will develop into a healthy baby. Thank you St. Gianna. If it's a girl, we will name her Katharine Gianna and she will be a testament to faith and your holy miracles. Thank you.

PCOS - IN HER 40'S - PREGNANCY IMPOSSIBLE? - TOUCHED RELIC - PREGNANCY!!!
My husband and I got married quite late, he was 37 while I was 40 years old (May 2005).I have had PCOS since a teenager, so I had irregular menstrual cycles and I have cysts in my ovary. Being old and with a PCOS, makes pregnancy quite impossible for me. My husband and I were both okay if we will not be granted with a child, but would also be very happy to welcome one. Just so we would not have regrets when we look back in our old age, we tried on working to get me pregnant- we have a very little window of time left, I definitely wouldn't like to be pregnant at 45. So, I went to 2 ob-gyne's. Plotted my cycle, took clomiphene and had a laparoscopy (ovarian surgery). Still, I didn't get pregnant. Our doctor had already advised for an in-vitro fertilization should we really want to have a baby. I wanted to try it since we also could afford at least two trials and also because, I wanted to exhaust all the efforts lest I would look back in my old age and regret that we never really tried hard. So, we were on a stage of deciding whether we should go on with the IVF or not. I was the one who was more determined to do it and my husband, the more practical one but who makes sacrifices to please me, was weighing things and was leaning towards going through the IVF also. Then one Sunday, the glove relic of St. Gianna Beretta Molla visited our parish church of St. Francis of Assisi in Bakersfield, Ca. That must be around October 2006. After the mass, there was a line of people who lined up to touch the relic. We didn't know who St. Gianna was and we actually never heard about her. With pure belief that miracles do happen and full of hopes that God would be gracious to us, we knelt and touched St. Gianna's relic for few seconds. (You see, we are not so religious and prayerful people but we have a strong faith that God loves us.) But those few seconds in my life left a feeling that I gives me goosebumps whenever I recall that moment up until now. There was warmth, as if blood inside my body were rushing up and followed by numbness all over, a feeling of joy all over me that made me a little teary as I stood up. I got a copy of St. Gianna's prayer before leaving the church and prayed to her every night to intercede for our request to have a child, if God wants us. I gave myself a timeline that should I still not get pregnant by March 2007, we will try the IVF. So, in December 2006, we went on a Christmas vacation. Leaving the idea of working on a baby behind. By February 2007, I was scheduled for an MRI. For some reasons, as if a little voice behind me was telling me to cancel the MRI testing. I just refused being subjected to the test. Looking behind now, I am so thankful that I did because I was already pregnant then when I had my home pregnancy testing done a few days later. My husband couldn't believe that I got pregnant for without telling me, he has already given up and have accepted that we cannot have our own child. We were so thankful to St. Gianna and continued to pray for a safe and easy pregnancy. My pregnancy was easy, meaning I had little of those pregnancy discomforts. I had a happy and breezy pregnancy except that I had gestational diabetes that was hard to control. But, that's the only glitch, everything was easy to manage. Overall, I had a wonderful pregnancy, I enjoyed it thoroughly. As a way of thanking her, we named our daughter Gianna Therese. She was due on October 4, which was St. Gianna's birthday but she came out earlier on September 29, the feast day of the Archangels. Indeed she's our little angel given through St. Gianna.

ST GIANNA'S BOOK SAVES A LIFE!!!
I recently donated the biography of St.Gianna to the local Pro-Life center. I met a wonderful young lady who read the book and because of the book, she had her baby! A beautiful baby boy. I have never seen this girl so purely happy until now. St.Gianna has been my role model since I learned about her. I have horrible cramps which cause me to not leave the house. After many prayers to her I know am able to live with the tiny bit of pain I have and I'm able to enjoy daily tasks!

COUPLE WERE ADVISED THEY WOULD HAVE NO MORE CHILDREN -- NOW PREGNANT IN THE 26th WEEK!!!
Saint Gianna, Thank you for the blessing of this miracle baby I carry now in my 26th week. Through all our struggles you have shown us the power of prayer and faith. Thank you for our first daughter Stella who is a healthy and happy girl. After our miscarriage in Dec. 2011, we were told we couldn't have any more children. With a strong heart and faith that this was God's will and that we would accept whatever He had in store for us, 3 months later we were blessed with a natural conception! Saint Gianna, thank you for your love and prayer. This truly a miracle baby.

GOOD PATHOLOGY REPORT!!!
Thank you St. Gianna for interceding for me. I received the pathology report from my recent fractional D&C that was done on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 just two days after the surgery. The fractional D&C was done because some atypical metaplasia cells in a background of squamous morules was found on a biopsy at the end of June despite my having been on a strong form of progesterone for two months. The doctor recommended a hysterectomy as an option as I have had other questionable biopsies this year. I didn\'t/don\'t want to have one as I want to preserve my fertility and feel a strong calling about this despite the fact that I am 42 and also have PCOS. I put in a prayer petition to St. Gianna that was posted on July 12th. I\'ve been pr aying St. Gianna\'s prayers daily and prayed her novena up until the day of my recent surgery. I also have been wearing the medal I received that touched her scarf and have placed a prayer card that has also touched her scarf that I received from the Society of St. Gianna on my lower abdomen. (Actually I\'ve been wearing that prayer card on my abdomen since I received it in the mail and still am and have just finished reading a book about St. Gianna\'s life.) The recent fractional D&C pathology report found my uterine lining to be NORMAL with no hyperplasia, no atypical cells, no metaplasia, etc.. (It did comment that the scrapings from the upper part of my uterus were scant so as to preclude a full evaluation, but my doctor was not surprised at this.) I feel so blessed that I can at this time continue to maintain my uterus and fertility, and pray that with the continued intercession of St. Gianna, my uterus and reproductive system will continue to be healthy and be can cer and precancerous conditions free and that God will answer the second half of my prayer request for marriage to a man who loves God with his whole heart and for us to be able to conceive a child naturally. I pray that our marriage and child or children be a testament to God and his love. I thank St. Gianna for praying with and for me and for interceding for me with God. I thank her from the depths of my being. God is good and generous, and I\'m learning to trust in Him more and more like St. Gianna.

SURGERY ON NEWBORN BABY!
Dear St. Gianna, I want to thank you for watching over my baby niece (goddaughter) Sophia, who had surgery yesterday. She was only 3 days old. She was born w/ water in her lungs and then developed internal bleeding. Doctors couldn't figure out why and where it was coming from. She lost so much blood in a few hours. She was transported to a different hospital. I prayed to you and finally after about 2 hours of being in the OR [operation room] the doctors said she had a scratch on her esophagous from when they were trying to suction the water out of her lungs. Dear St. Gianna, please let it end. Let her get better and be as healthy and beautiful as her 2 siblings. Please watch over her and her mom Francesca. Thank you for listening.

FOUR YEARS OF INFERTILITY!
My husband and I have been trying to conceive a baby for 4 years. We already started seeing an infertility specialist early this year. After dislocating my kneecap and undergoing a minor surgery last April, we were supposed to start with fertility meds and artificial insemination last May but we conceived naturally! I've been praying to St. Gianna since I received the medallion last February. Thank you very much for this blessing.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Artificial insemination as a substitute for the conjugal act is prohibited by the Catholic Church. See Donum Vitae.]

INFERTILITY --VISIT TO SHRINE-- NOW PREGNANT!!!
Prayers finally answered! My husband and I have been struggling for years with infertility and trying to have a baby. We have both gone through surgeries, spent thousands of dollars on fertility treatments, and were at the point of feeling hopeless. A friend of mine told me about Saint Gianna and the shrine. After praying to Saint Gianna and reading the testimonies, it gave us our hope and faith back. We decided to take a road trip to Pennsylvania to visit the shrine, pray to her, and venerate the gloves. It was an enlightening experience for us and so empowering. Just weeks after visiting the shrine, through the intercession of Saint Gianna, our prayers were finally answered. We found out we were expecting, something we never thought we'd hear. I want to thank Saint Gianna and the people of the organization for praying for us. Through her intercession and by the power of Jesus, we are expecting our first child, our miracle this December!!

After my grandson (age 11) was diagnosed with osteosacroma, bone cancer, going through surgery, infections, weight loss and lung surgery, On December 30, 2011, my family and I took him to Nativity of Our Lord Church, Warminister, Pa in which St. Gianna's glove was placed on his swollen leg and lungs.Two weeks prior they found 4 marks on his lungs, the doctors were not sure whether it was a fungus or cancer. He was unable to receive any more chemo since it affected his kidneys, he couldn't eat and may have to get a feeding tube inserted. I told my grandson miracles sometimes don't happen right away. Two days after visiting Nativity church the swollen leg started to recede and on January 20, 2012 we met with the physicians and the marks on his lungs were not cancer but fungus and with antibiotic will take care of the fungus. He has gained 1-1/2 lbs and now going to rehab to learn to walk. We thank St. Gianna for the miracle and hope he continues to get better each day and hoping cancer does not come back again. We thank St. Gianna for the miracle and allowing Our Lord and Blessed Mother for guidance.

BURST APPENDIX AVERTED!!!
My husband, George, was diagnosed with advanced fourth stage colon cancer in May, 2010, and I sent a prayer request to you. His surgery was successful, and since July, 2010 his chemotherapy treatments have been going well. I started to pray the novena on April 20, 2012 with the intention that his recovery from cancer will continue. However, beginning on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 George was not feeling well, and by Friday, April 27, 2012 he was running a temperature of 100.5 degrees. His oncologist advised us to go to the ER to be checked. The radiologists saw what looked like an infected appendix. On Saturday, April 28, 2012, the fiftieth anniversary of St. Gianna's death, George had his appendix removed successfully. The surgeon later told him that his appendix was infected in several places and was within about five hours of bursting.

A WIFE'S PRAYERS FOR HER HUSBAND!!!
Thank you, Saint Gianna, for answering my prayers. I saw a show late last night about you and your work. I was up because my husband was in the ICU unit and I was alone in my home. NO family with me other than my daughter who is only 10 years old. I prayed hard for his heart to heal and his breathing to be under control. In the morning I got news that my mother-in-law was coming to help me with my daughter and her son. When I went to see my husband in the ICU unit, he was sitting up and in a chair and his oxygen levels improved. Please keep helping my husband, Saint Gianna. I am forever grateful for your love and spiritual guidance during these difficult times. I can’t thank you enough for the miracle you provided to me.

CANCER -- GYNECOLOGIST URGES PRAYER TO ST GIANNA!!!
Thank you St. Gianna. I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer on Feb 23rd, 2012. At the time, it looked my only option was a full hysterectomy.

Thank you for your intercession.

THREE MISCARRIAGES -- NOW BABY BOY!!!
In my three years of marriage I had suffered three miscarriages. Doctors were not able to identify the real reason and also a lot of risk was on my side since I was 38 years and I have thyroid and weight issues. I was in a real desperate need of having a baby when I read about St Gianna through the net. I contacted your office and I received the medal and the novena prayer. I started the novena on a daily basis and in the same month I conceived and am a proud mother of a baby boy who now is two months old. Thank you St Gianna for your intercession and blessings. I am ever grateful to you.

14 YEAR OLD -- BROKEN LEG -- SURGERY -- BASEBALL!!!
My 14 year old son, had a terrible break in his right tibia and ankle. He was devastated when he found out that he would need surgery and at least 6 months to recover. I was concerned with finding a surgeon. I was referred to one, I called many others who sent me back to this particular young man. He did an awesome job. My 14 year old son was back on the baseball field last week, 4 months later. The second surgery was 10 days before he had healed enough to play baseball. He still needs to regain strength, but I know St. Gianna was protecting him and guiding his surgeon. God Bless- I have no "proof" of a miracle, but I feel one in my heart.

BIRTH OF VANESSA GIANNA!!!
My daughter was expecting her fourth child and experienced complications during the pregnancy several months ago.
In 2009 she lost a baby girl in her sixth month. She lives with her husband and three daughters in Fort Drum NY as my son-in-law is full time Army.
This time due to complications she was sent to a specialist in Syracuse NY. She had a procedure to secure the cervix to prevent premature birth.
She was instructed to stay off her feet for months. I told her about St Gianna and we both prayed to her for her intercession during this difficult time.
Praise God she delivered a healthy baby girl today. It is a miracle. She gave her St. Gianna’s name in her honor.

For 2 years, my husband and I tried to conceive a child. I had many doctor's visits and procedures done and it did not work. Doctors told me that I would probably not have a child and my heart was broken.

About 3 months after making the trip, I became pregnant with no medical assistance. It was truly a miracle! On May 22, 2011, we had a beautiful baby girl who is healthy. We are making a trip out east from the Detroit, Michigan area and we wanted to make a trip back to the shrine....

A GRANDMOTHER'S PRAYERS -- 15 YEARS OF WAITING!!!
I am 63 years old, have two children, a girl and a boy, 41 and 38 years old. I wanted to be a grandma, but my daughter had two miscarriages after getting married three years ago. My son and his wife have been trying to have a baby for the last 15 years. They have gone to all kind of treatments. After my daughter had the last miscarriage, I was referred to Santa Gianna by my sister-in-law and some friends. The family started to pray to her. Finally, our prayers were answered. My daughter had a beautiful baby boy in August of last year and Friday my son and his wife gave me the good news that she is pregnant. I am now praying to Santa Gianna to give them a healthy baby. Thanks to my faith in God and in Santa Gianna, I will be the most happy grandma in the whole world.

PREGNANCIES THROUGH ST GIANNA'S INTERCESSION!!!
ONE -- TEN YEARS!!!!!!!
Hello my name is Marianne and I had posted a testimonial about 1 year ago because I lost a baby and was trying to get pregnant again so I may have a healthy baby. I kept on praying to St. Gianna. But most of all that I thought was very beautiful after posting the testimonial was that I received a beautiful charm of St. Gianna that I have been wearing ever since I got it and been praying to her and I am now 7 months pregnant. I wanted to know if it’s possible if I may receive another one. I just found out my cousin is having a baby and she has been trying to get pregnant for about 10 years now and I would love for her to wear the same charm around her neck…Please let me know if it’s possible.. I will send you the address.

NOT GUILTY - DUI!
Thanks to the intercession of St. Gianna I won my D.U.I case and was pronounced not guilty which is a very difficult case to win. Especially under the defense of a public defender, the trial lasted for a good 6 days and my public defender fought with every drop of blood she had for me in every way she could. Thank you St. Gianna!

BABY GIANNA HAS NO DEVELOPMENTAL DELAYS!!!
I give thanks and praise to our Lord and for St. Gianna's holy intercession. My daughter, whom I named after St. Gianna, is able to walk and does not have any developmental delays, Praise God! Her doctor was concerned because she was underweight and not walking independently at 20 months of age. After praying for St. Gianna's holy intercession, we were sent to a specialist and she told us that Gianna, my daughter, would be just fine...she was very strong, and she demonstrated abilities she had never done before such as bending down and getting up without losing balance. St. Gianna also helped me during my difficult pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Thank you Lord, Blessed Mother Mary, and Blessed St. Gianna! We LOVE you!

A GRATEFUL PHARMACIST in CANADA!
I thank St. Gianna for her continued guidance and support. I'm a pharmacist to a mainly pediatric population, in a very busy pharmacy, and I have asked for help in recommending the right things and having peace of mind with my decisions. One situation, I was unsure of my recommendation and was losing sleep and worrying it was the wrong thing to recommend. I said a prayer asking St. Gianna for peace of mind and healing for the boy, and that very shift, in less than 2 hours after I arrived, the father came back to thank me for my help. His boy was much better!

Thank you Saint Gianna for my family and for helping me to pass my rotation exam!
By: Jim K., November 22, 2011
My name is Kevin W. My wife and I visited a church last January, 2011 for a presentation following Mass from the Saint Gianna Society. My wife at the time was pregnant with our second child, who had been diagnosed with severe fetal hydrocephalus. We were urged by doctors to terminate the pregnancy, which WE DID NOT DO. The service we attended was the most touching and emotional service I had ever been to. I am Catholic, but as my wife is a Protestant, do not attend church regularly. I am a confirmed Catholic, but have not been practicing in my adult life. When we found out news of our unborn, I had momentarily lost my faith. It soon was returned by the help of the Society's presentation in January in a Catholic church in Rockaway, NJ. Forgive me I do not remember the church's name.
My son, Austin, who is now seven months old today, is deemed by doctors to have no neurological issues in life. This after my wife and I were told that he would have severe brain damage due to the hydrocephalus. He was shunted at 5 weeks old and has since met nearly every milestone a child his age should. Our son is a normal, seven month old, happy baby boy. My wife and I cannot begin to describe how we feel that the doctors were right in their prognosis and diagnosis, but Austin is the way he is today due to more divine interventions.
I am writing to inquire when the Society might be in the northeast area, New York or New Jersey, in the coming months? The day we went last January, my wife using the relics of Saint Gianna, placed them on her stomach area in the hopes of complete healing. We were granted this miracle, and would like it so much to come to another service and say thank you!
If someone could guide us to another service that is scheduled in our area we would greatly appreciate it. I have checked the webpage prior to this email, and the schedule only goes to early December, and not in our region.
Thanks so much for your time and prayers.

CALL FROM ST. G!!! HEALTHY BABY!!!
Thank You, St G. I had been praying to St Gianna for a few months to have a healthy baby. After a few months I did conceive. During my 6th week of pregnancy I started bleeding. I thought for sure I was having a miscarriage. I just started praying to St Gianna that my baby would be ok and then I said to God, "Ok, if you have to take the baby, please help me to cope with the loss and then help me to conceive again soon". As soon as I said that the phone rang. I was still very upset, so I did not look at the caller ID, I just answered the phone. It was the wrong number. As I hung the phone up, I looked at the caller ID and it read "St G". I knew that St Gianna had heard my prayer. Three months ago, with the help of God and St Gianna, I delivered a healthy baby girl. Thank you, St G. St Gianna, please help me to coneive again and have another healthy baby soon.

We were able to complete our family through adoption. Adoption is a roller coaster ride, very much like dealing with infertility (which we also did.) I know I prayed to St. Gianna while we were waiting for a child, and I know a friend of mine prayed for us as well. We now have a beautiful daughter and we hope that our friends who are adopting will have a child soon as well. Thank you.

BIRTH OF KIARA GIANNA in CANADA!
I would like to share my testimony about the intercession of St Gianna in my life. I conceived in September 2010, and we were very excited at the news. We have a 6 year old son and we were eager to extend our family. However, at 11 weeks, I started bleeding from a clot in the uterus and my doctor said there is nothing to do at this stage but to wait and watch. We were devastated and I was desperate to save my pregnancy. Some months earlier, I had attended a pro life meeting and someone had very briefly mentioned St Gianna's name at that time. When I was faced with this situation, the saint came to my mind, but I did not have any information on her. I searched the Internet until I came to this website and I read the testimonies and started saying her prayer and novena. I also said the consecration prayer that St Gianna prayed to Mother Mary. I promised the saint that we would visit her shrine and if I had a baby girl, I would name her after the saint. I prayed fervently and by the end of 15 weeks my bleeding stopped. Then when I was around 5 months pregnant I slipped on the ice and fell on my stomach. I continued to pray for a safe pregnancy, always asking St Gianna to help me as a mother and friend. I am thrilled to state that we now have a beautiful baby girl born on June 16th 2011, whom we have named Kiara Gianna, and we look forward to visiting her shrine. We never pass an opportunity to spread the word about St Gianna and are very grateful to the saint who truly is a wonderful friend to have.

PCOS - 2 YEARS INFERTILE - PREGNANCY in the UK!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I posted an intercession in September 2010 following over 2 years of trying to conceive and various fertility drugs (I have PCOS). I was almost at rock bottom and our marriage was suffering. After praying with the prayer cards that had been touched with your gloves, just 3 months later I found out I was pregnant (2 days after Christmas). It was a miracle after all that time. I then had a threatened miscarriage in the first trimester which we got through and we are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of our little miracle baby girl. Thank you so much for interceding for us, we pray now for a safe arrival for our baby girl in the next few weeks. THANK YOU!!!

OUR MIRACLE BABY - LOW AMNOTIC FLUID from NEW ZEALAND!
Dear St. Gianna, I've learnt a lot about you throughout my pregnancy and I have my mother-in-law to thank. She posted a petition asking you to bless my baby and also gave me a St. Gianna medal to protect my baby and myself during this difficult pregnancy. In the early stage of my pregnancy, my antenatal screening results showed that I had normal nuchal translucency but an increased risk of Trisomy 18 (neural tube defects or some rare metabolic or genetic disorders). My heart sank when I was told of this but I wouldn’t give up on this baby even when I was told again at my 18th week that I had low amniotic fluid surrounding my baby boy. At one stage I only had one pocket of fluid measuring at 1.1 cm. Our doctors gave us the option to abort our baby before 20 weeks but this was not an option for us because it had taken us 4 years to get pregnant. So we made it clear to our obstetrician that we will continue the pregnancy and give our baby a chance. At 28 weeks pregnant, my water broke and I was put on strict bed rest in the hospital for a further 2 weeks until I went into labour and had baby Liam via Emergency C-section. I was in tears when I first heard Liam cry and we were shocked to know that he came out breathing on his own. Liam stayed in NICU for six weeks and each day he was striving with little support on his breathing and had consistently gained weight. Liam is now 5 months old and he is like any other normal baby, happy, and growing well. He is our miracle baby and I am forever grateful for St. Gianna interceding for our family. Thank you St. Gianna and our Heavenly Father for answering our prayers.

SCOLIOSIS IS GONE!
Our daughter Amanda had been diagnosed with scoliosis when she was 10. Someone from the Saint Gianna Society came to her school with St. Gianna's glove. Following the end of the Mass, Amanda had the glove of St. Gianna placed on her back. When new x-rays were taken a few months later, she showed no signs of scoliosis! Amanda is now going on 16 and I thank St. Gianna every day for helping our daughter!

A MOTHER'S SECRET SAINT!
I have been wondering for two years if St. Gianna was with me during the birth of our fourth child. I have told very few people about it, as I felt someone might think I am crazy. I hemorraged afterbirth and had to receive two units of blood. After I was sent home I was readmitted weekly and received four surgeries to save my uterus. In the end I had to receive an emergency hysterectomy. I had never heard of St. Gianna, but she came in an email from Catholic online. Then again on Facebook was Gianna, the prolife speaker. We were going to name our little one Charlotte, but when she was born. I said to my husband that she needs to be Gianna and next girl could be Charlotte. After she was named was when I had to battle for my life and my uterus. I am not someone special, just a stay-at-home Mom. I truly believe St. Gianna was with me and gave me such great peace during this time. I am scared to say anything to people as I think it is wrong to speak of such things unless the Church agrees that this could have happened.
[Editor's Comment: The Church permits us to speak of God's great graces through the intercession of His Saint. See all of the "thank you's" and "testimonies" on this website for further information.]

GLOVES WARM ON FEASTDAY!
My family traveled from New York to take part in St. Gianna's Feast Day celebration on April 28th. I am seven months pregnant and have been praying to St. Gianna to please heal my unborn baby who is expected to be born with birth defects. When I held Gianna's gloves on my belly, I felt an overwhelming sense of warmth, one that could not really be explained, the heat radiated up my body and my face and ears were also very hot, I felt truly blessed. When I gave the glove back to one of the ladies at the church she said it was very warm and that this usually was a sign of St. Gianna's intercession. I pray everyday that Gianna blesses our baby and brings us a miracle. I feel like she has already answered all our prayers. We love you St. Gianna!

FROM SPAIN, TEARS IN AMNIOTIC SAC
Recently I was admitted into hospital as I was losing amniotic fluid at 16 weeks. This was devastating as we were told that the odds were not in our favour and that we were in a serious situation. I was put on total bedrest and so I had plenty of time to research and find as much support on the topic as I could. This was when I came across Saint Gianna. I prayed to her whilst I was lying in bed hoping that God would listen to me. My prayers were answered and the 2 tears in the amniotic sac have since repaired themselves which is a miracle.
By: Eleanor M., Madrid, SPAIN, May 7, 2011
Thank you St. Gianna for touching my heart, letting me know that you heard my prayers. I received a sign on your feast day, and know you will continue to intercede for me.

I know St. Gianna, you will continue to bless me and my new life now.

Wonderful News!!! Dear St. Gianna thank you for interceding! My daughter is newly pregnant and her husband and her are so elated over this news. She has been praying to you daily since I told her about you. Please be with her during this pregnancy that she can carry this child to full term and that it may be healthy. They have both so wanted to have a child. My husband and I were so blessed to be able to be introduced to St. Gianna and be able to touch her gloves and deeply pray. I know you were put in our life during this difficult time and I am so thankful that your life came to us in New Jersey. You are such a part of our lives.

St. Gianna, after being told by my fertility doctor that I had less than 1% chance of ever having a baby due to my high FSH levels, I am now 6 weeks pregnant. I found out during Easter Holy Week and know this is truly an miracle of God. My husband, D, and I have a lot of faith and hope. Please pray for us, St. Gianna, that this baby may thrive in my womb and grow healthy and strong. Please pray for us, St. Gianna, that D and I may be able to deliver a normal and healthy child of God. With all my heart, mind, and soul, I pray. Amen.

FEASTDAY TESTIMONY - NO "abnormality"!!!
I have been praying to St. Gianna since September of 2010, when I first learned about her at a mother's group meeting at church. That very same day I started spotting (I was only 8 weeks pregnant) and soon after suffered a miscarriage. I continued to read more about St. Gianna and prayed to her. I even had the opportunity to touch her relics when they traveled to our church a few weeks later. In March of 2011, I learned I was pregnant again but was concerned because I didn't feel pregnant and I was worried about having another miscarriage. Around the same time, I also noticed a painful lump in my left breast. Within a week, I made an appointment with my OB/GYN. The doctor felt the lump, and immediately wrote a prescription for a mammogram. Because I was pregnant, I had an ultrasound instead. The day of my ultrasound, I started spotting. The radiologist performed the ultrasound and found a small "abnormality" in my breast and insisted that I have an ultrasound guided breast biopsy. Within the next couple of days, I suffered another miscarriage. I turned again to St. Gianna and asked for her intercession. Six days after my first ultrasound, I went in for my biopsy. The radiologist spent 20 minutes looking for this "abnormality" and could not find it. He even had to bring in the films from the previous ultrasound. Lying there, I could see the dark shadow of this "abnormality" on the films, but the monitor showed absolutely nothing. Because I was no longer pregnant, the doctor wanted me to have a mammogram. They tried to call my doctor's office to get a referral but being Good Friday, the office was closed. They scheduled the mammogram for today, April 28 (St. Gianna's feast day). I had the mammogram this morning, which came back completely normal, and also had another ultrasound. This too showed nothing abnormal. I truly believe what was there before is now gone because of St. Gianna's intercession. Thanks be to God, and thank you to St. Gianna for this amazing little miracle!

PREGNANT WITH CANCER
In thanksgiving for the intercession of St. Gianna. I was 7 weeks pregnant when I was diagnosed with a stage 3 rectal cancer. That was when I first learned of St. Gianna (back in 2002). I was 40 at the time pregnant with my fourth child, working as a Nurse Practitioner caring for frail elderly, so I could especially relate to St. Gianna. It was recommended that I terminate my pregnancy, and abort the baby, so I went through a lot of pressure from doctors, as well as others at the time. Now 9 yrs later I have a beautiful healthy boy Mark Andrew, and I also am alive and in good health.

Thank you so much to St. Gianna for helping to heal my blepharitis. One day this past January, in a desperate plea for help, I prayed to God to please send me someone who can help me with very painful blepharitis that I had been experiencing for almost two years. I have been to 6 different Opthomologists in the past 2 years, none of whom have been able to get the blepharitis under control. After being on many different medications, not being able to wear contacts or make-up, just for my eyes to get worse, has been most frustrating and upsetting and I had fallen into a depression from the constant daily eye pain. One doctor even said to me last summer, "I'm sorry, but we've tried everything and there's nothing more we can do for you." Before going to sleep that particular night this past January, I prayed to God to please send me someone to help me with the blepharitis. I googled various saints and fell asleep. The next morning I woke up, checked my blackberry to see if I received any calls, and on the home screen of my phone was this website of St. Gianna of which I do not remember clicking on at all. I had never heard of St. Gianna up to this point, and started reading about her and took notice that she was a physician. I decided to take this as a sign for a prayer answered from God and prayed her novena. After finishing the novena, approximately one week later, I was directed to an Opthomologist who deals with the "difficult cases of blepharitis" and within 2 weeks total of praying to St. Gianna, my eyes were on the path to healing with the constant daily eye pain virtually gone. This Opthomologist has been able to put me on the correct daily regimen of antibiotics, warm soaks, lid scrubs, steriod drops, and has been able to figure out my allergies to the medications which no other doctor has been able to do. I truly believe that two miracles happened here...one that I discovered St. Gianna on my phone and the second that my blepharitis is on its way to getting completely healed. I was so thankful to St. Gianna, that 2 weeks ago I went from NY to Pennsylvania to her shrine to touch her glove in a most moving experience. I am so grateful to St. Gianna and to the wonderful men and women who have created this website to make her name known because this is how I discovered her. I truly believe that St. Gianna is very powerful and will do all I can to help spread her name. I am forever grateful to her! Thank you so much to St. Gianna from the bottom of my heart..I love you!

LYME DISEASE. -- HIGH FEVER --- SAINT GIANNA'S RELICS
Lyme Disease. I am a 38 yr old mother of two boys ages 11 and 12. I have been married to my high school sweatheart for 17 years. After 5 long years of trying to conceive we were blessed with two perfect children. Life was perfect and we were enjoying every minute of it until one day I fell very ill. I was so sick I couldn\'t drive or take care of my kids. My hair was falling out, I couldn\'t feel my legs, shortness of breath, lost part of my vision, severe migraines, stiff neck, skin lessions, cerebral perfusion, neuropathy, sinus and ear infections and it felt like everyday there was something new. I saw over 20 doctors in a 10 month period and no one could figure out what was causing me to be this sick. finally almost a year later I found a wonderful doctor who is truely an angel and was diagnosed with late stage lyme or neuro lyme plus a co-infection called Bartonella. I had no idea what the next year was going to bring and how my life was going to change. I continued to pray everyday a nd I knew god was listening because it only took a year to get diagnosed and not 5 or 10 years like most lyme patients. In August of 2010 I began the first round of treatment and it was very scary. By October my doctor had told me I needed to be on IV antibiotics because the orals ones were not strong enough to kill this bacteria. So I started IV therapy for 21 days and had severe complications. I thought maybe my body had enough antibiotics and I would be in remission so I came off for a few weeks. Unfortunatly by December My blood work was very bad and I landed in the hospital. I had no choice but to go back on IV antibiotics. Everything went well for the first few days until I ended up back in the hospital with a blood clot. The doctors decided to put me on blood thinners and put a different line in for the IV. Again the same thing happened and the line had to be removed. I still needed this treatment and the only other option was to have the IV put in my hand for the next 4 weeks. So nurses continued to come and see me every 4 days. I had bloodwork every week and saw the doctor every other week. this went on for 3 months. I had a fever for the entire 3 months until one day I went to church and saw a presentation of St. Gianna\'s Relics. Now that night I hadn\'t slept from being in intense pain and I had a fever of 101.2. This was something I did not want to miss and I knew no matter how sick was I had to be there. After the service we were asked to come up and touch the relics while saying a special prayer. I had an IV in my right arm and used my left to hold my grandmother's rosary beads along with my husbands hands. My children put their hands on top as well and we prayed. I felt like I was on fire and couldn't stand up. I was so sick the rest of the day and couldn't get out of bed. The next day I woke to something I hadn't felt in a long time NO FEVER! When the nurse came to check on me she said how was your weekend? I said I felt terrible but today I feel like I have more life in me. She that's because you don't have a fever anymore. She wanted to know exactly what I had done and I said St. Gianna! From that day forward I have continued to be blessed. I have had some minor set backs but I am hoping by May I am in remission. I am still waiting for a brain spect scan and additioanl bloodwork to be done but I am hopeful they will now be normal. My headaches have gone from everyday to now about once a week. I continue to pray and carry my rosary and card with me at all times. I will report the good news in about 2 months or sooner. God bless!

BABY GIANNA MARIA!
This is the testimony of my grand-daughter’s birth with the help of our Lord Jesus Christ and St. Gianna. My daughter called me in January of 2010 to tell me that she was pregnant with her second child. She was approximately three weeks pregnant at the time and had not visited her doctor as yet. When she went for her first appointment, they performed an ultrasound. The technician asked the doctor to come in to view her test. The ultrasound showed that there were blood clots in the uterus with the baby, but so far the baby was doing ok. The Dr. wanted to have more blood work done to see why there were blood clots. He told my daughter there was a chance she could lose the baby since the clots could take up too much space and the baby would not be able to grow and survive. There was also a risk for my daughter to develop blood clots. My daughter needed to see a specialist. The blood-work results showed my daughter had a genetic defect on Factor 2 of the clotting tree. This made her produce clots thirty times greater than the normal pregnant woman. This condition put both her and the baby at high risk. The Dr. said that this issue doesn’t occur with every pregnancy, but you don’t know when it might show up. Each pregnancy would be different. My daughter’s first child was a boy and she had a “textbook” pregnancy with no complications. I am an RN and knew the risks were great. I was very concerned for my daughter and her unborn baby. The Dr. stated that this condition was fairly common but had only been discovered around 1996. He prescribed an anti-blood clotting injection called Lovenox. She would be required to take this injection daily until six weeks before her due date which would be November 2nd. I began praying that day for them both and asked the Lord to send an angel to watch over them. As the medication worked, the clots lessened and I was grateful, but continued to pray. On my daughter's next ultrasound, we found out she was carrying a little girl. My daughter was shocked, and I was thrilled. She had once told me she was "only going to have boys". Our Lord had other plans. I am of Italian heritage and my daughter married a man who is also of Italian descent. Since they had named their son Joseph after both of their grand-fathers, I was hoping they might use my middle name Ann and/or Marie, which was my confirmation name as well as Brian’s mother’s middle name. I went on the internet to look up Italian girl names. I liked the name Gia, but as I scanned down to the next name I noticed the name Gianna. It sounded so beautiful since it had the beginning name of Gia and Anna. I thought, why not Gianna Marie. So I read about the history of the name and learned about St. Gianna and how she was the patron saint of women with fertility problems and difficult pregnancies. I thought it was God’s way of letting me know this was the perfect name for my unborn grand-daughter. I asked my daughter if she was thinking of girl names and she said she had a few. I felt so strongly about the name Gianna, but I had to convince her that this was the right name . So, I told her how I found the name and believed it was a sign from our Lord to name the baby Gianna Marie. I continued to pray and asked St. Gianna to watch over them both. My daughter talked it over with her husband who liked the name but didn’t say much about whether it was one to “keep in the running” or not. I didn’t ask about the name decision for a few more weeks. My daughter did well up to her 32nd week of pregnancy. Then I received a call telling me she was leaking placenta fluid. Of course I was panicked. She couldn’t have the baby this early, she wasn’t due for 8 more weeks! I felt helpless and started to pray for help from God to please let her keep the baby and not have any complications. I rushed to the hospital to be with my daughter. She was sleeping when I arrived, but she was happy I was with her. They gave her medication to stop her labor and kept her on bed-rest. Seven days later she was still in the hospital. She was still slowly leaking fluid but was only having infrequent contractions. At six o’clock on the morning of September 14th, the baby reached 33 weeks. I received a call from Brian. He said the baby was born at 4:30 this morning. I asked what happened. He said my daughter was starting to have contractions so the nurses turned her onto her side. When they did the baby’s heart rate bottomed out. They had to perform an emergency C-section. Both my daughter and baby were fine. The baby weighed 4 pounds 12 ounces and was 16 inches long. The baby was born before he was able to get to the hospital. I was very happy to hear the news and thanked God for letting them both be healthy. My son-in-law said, “Don’t you want to know what name we decided on”? I was so grateful they were both OK, I had forgotten to ask about the baby’s name. He said, “We decided on Gianna Maria”. I started to tear up. I was so happy and knew it was through God’s grace and St. Gianna’s help that both my daughter and grand-daughter were healthy. This isn’t the end of this story. Baby Gianna Marie and mother are doing fine. Gianna didn’t require any help with breathing. She just had oxygen but no breathing tube. She had to stay in the hospital for three weeks until she developed her ability to suckle. She gained weight and the nurses said she was, “ a feisty little girl”. I replied, “Just like her mother”. Gianna has steadily gained weight and will be six month old this month on March 14th. Today we attended my niece and nephew's Confirmation up in Toledo, Ohio . My daughter drove and brought Gianna with her. As we were driving she said, “Mom, did I tell you I went on-line to read more about St. Gianna to learn more about her story”? I said, “No, what did you find out”? She said, “Did know she had 3 children and one daughter was named Laura”? I didn’t know that. I said, “Laura, now I know for certain it was our Lord who directed me to the name of Gianna and it was through His help and St. Gianna watching over them both that helped keep them safe and both able to survive this high risk pregnancy. With all my heart, I thank you Jesus and St. Gianna for your intercession and for my beautiful daughter and grand-daughter.

PREGNANCY AFTER 13 YEARS!
I am so happy to announce that after 15 years of marriage and 13 years of trying to conceive, we have been blessed with a pregnancy. I am about three months pregnant now and I want to thank Saint Gianna and our Heavenly Father for this wonderful blessing. I have PCOS and was told that it would be very hard, even impossible, for me to conceive a child. But with much faith and prayers, we have proven so many "specialists" wrong. My husband and I traveled from Southeastern NORTH CAROLINA to Warminster, PA in November 2010 to visit Saint Gianna's Shrine and I truly believe that that trip was a blessed trip and is why after many years of sadness and wanting a child we are now awaiting our first little angel. Thank you, Saint Gianna.

BABY GIANNA MARIE and her MOM were PROTECTED BY OUR SAINT!
Thank you for being my daughter and grand-daughter's protector. My daughter learned early in her pregnancy that she had an unknown clotting problem which could have ended her pregnancy. The Lord helped me search for an Italian girl's name and when I read about the name Gianna I knew it would be the right name for my grand-daughter. I began to pray daily that my daughter carried her baby girl safely. My daughter went into labor at 32 weeks. At 33 weeks the baby went into distress, but was safely delivered by emergency C-section. Gianna Marie was born on September 14, 2010 and will be 6 months old tomorrow. Thank you for your intercession in the safety of both my daughter Laura and my beautiful miracle baby Gianna Marie.

MOTHER WANTS A NATURAL DELIVERY
My husband and I have praying the novena to St. Gianna for the movement of my placenta so that I can have my baby naturally instead of C-section due to placenta previa. I just got home from seeing my OB GYN for another ultrasound and check up to follow up on my placenta previa and I am happy to say St. Gianna has answered our prayers! The doctor said that the placenta needed to be 2 centimeters away from my cervix to deliver naturally, and as of today my placenta was 6.4 centimeters away! Two weeks ago it was at 0.57 centimeters! That's amazing, miraculous movement!! So, all of that being said... Thank You Saint Gianna for listening to and answering my prayers!

PREGNANCY with TWIN GIRLS!
After many months of trying to get pregnant, I found this website and requested prayers for St. Gianna's intercession. I continued to pray and within a month's time we received the good news. I am pregnant! Shortly thereafter we learned that God had not only granted us one blessing but two: we are expecting twin girls this summer!! This pregnancy has been difficult at times already and I face some medical uncertainty in the future, but when I am weak I continue to pray for St. Gianna's intercession and strength. I thank everyone who prayed for us. May God bless you all.

HER THIRD TESTIMONY!!!
This is the THIRD testimony that I am writing (my most recent testimony is #2) to show my gratitude for St. Gianna's recent intercession. For about 3 weeks starting in January, I had been starting to feel more fatigued especially going up stairs and walking for long stints. Also, I was vomiting quite a bit, and it would also be a brownish color. Finally, on February 10,2011, I could not make it from my parking space to the front door of my place of work without sitting on the concrete for 15 minutes to catch my breath. My heart was absolutely RACING. The nurse took care of me at my place of work and I was brought to a local hospital. Little did I know, my hemoglobin was a 4: I was seriously bleeding somewhere internally. The doctors finally figured out (after having 9 transfusions of blood to get my hemoglobin up to approximately a 6) after a colonoscopy and endoscopy that I have lesions from my throat to my stomach. They later told me that many people with a hemoglobin of a 4 suffer cardiac arrest, suffer organ shutdown, but here I was WALKING into the emergency room. So, the diagnosis was a near fatal GI tract bleed and also a serious pneumonia that I contracted in the hospital. My hemoglobin has now, with the help of all the doctors, nurses, and the intercession of St. Gianna, is now a 10.1 and I am doing better in terms of my pneumonia.

STILL PREGNANT AFTER MISCARRIAGE!
After becoming pregnant in May of 2010 I was 8 weeks pregnant and passed a small baby during a miscarriage. A month later I was still feeling ill but had not had any bleeding or cramping that typically accompanied a miscarriage. After two blood tests confirming high but falling hormone levels I asked for an ultrasound. The day of the appointment I silently asked Saint Gianna if it was possible to be within God's Will that we might have another baby still there. I went into the ultrasound and sure enough there was a second beautiful baby, perfectly healthy. Feb 8th I am due to deliver Paul Maximilian by C-section thanks to our generous God and the loving intercession of Saint Gianna

NO MASS COMPRESSING SPINE OF 14 YEAR OLD!
I had requested prayers for my friend's fourteen year old son, Niles, who is still hospitalized with a mass compressing his spine. The doctors thought it was most likely a tumor, but biopsy revealed a quite treatable infection from which he is expected to recover fully. Thanks to St. Gianna and her kind friends who prayed for Miles. His parents are overjoyed.

HUSBAND'S BLOOD PRESSURE DOWN!
We went to a Mass where we were able to touch St. Gianna's glove. My husband put it on his heart and chest, and has since had 100% perfect blood pressure - something he has struggled with, and was praying for when touching it. I don't know what's involved in attributing this to her, but it seems to be an absolute miracle! He's revisiting his doctor next month, and was supposed to be on medication but has not been taking it regularly, which makes it seem even more miraculous.

LADY WHO HELPS OTHERS
I work at a homeless shelter for men in New Hampshire and the wife of one of my coworkers was to have a baby but she never would go full term and has had premature babies in the past. He (James K), his wife and I prayed to St. Gianna to bless her and the baby in hopes that she would carry a little longer than what she normally had and miraculously she carried full term for the very first time and had a healthy baby born to her. We own this miracle to God and St. Gianna. I love St. Gianna. I have loved her since I first saw her picture about 5 years ago. I also was in the hospital being a friend in the emergency room and there was a mother crying in the hallway. A nurse was comforting her about her baby in one of the emergency rooms. After the nurse left I went over to her and told her about St. Gianna. I told the woman that I would pray to St. Gianna to bless her baby. About 45 mins to one hour later. I saw the mother come out of the room all smiles. I looked at her as she was following the doctors down the hallway with her baby and she said, "the fever broke. My baby is going to be alright!" She was so happy. I was too. I truly believe that God worked a miracle through St. Gianna. These events all happened this year within a month or two of each other.

Please continue to watch over and protect her. I simply cannot thank you enough!

BLESSINGS OF CHILDREN
My name is Fanny. I am looking for St. Gianna Prayer Cards in Spanish. My daughter has been blessed with two beautiful daughters, by the grace of God and through the intercession of St. Gianna. My first granddaughter is named after St. Gianna and my second granddaughter was born on the feast of St. Gianna. We are firm believers in her miracles.
My husband and I are directors of a prayer group at the parish of St. Luke's Catholic Church in Palm Harbor, Fl. We are called "Angeles de San Lucas". And we would like some prayer cards of St. Gianna in Spanish. We would like them just as you have them in English, with the day of her feast.
If you don't have them could you please direct us to where we could get them.
Thank you so much
Fanny and Freddy
[Editor's note: We have the holy cards in Spanish]

NO/LOW AMNIOTIC FLUID!
My name is Gianna M....... W........ I thought I would contact you about an experience that is going on in my life.
When I found out I was pregnant in January of this year, my mom gave me a St. Gianna medal to protect my baby and myself and hopefully help the doctors that treated me throughout my term. I wore the necklace daily and prayed to St. Gianna for help and protection.
On May 3, 2010, in my 19th week of pregnancy, I learned that I had low/no amniotic fluid surrounding my baby boy. Fluid levels in a normal pregnancy are about 13 cm and mine was at 2 cm. The doctors informed my husband and me of the importance of the amniotic fluid when it comes to lung development. We were told he would be born unable to breathe due to lack of lung development. The doctors made it very clear to us that we could abort our baby before 24 weeks so we could prevent the inevitable and "start over". Distraught, my husband and I let all the doctors know that we were going to continue the pregnancy and give our baby a chance. I immediately got the feeling they thought we were crazy. But, with my strong husband leading the way, our little family moved forward in faith and hope. I was put on strict bedrest at home starting May 3. On June 6 at 24 weeks (6 months) pregnant, my water broke and I lost the little fluid I had supporting the baby. I was hospitalized for premature rupture of membranes and was to stay at the hospital until I delivered. This usually happens within 2 weeks after rupture. 5 weeks later at 29 weeks gestation, on July 9th, I went into labor and my baby John was born via C section. We were all shocked when he came out breathing on his own and crying a little. Johnny has been staying in the NICU since then with very little support and breathing on his own . The neonatologist informed us that his lungs are not operating any different than any other premie at his age. She said she would never guess he did not have any fluid when in the womb if she didn't know our history. He is my first experience of a miracle. He does have some other issues that we must take care of down the line. He has a cleft lip and palate and a clubbed foot--both can be corrected by surgery when he is a little older. We are waiting on some chromosomal tests to see if he has any genetic disabilities or syndromes that would have caused these issues. This is scary to me. Please pray for our baby to be well and happy.
I am letting the Shrine of St. Gianna know our story because I learned about another miracle that occured with a woman who had little fluid during pregnancy. This is one of the miracles that made St. Gianna a saint, correct? Also, it is quite a coincidence that St. Gianna and I share the same name.
Thank you for what you do to spread love and peace in our world and thanks for letting me share our story. I will continue to pray to St. Gianna to help our son continue to improve in mind body and spirit and for my husband and me to stay strong and full of faith.

ONE MOTHER'S SACRIFICE - HEALTHY BABY!
I want to thank St. Gianna for helping me through the delivery of our child. I prayed for her intercession to make sure that our child would be born safely and healthy. I asked that if anything were to happen that I would be the one to bear it. As it happened, the baby was born safely and I hemorraged due to an unknown case of placenta accreta. Through the chaos that ensued and the doctors and nurses working on me, I was completely at peace and was able to use St. Gianna's story as a source of strength and comfort. My uterus was miraculously saved as well as my life. By the next morning I felt great. Thank you St. Gianna for your intercession, your strength, and your compassion.

INFERTILITY - THEN CONCEPTION AFTER PRAYING NOVENA - BIRTH OF GIANNA MARIE ON DAY AFTER FEAST DAY!
My husband and I got married in 2007 and had tried to have children for over two and a half years. After several failed fertility treatments including a miscarriage, we gave up and were thinking about adoption. Then, I read in a Catholic newspaper about the life of St. Gianna and how she has helped numerous couples with infertility problems. I went online and got her novena. My husband and I prayed the novena and to our surprise I found out I was pregnant few weeks later, without any treatment. The pregnancy was uneventful. On April 28th, 2010, day of St. Gianna’s death, it was decided to perform a C-section since the baby was still floating at 41 weeks. Gianna Marie was born on April 29th 2010, she is a healthy, sweet, beautiful baby. Thank you St. Gianna for your intercession!

CONCEPTION ON FEASTDAY!
I have news for you... I am 8 weeks pregnant!!!!!!!!!! Saint Gianna, you've helped again! Anyway, I was totally shocked and surprised as well as my doctor! 3 natural conceptions for a woman who should have had a hysterectomy by now!! I had an ultrasound today and new baby is doing really well. I am nervous because my progesterone went down a little and I am on supplements, but the doctor is not worried at all. It was so amazing to see my baby moving around today and the tiny heartbeat going strong. I am so blessed I cannot tell you. And, the strange part... my due date is Feb. 2 and guess what day they count from to tell the weeks of pregnancy.. April 28!! Coincidence, I think not!!!
Please pray for me and my family. I cannot believe this!!! God has been so good to me.

COMPLICATED PREGNANCY, BUT HEALTHY BABY!
I have a complicated OB history with a complicated pregnancy followed by pregnancy losses. Last September, I became pregnant again. Similar problems began. I had different doctors this time who got me thru the first trimester and early part of the second. By 23 weeks, I began bleeding. I began to pray to St. Gianna. The bleeding soon stopped, and a few weeks ago, I delivered a healthy baby boy. No birth defects from the meds I was on, just healthy and strong. Thank you Saint Gianna!

Our son Gianni was named after Saint Gianna because my wife Dina was having a difficult pregnancy. He was born on March 31, 2004 and was healthy. At age 4 he was diagnosed with Rhabdomayo sarcoma stage 3, a very rare childhood cancer. We prayed to Saint Gianna to intercede again for him so that God would cure this disease. We prayed and asked Saint Gianna to guide the doctors and nurses so Gianni would be cured of this disease. After 43 weeks of chemotherapy and 28 radiation treatments Gianni is in remission and we had our first scan on May 18th and they saw no more cancer. We know Saint Gianna was a doctor of modern medicine so I believe she did help in curing him.

One month later, I found out I was pregnant. It was such a wonderful and happy surprise after the miscarriage of our second child. I had a sonogram last week and saw a heartbeat. Dear Santa Gianna, please stay with me through my pregnancy to keep my baby healthy and strong and for a safe pregnancy and delivery. Grazie tante!

A MOTHER'S THANK YOU
FOR HER BABY GIANNA JOHN PAUL MARIA
I am writing this email to thank Saint Gianna Molla for her help during difficult trials. Last Thursday I went to hospital to have my first trimester scan, believing that I was carrying a three month old baby. I was devastated to see and be told that the baby had died in the early stages of my pregnancy, but my body still believed it was pregnant. I was then sent home and given the choice of either waiting for my body to expel the placenta and my dead baby, or have an operation. Initially I opted for the first option, and waited for nature to take its course. However, nothing seemed to be happening. I prayed to Saint Gianna Molla and John Paul II to ask for strength. On Sunday evening, I asked them to tell Jesus to start the natural process that evening, as I was finding it unbearable to carry the remains of my poor baby. I also asked Saint Gianna and John Paul II to tell Jesus to make the process as painless as possible. I was grieving for the death of my child and I was terrified of what was going to happen to me during the expulsion of the placenta and the little body. I awoke on Monday morning feeling extremely ill. My husband rushed me to hospital where it was confirmed that the process had started. My body was not coping with it well at all, as I was developing tachycardia. I was therefore put on a list to have the operation. Whilst waiting, my health deteriorated and I experienced unimaginable emotional and psychological pain, close to despair. Only the presence of my husband, the rosary and prayers to John Paul II and Saint Gianna Molla kept me going. I promised then to John Paul II and Saint Gianna Molla that if I survived, I would write to papers and websites to tell the whole world of the power of their intercession. The operation went very well, my heart beat went back to normal, and I am now at home, recovering from the whole experience. I have named my third child after John Paul II and Saint Gianna Molla: Gianna John Paul Maria H.. I know that he or she is now in heaven, and I have asked John Paul II and Gianna Molla to look after him/her. I will never be able to thank Saint Gianna Molla and John Paul II enough for what they have done for me. I have been able to return to my family and will be able to keep raising my children (a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old boy) as well as looking after my husband and my mother. May the Lord Jesus be praised for His mercy, may his servants Saint Gianna Molla and John Paul II be praised for their love and generosity. Thank you Saint Gianna Molla and John Paul II. I will never forget what you have done for me and my family.

Thank you for passing my prayers to God. It has only been a few days since I've found out about you, but I know the intentions of God now with my life by praying to you. I know I must be patient for a loved one these next 2 years and I know it will be hard, but this is just the storm before the calm sky. I will make myself closer to God and help me to be a better person for my loved one. Thank you for keeping me from thinking thoughts that may cause me to hurt myself. Thank you for being a friend, St. Gianna.

No April Fool's Joke: MISCARRIAGE - BIRTH, PLUS JOB FOUND!
I want to tell you that in November, 2009, while attending Mass at Immaculate Conception Church, we were able to hold St. Gianna's gloves and we also received the pamphlet which told the story of St. Gianna's special intercession for favors, especially for mothers with difficult pregnancies. That same evening, the father of our niece, Jane ( who is my husband's younger brother, Rick ) was going to be visiting us on a stopover business trip....one night only. We knew of Jane's 1st miscarriage and difficulty to conceive after 5 years of marriage (and her mother had miscarried in earlier years so this was going to be tough indeed ). I just knew, however, after hearing the brief story of St. Gianna, that God had designed all of these events to happen for a reason - after all, IC was not our Parish Church and we were attending an earlier Mass in order to be home in time for our brother's visit ( from Canada ). In a late night talk, I explained to Rick about the intercession to Saint Gianna and the miracles attributed to her. I told him that the prayers for Jane, Adam, and the unborn child ( 4 months in the womb ) had already begun. Their family is Presbyterian and they are good, faith-filled Christians, but of course, Saints and intercessory prayer?? well.....but I sensed his enthusiastic acceptance. After all, I as the Auntie here - why would I NOT pray hard ??? I also gave him the prayer card and pamphlet to give to Jane when he returned to Canada, and to let her know of the day's interesting events and of our prayers. Following Mass that Saturday in November, my husband and I also prayed for other things: earler, in June, he had become suddenly "under-employed" (he is very dedicated and hard-working, experienced businessman), and it seemed as though life was taking a very challenging turn for us in this terrible economic time. I knew, however, that God does NOT forsake His little ones. I am so happy and thankful to tell you that our niece, Jane gave birth to a BEAUTIFUL baby Girl, Isabella Mary ( 7lb. 8 oz. ) after a very wonderful pregnancy this time and a perfect delivery - and little Isabella Mary was born one day early - on my birthday !!! April 1st - no fooling - and also, the best part: it was HOLY THURSDAY!! So when I received the message after arriving home from Mass, I KNEW that St. Gianna's intercession and the grace of God had prevailed....AND I tell everyone I know that this precious child is the result of much prayer - and that she is already such a great blessing to our family. Oh, and one more thing: on Friday, March 19, the FEAST of St. JOSEPH, my husband, Tom accepted an offer for a new job as a VP of a very fine Company - please understand that there are no jobs out there right now, esp at this level. He and I both know why these blessings have been granted to us and to our family. Glory and praise to our God that He has heard our prayers - and a picture of St. Gianna sits on my dressing table to remind us every day and night - that she heard our requests and passed them to the Lord for His consideration. I would be an April fool not to tell you this wonderful news -and if it will help or encourage anyone, then let them understand this message and receive it with a humble and grateful heart. Thanks be to God, ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!

VISION OF SAINT GIANNA!
Saint Gianna was introduced to me just by a picture I had seen in my parish. When I learned a little about her, my attention drew interest as I am an OB/GYN nurse. I purchased a book about her. I asked for her help in a time of very difficult need, just last night. After praying the rosary, she came to me, comforted me, showed me the Blessed Mother fervently praying at my bedside, and reminded me of the Divine Mercy of Jesus, God's Son, watching over me and taking care of me. She let me know she is a loving mother to me, and came to me because I asked and is here to intercede with me in prayer to Jesus. Saint Gianna stayed with me in prayer, and some songs, and comforted me, all through my very hard and trying night. She spoke to me and reassured me on my motherhood and work as a nurse. She gave me courage and strength to do what is needed. I feel as though I have a companion in motherhood and nursing to help me in the remaining journey of my life, also a mother figure helping me.

5 years ago I had the opportunity to hold one of St. Gianna's gloves at the time I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. When they did the surgery they were amazed that the cancer was en-capsulate - it did not spread - no lymph nodes were involved and chemo was not needed. She blessed and took care of my cancer. I had been trying to find her and by accident stumbled on this web site because I was trying to find out when Our Lady Of Nativity was having their healing mass.
Thank you and God bless,

INFERTILITY - PREGNANT - GIANNA MARIE BORN!
Thank you! I'm not sure you remember me, but last year I wrote in hoping to buy a rosary touched by the gloves of Saint Gianna. You had mailed me a prayer card and a Saint Gianna metal (I wear it everyday). I was heartbroken that I couldn't get pregnant. I am now holding my beautiful baby girl - Gianna Marie. I conceived the month that you mailed me that prayer card. She was born on Nov. 28th 2009. I'm forever grateful to you for answering my email - with all my heart I thank you. Love, Marie

BREAST CANCER ARRESTED
After 3 months of bad news after learning I had stage 2 breast cancer, we finally got the good news that the pet scan revealed the cancer had not spread. This news came the day after the ninth night of our novena to St. Gianna. I truly believe that she interceded and gave us a miracle.

BABY GIANNA ROSE!
After my 2nd miscarriage in March '09, I discovered Saint Gianna and started asking for her intercession. Amazingly, I conceived on her feast day, April 28th. I got a prayer card and medal and kept it with me for the pregnancy. I just delivered a very healthy baby girl on Jan. 17th, 2010. We named her Gianna Rose. I can't help but get overwhelmed with emotion when I talk about my experience. Thank you Saint Gianna!

SAFE DELIVERY OF BABY #5
Thank you Saint Gianna for asking God for the safe delivery of my fifth baby, John Paul. Thank you also for praying for the safe delivery of baby Stephen and for the recovery of his mother, who had a dangerously low platelet count at the time of delivery. All prayers have been answered, praise be to God!
By: Debra, Florida Feb. 6, 2010
Dearest St. Gianna, My husband and I conceived in October 2009. In November I learned that I had miscarried. In fact, my pregnancy was a little unusual. I was pregnant, but not pregnant. I was pregnant without a fetus. The fetus never developed. Per my doctor, this is pretty common. When I was about 4 weeks pregnant, I came to your Shrine to pray to you and to touch your glove across my abdomen. I prayed to you to bless my unborn child with excellent health. I also asked you that if anything were to ever be unhealthy about this baby, to take the baby from us immediately. It would be unfair to the child, and to us as parents, to have to deal with the loss of a child later in life. I prayed to you to have the healthiest pregnancy, labor and delivery ever. I asked of you to bless me with a healthy happy baby. You in return noticed that the child would not be healthy and terminated my pregnancy. I will be forever grateful to you!!!

PRAYED NOVENA WHILE PREGNANT
When I was pregnant with my baby girl, I learned about St. Gianna. I prayed the novena throughout my pregnancy. I had an easy delivery and my baby was healthy. She is now 5 years old and doing very well.

A CHILD IS CONCEIVED!
Thank you, St. Gianna, for helping my husband and me to conceive our 1st baby. I had my tubes untied in March, however the doctor could only repair one side, so our chances of getting pregnant had decreased 50%. We have been trying since March with no luck! I found this website and began praying to Saint Gianna and to God...I submitted my prayer to the website and I literally was supposed to start my cycle the next day...the next day came and I started spotting....I began to think that the pregnancy didn't take....but when I hadn't had a normal cycle within 3 days, I went to the doctor and found out I was pregnant! So again thank you, St. Gianna, for blessing us!

SAVED FROM ABORTION
Thank you St. Gianna: For saving Meridith's baby. It was almost aborted. Doctors found a heartbeat at the last minute. They thought she had an empty sac. Thank you. I had a strong urge to pray to you that week out of the blue, not knowing what she was going thru. Thank you

CONCEPTION & BIRTH
Thank you St.Gianna for being with us on our journey to conceive. Upon meeting you I knew you were going to be beside us always. Our little miracle baby boy was born on Sept.18 2009. We feel blessed and special to know that you were with us and continued to whisper in God's ear our request. Your intercession and presence in our lives is immense and we will have that always. Please continue to lead us in the direction of our dreams and continue to protect our baby boy. With eternal love, gratitude and peace.

I am currently in 8th grade. I was all ready a week late to pick my saint for Confirmation. I was searching through the saints, and came across Saint Gianna. As soon as I read her story, I knew she was the saint I wanted to pick. I want to thank Saint Gianna for showing me what a true child of God should be like.

ANOTHER BABY GIANNA!
St. Gianna, I have been praying to you since I found your site. I began praying for the health of my unborn child. When I found your site, I immediately knew that you would grant my petition and that I would have a girl whom I would name Gianna. I prayed to you each day and my husband and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl on Sept. 7, 2009. I continue to pray to you each day. I can't express my gratitude enough to you. Thank you for my daughter.

baby JIANNA, COUNTRY OF UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
The Almighty has done great things for me, And holy is His Name. Through The INTERCESSION of St.Gianna My wife gave birth(Normal Delivery) to a Baby Girl on 13 Oct 2009 Tuesday.We gave her the same name of St.Jianna. Thank you St.Jianna For Your INTERCESSION and we request it in future... Divya,Baby Jianna & Jomon
By: Divya, Baby Jianna, and Jomon from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
On St. Gianna\'s feast day this year, I traveled to Nativity of Our Lord Church to participate in the Mass. At the Mass, I offered a special petition for Bernadette and Owen, who had experienced difficulty and heartbreak in their quest to adopt a little boy from Russia. A family member came forward literally at the last moment to adopt the first boy they were hoping would be theirs. The second boy had many problems and they tearfully decided that he was meant for another family. I just received word that they are in Russia right now and will soon be bringing home a beautiful boy named Sergei Andrew. In looking at the pictures of this beautiful family, it seems as if he has been theirs forever. Of course, to those who believe, we know that it is true. Thank you dear St. Gianna for answered prayers! On my next visit to the Shrine, I will bring a picture of Sergei and his mom and dad.

CHILD CARE IN THE COUNTRY OF JAPAN
My husband and I are both active duty military officers with two small boys, ages 4 and 1. Within days of moving to our new duty station in Japan, we learned that I would have to deploy and our beloved nanny would not be able to come with us as we had planned for months. I knew only a working mother would understand my need for help, so our family came to the Shrine in Warminster, Pennsylvania to pray to St. Gianna. Within days of arriving in Japan, we met a wonderful woman who is a preschool teacher wishing to study her English. I instantly knew she was St. Gianna's answer to our prayers. She now attends Mass with our family, too, despite the fact there are few Christians in Japan. When I talk to my husband and boys on the phone, they sound very happy with her and I know my children are being lovingly cared for while I am away. Although my prayer seems very small compared to the miracles I have read on this website, I am so grateful for St. Gianna interceding for our family.
Thank you St. Gianna for giving me good results on my bloodwork and restoring my levels from post menopausal to fertile.
BABY HOME FROM HOSPITAL
My great niece (Madeline Marie) came home from the hospital yesterday. Thank you St. Gianna for your intercession. Maddy is 22 days old now. Please pray that her health will not be adversely affected by her trauma at birth. Thank you. Gayle
Thank you St. Gianna! My daughter and her husband are now PREGNANT after a long time of trying!!
TWO-VESSEL CORD BABY
I visited the shrine with my family on June 1st. I received news the previous week that at 29 weeks pregnant, the doctors overlooked a 2 vessel umbilical cord which can cause heart problems, kidney problems, growth problems in the baby, and other difficulties like early labor. The doctors believe that my one artery (usually there are two) is compensating for the missing artery, therefore, my baby is thriving. I prayed at the shrine and touched St. Gianna\'s gloves. The following week, I saw a perinatal specialist who gave me another ultrasound and determined that there is NO problems with the baby\'s heart, kidneys or growth. As a matter of fact, the baby is bigger than what they would expect for a 2 vessel cord baby. My baby is expected to go full term and I should have a normal delivery in August, 2008. My baby is a girl and will be named Gianna Eve in honor of Saint Gianna.
thanks for discerning where the Lord is leading me
Thank you dear Saint Gianna for interceding for us to be given the gift of child in my womb.
PREMATURE baby GIANNA NICOLE!
Today I realize that it is because of you, St. Gianna B. Molla, that my daughter Gianna Nicole is a healthy 3 year old. Gianna was 2 months early, she was 3lbs. 6oz. I had complications my whole prgnancy. When I had my c- section the Dr. had told me that had I not made an appointment to see him when I did Gianna would not be here today. She had your name since I found out I was pregnant, and now after learning about you and other peoples stories, I truely believe in my heart that my lil miracle is here because of you. Thank you much love
My best friend's mother underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer. She is in the 5% of people who survive this surgery, but also recently learned the cancer is gone !! St. Gianna has answered our prayers and interceded for her.
I prayed for your intercession to conceive a child after trying for a few years, and the first cycle after begging you, I conceived!!! I started bleeding for a week, and again prayed for your intercession to not lose our baby. I am now 7 weeks pregnant, and I THANK YOU!!!
Thanks for intercession for my career. Thanks for the promotion, and continued prayers
MOTHER WITH CANCER DIES
My story is not a miracle in the traditional sense... In October 2000 my sister in law was diagnosed with cancer at the same time she discovered she was pregnant. She chose not to abort the baby, and she gave birth to a healthy premature daughter in March 2001. She passed away 1 year and 11 days later. Shortly afterwards, I heard about then Bl. Gianna and began praying to her for my family. Fast forward 3 years and Gianna is canonized - on my sister-in-law\'s birthday, May 16! Our parish offers a "patron saint of the year" and the first time I picked a saint for my year, who came out: St. Gianna! My brother is now engaged to a wonderful woman who is a terrific stepmom to my niece. Coincidentally, their wedding date: October 4, St. Gianna's birthday! Clearly, St. Gianna is up there praying away for my family. Thank you, St. Gianna.
St. Gianna, I cannot thank you enough for your prayers and your miracle! Our son Braden is the most precious part of our life! We love him so much! Thank you for your prayers over the last few years and for blessing us with our own miracle. It was a long road but the reward outweighs all of the bad! We love you! Love--Kim, Steve and Baby Braden
In September 2001, I discovered I was pregnant again. My previous pregnancy had not been an easy one, and while I was thrilled to be blessed with another baby, I was a little concerned about how this pregnancy would be. Between homeschooling our older son, taking care of the toddler, and working weekends in the Maternity Unit of a hospital, I was frequently exhausted. I had read about Gianna Beretta Molla (then a \"Blessed\") and found a special connection with her. Like Gianna, I too had young children at home, worked in the maternal/child medical field and had a husband who was frequently away on business. I began to draw strength from her examples of daily living and how she handled her difficult pregnancy. Having a history of low hormones, I had to give myself progesterone injections to help build up the uterine lining until about week 13. Just when I thought I would get a reprieve from needles, it was discovered that I had again become a gestational diabetic and needed to give myself insulin several times daily. This added to my worrying, but also increased my prayers. At a routine ultrasound done around 20 weeks, the scan was unable to show all four chambers of the heart and a complete brain was not visible. My doctor reassuringly told me that it was probably do to baby\'s position and she would have another scan done in a couple of weeks. I decided to put my trust in God and not push for a high-resolution ultrasound at this time. I made it through the Christmas holidays with tears and prayers and finally, a scan the first week of January showed a perfectly formed little boy with all his necessary organs! Thank you Jesus, Blessed Mother, and Blessed Gianna! All seemed to go well until I had reached my 33rd week. A vein that had been giving me trouble was found to be clotted off and not only caused severe pain, but posed a danger of the clot breaking free and traveling to my heart or brain. It was decided surgical intervention was necessary and would best be done under spinal anesthesia. All went well in the operating room, but in recovery, my blood pressure plummeted and I lost consciousness. The first thing I remember seeing was the lovely face of my coworker from OB, hooking me up to the fetal monitor and the feeling of relief as I got to hear little Patrick\'s heartbeat ticking away. After my recovery preceeded without incident, I was able to go home on bedrest (as much bedrest as you can get with small children around). The week before my scheduled C-Section, I was in the doctor\'s office for a routine non-stress test. A strong Braxton-Hicks contraction caused Patrick\'s heartrate to go from the 140\'s to the 80\'s and remain there for the duration of the contraction. I had rolled to my left side as soon as I heard the deceleration of heartrate and called out for the office nurse. The contraction wore off and the heartbeat resumed it\'s normal rate and after being monitored for several more hours, I was sent home. The non-stress test the day before the birth was fine, and although I had increasing Braxton-Hicks contractions, I felt good. This was the third baby I would be delivering by Ceserean, in the hospital unit where I worked, surrounded by knowledgable coworkers, so all seemed to be going well. On April 24, 2002 (the anniversary of the Beatification of Gianna Beretta Molla), my husband and I arrived at the hospital where I was placed on the fetal monitor and an IV started. Two hours later, I walked, pushing my IV pole into the C-Section room. After the spinal block was in place, my husband sitting nervously beside me and my doctor gowned and gloved, we were ready. Being a high-risk pregnancy, the Neonatalogist, and an RN and Respiratory Therapist from the NICU were called in to take care of Patrick. The first thing I can recall hearing after the surgery began was my OB saying there was thick meconium (baby\'s first stool) present in the amniotic fluid. That means that at some point in late pregnancy, the baby was under physical duress. We would soon find out why. Meconium can be deadly for a newborn if they aspirate it into their lungs when they take their first breath. After clearing out Patrick\'s little breathing passages, my doctor began to bring Patrick\'s head out, only to discover the cord wrapped around his neck - 5 times. Finally, with the cord loops removed from his neck (a sixth loop was discovered around his shoulders), he was pulled free from my uterus and passed off to the NICU team for resuscitation. Upon examination of the very long umbilical cord, a true knot was found in it as well. Both my doctor and her nurse commented that it must have been all those prayers and Hail Mary\'s I had said that kept Patrick safe. He was easily resuscitated and we got to snap a few pictures of him before he was taken to the NICU for evaluation and observation. After all that, I was finally able to shut my eyes and sleep during the remainder of the surgery. I was so thankful that the neonatalogist determined Patrick was doing great and was brought out to be with me only 4 hours after his harrowing birth experience. It was the next day, with Patrick in my arms, when my doctor told me that in her 20 years of OB/GYN, she had never encountered a baby with cord wrapped around it\'s neck more than 4 times that was not a stillborn, let alone having a true knot in the cord. I know with all my heart that, along with Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary, it was the intercession of Blessed Gianna, along with Patrick\'s Guardian Angel, that kept him safe. In a few weeks, on the 24th of April, we\'ll be celebrating n Patrick\'s 6th birthday, and 4 days later, on April 28th, St Gianna\'s feast day. I\'ve come to find those two days seem to go hand in hand for our family. I love St Gianna and have found that she is a powerful intercessor! St Gianna Beretta Molla, pray for us!
RADIATION TREATMENT WHILE PREGNANT
Dear St. Gianna, Thank you so much for interceding for me and more importantly, for my baby marga. 2 months after my radiation treatment, i found out i was pregnant with my 2nd child. People receiving radiation treatment are advised not to get pregnant at least for 6 months following the treatment. Doctors say that no amount of radiation is good and that my baby will be at a high risk for physical deformities. That being said, i said a novena to st. gianna asking for the good health and normal development of my baby...and on the 18th of December 2007, i gave birth to a healthy and normal baby girl. Again, thank you st. gianna from the bottom of my heart.
SINUS INFECTION WHILE PREGNANT
Earlier this year I posted a prayer request that my husband and I might conceive another child. Last week I found out I am pregnant. I also developed a severe upper respiratory infection and was told I probably had a sinus infection. I prayed to Saint Gianna all weekend for her intercession with our Lord to save me from the possibility of an infection and potential round of antibiotics that could harm my child. I am thrilled to say that my symptoms are slowly subsiding and I did not need antibiotics. I express my deep thanks to St. Gianna for her help and example.
BABY MARY KELLY (MOLLY)
Dec.,2007 I presented you with a request for prayers for our granddaughter, Mary Kelly (Molly), born on Nov.28,2007 - a twin. Molly was taken to the NICU the night of her birth with respiratory problems. Within a few days, I gave her Father a picture of St.Gianna which had touched her relic. He prayed the prayer and touched the picture to her chest, then placed the picture on her crib. After 2 weeks, her parents had her transferred to a well known Childrens Hospital. Again the picture was placed on her crib. A Jewish doctor asked if that was a picture of a relative since she had pictures of Molly\'s older sisters and brother also on the crib. Our daughter explained to him who St. Gianna is. Within a week Molly was able to go home. The doctor\'s comment to our daughter, \"I can\'t explain her miraculous recovery.\" Our daughter answered, \"I can\", and pointed to the picture of St. Gianna. Before leaving the hospital, our daughter, gave the holy card of St. Gianna to a nurse to give to another Mother whose baby had been in the hospital for 3 mos. Thank you, St. Gianna,for being with us and interceding for little Molly. Molly came home on Dec. 21, 2007 to be with her twin sister, Anya Catherine, sisters Elizabeth and Gabrielle and brother, Brett. He celebrated his 4th birthday on Dec. 24, and all he wanted for his birthday was for Molly to be home with the family. Molly is growing well, along with her twin sister, and is a happy, healthy baby. Thank you, St. Gianna.
Thank you St Gianna, I am pregnant again. I am passing my devotion to you on to others. THANK YOU.
St. Gianna, can you believe I'm 30 weeks pregnant. So far my pregnancy has been great. No serious issues. I know that your intercession has a lot to do with that. Thank you for being my baby's guardian angel and for praying for us everyday. One day this baby will know all about you and the power of your intercession. Love--Kim and Baby Carroll
By: Kim and Baby Carroll
Blessed Gianna, this is a follow up to Note 94 listed above. I\'m back to thank you so much for interceding once again. My second surgery in December 2007 to remove additional breast lumps has also yielded benign results! I truly feel blessed to have had such a wonderful surgeon and amazing family, friends and the Light of the World prayer group praying for me. I could not get to the shrine prior to surgery but was given a second class relic card to place on my chest. I also felt warmth with the relic card and felt it again spontaneously during the time the Light of the World prayer community (based at Nativity of Our Lord parish) was praying for me one Wednesday night prior to my surgery. Thank you so much to all who prayed for me and special thanks to St. Gianna for interceding and blessing my family once again. I know you kept me safe, Gianna, thank you. Life is so good! I love you!
Dearest St. Gianna, I want to begin by thanking you from the bottom of my heart. I have prayed to you recently and you have answered ALL of my prayers. I prayed for the health of my unborn child when I was pregnant, I prayed for your assistance in labor and delivery and now I pray to you every night to bless my child. My son is now 4 months old and he is AMAZING! I wonder how one could love a person so much. It’s something that I have never experience before, but surely the best thing to EVER happen to me. My husband and I are both in LOVE with our little son. We THANK YOU full heartedly for all you have done for us. You answered our prayers and you assisted us when we were in need of you. I promise to make you know to all people in need. We love you and always will. Once again, thank you!
CONCEPTION AFTER VISITING SHRINE!
My son Joseph Michael is about to turn 1 year old. He is a child that was conceived after I visited St. Gianna shrine, prayed daily and touched the gloves to my abdomen. We had not luck for 11 months and the 12th month he was conceived. I have been praying and telling people about St. Gianna ever since.
A very happy & grateful mom
St Gianna, Thank you for being the example you were in your earthly life. Finding you and learning about you has given me strength and encouraged my vocation. Coming to this site to pray my novena is like sitting in a pew in church all alone, quiet, and reverent. St. Gianna please help me with my teaching. I know I need to improve, I am too sensitive and shy and rarely feel I have given my absolute best when class is over. Please help my lectures to be filled with encouragement for my expectant parents. Please help me to provide them with the best teaching and through you my teaching truly truly benefit them when they are in labor. Thank you St Gianna, I have chosen you and St Anthony of Padau as the patron saints for my little company. Please watch over it and please watch over my expectant parents, protect their unborn and see them through to a safe and joy filled birth. I ask for your help and your intersession. Thank you. Please St. Gianna and St Anthony pray for me and with me to God the Father of us all.Thanks be to God. Jesus I love you. Amen
Thank you for bringing peace to my family life. For helping Cristin, Please bring Jim and Cristin back to the sacraments....I am so grateful.
LIVER TRANSPLANT FOR BABY!
I sent an intention for a very ill baby that needed a liver / small intestine transplant. That baby received the transplant within a week of her own liver failing. She is doing as well as expected and her family is grateful. Thank you St. Gianna for hearing our prayers.
BREAST CANCER - COUNTRY OF ARGENTINA
I am writing fron Argentina. I learned of Saint Gianna one year ago when I went to Genoa, Italy.
Two weeks ago, the doctor found a small tumor in my wife's breast. I decided to pray to Saint Gianna as a mother, wife and doctor.
Today, the doctor carried out two studies on my wife and the tumor has disappeared.
Thank you Saint Gianna for your intersession.
PREGNANCY BY PROXY!
On the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe I've been celebrating a Mass of Hope and Healing for families that have lost a child through miscarriage, SIDS, abortion, accident, and for couples experiencing infertility.
During the Mass couples come forward to receive a blessing using a second class relic of St. Gianna Molla (thanks to Joe Cunningham).
This past Dec 12 a woman returned to give thanks; last year she came to the Mass and stood in proxy for her daughter who could not conceive. Nine months and one day after the blessing...her daughter gave birth to her first child and this woman's first grandchild.
The woman cried last year in desperation; she cried this year in profound thanksgiving.
Thank you, Saint Gianna, for helping this family!

PRAYER IN DISCOURAGEMENT
Thank you st gianna for your intercession, for your life as a mother and for your help, because each time I get discouraged and feel really not a good mother I think of you and it helps me to turn to Mary and to pray for my family and my weakness.
INFERTILITY - THEN TWINS!
My husband and I had struggled with infertility for years. We had one early miscarriage and decided to move on to adoption. Through a series of events in my life, St. Gianna came into my life. I prayed to her, prayed her novena and visited the shrine on several occasions. Imagine my surprise when my husband and I found out we were expecting twins! A double miracle and a double blessing! Thank you God and St. Gianna! I am currently 15 weeks pregnant and continue to pray to St. Gianna daily to watch over the babies and myself through this pregnancy. Thank you again St. Gianna for answered prayers!
SEPARATION, RETURN HOME!
I returned home after a separation...I would not have returned without her help.
St. Gianna, I wanted to thank you so much for interceding when I found a breast lump while nursing my 2 wk old son back in 2004. You watched over me and my doctors for 2 yrs so I could nurse him and made sure I was safe and he was, too. When I had surgery in 2006, I carried your card in my sock and knew you were with me and my surgeon. I prayed to you for complete benign results and you were there for me. I am facing the same surgery again in a few weeks with two newly found breast lumps and plan on visiting the shrine in the next few days. I know you will be with me and watching over me, my surgeon and my family during this time. As I read through the board and cry tears of joy over the many miracles you have performed, I can't thank you enough for being there for so many of us. You are our family's guardian angel. With so much love and gratitude, I thank you!
Thank you St. Gianna for interceding in our prayers! I have just found out we are expecting our first child July 2008!
St. Gianna, Thank you so much for your prayers and healing touch. Sandy's cancer is gone and I know your intercession had a lot to do with it. We are forever grateful to you and your miraculous ways. We'll be at the Shrine on Sunday giving you thanks!
2-YEAR OLD WITH CANCER
I was a month pregnant with my son when my 2-year old daughter, Katie, was diagnosed with cancer. The pregnancy did not start off well and combined with the stress of caring for Katie, my doctor told me to go on a modified bed rest or I could lose the baby. At the same time, Katie was not able to walk or even crawl due to the intense pain from the compression fractures in her spine caused by a combination of the leukemia and chemotherapy. I had to take Katie to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia 3 or 4 days each week for chemo and have her blood counts checked, along with giving her daily chemo at home. A member from the Blessed Gianna Society who heard about Katie, contacted me and asked if they could come to our home with some relics of Blessed Gianna. They came with a pair of her gloves and a priest’s robe that was made from pieces of her wedding dress. I was permitted to put on the gloves and immediately felt a warming sensation that started in my hands and went through my entire body. I placed one of my gloved hands on Katie’s back and the other on my belly and prayed. Katie began to crawl and eventually walk a couple of weeks later. She never had a fever or was hospitalized during the first year of treatment – which is highly unusual. Katie’s little brother, Kyle, was born a few weeks early, but at a healthy 10 pounds, 1 ounce! Our family believes through St. Gianna’s intercession, we have two miracles in Katie and Kyle!
St. Gianna, I want to begin by thanking you from the bottom of my heart! I prayed to you to help me with my pregnancy and with labor and delivery. I have to tell you, it was amazing. I went through the entire birthing process without felling anything. I received the epidural early during the delivery and it lasted the entire time. I felt NOTHING. I prayed to you and asked you to be there with me and to help me. You were truly there for me. The entire process from pregnancy to delivery was amazing. I thank You and Jesus for making everything complication free. I was scheduled for a c-section and I prayed to you to help me have a vaginal delivery and that’s exactly what you did for me. I’ll never forget what you’ve done for me. Thank You!
UNBORN BABY GROWS
St. Gianna, Thank you so much for your prayers for my unborn baby. At our appointment today we were able to hear the babies heartbeat for the first time. I also could not believe how big the baby grew in just 10 days. Everything looks good so I ask you to please continue to pray for my baby! Your intercession has truly been a blessing for us! We love you!
GIANNA ROSE'S OPEN HEART SURGERY
Thank you for giving me the strength to see my 5 yr old daughter Gianna Rose make it through open heart surgery on July 9th, 2007.
INFERTILITY / PREGNANCY
My husband and my immediate family have been praying to St. Gianna's to intercede with God to bless my husband and I with a healthy pregnancy. Well, imagine my surprise when last week I found out that we are indeed pregnant!! What a miracle!! I have suffered with infertility for years. Of course now we are still praying that this pregnancy will be a healthy and viable pregnancy. We have visited the Shrine on 4 different occasions. I plan on spreading my testimony and thought this was the perfect place to start as I also posted a prayer request on this website. Again, Thank you St. Gianna for our miracle and please continue to intercede for us that this is a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. Thank you!
UNBORN TWIN GIRLS HEALTHY
On 8-14-07, my friend and I made a pilgrimage to your beautiful shrine. At that time, I prayed in a special way for a set of unborn twin girls. These little girls are the children of my \"niece\'s\" dear friend. I am very happy to report that both filrs were born healthy and well four days later, on 8-18-07 (my birthday). Katherine Rose and Francesca Maria are both home now and doing well. Even though Francesca was smaller than her sister, she is trying hard to catch up, and doing very well. May their parents, Karen and Joe, always know how special these girls are. Thank you dear Jesus and St. Gianna for your intercession...
Thanks for your for Cleo, today she received a teaching job. Once again thanks St.Gianna for your continued prayers
ULTRASOUND OF UNBORN BABY
St. Gianna--Thank you so much for your prayers. Today we saw a yolk sac in our ultrasound!!!! Since both of our previous pregnancies ended in blighted ovum's, I've never seen anything in an ultrasound other than gestational sac! This is so emotional and exciting to my husband and I. I know you are praying for my unborn baby and I know that last week when I visited the shrine, you sent your special blessings to my baby through your gloves! We love you and believe in your miraculous works. Please continue to pray for us!
Thank you Saint Gianna for helping my sister in her time of need.
LOVE FOR HER FRIEND, SO THEY VISIT THE SHRINE
A few weeks ago, I somehow came upon this site, and spent several hours reading about Saint Gianna. I believe that I heard St. Gianna's voice urging me to bring my friend Anne Marie to visit the shrine. Anne Marie was widowed a little over a year ago. She and her husband were never able to have children, even though they would have been welcomed. Anne Marie is soon to be engaged to a wonderful man, Matt, who is also widowed (and not coincidentally was a friend of her late husband). He has expressed a strong desire to raise another family (Matt has 2 sons ages 20 and 22). Yesterday, 8-14-07, I made a pilgrimage with Anne Marie to your beautiful shrine. We both prayed for whatever is God\'s will in this matter. As she placed her hands on St. Gianna's gloves, I laid my hand over hers to pray. We were both filled with an incredible peace and joy. It was also not a coincidence, that 8-14-07 was not only the vigil of the Assumption of Mary, but the feast day of St. Maximllian Kolbe, who also gave his life so someone else might live. If God in His infinite wisdom see fit to bless Anne Marie and Matthew with children, whether through natural means or adoption, they will be brought to the St. Gianna shrine at the Nativity of Our Lord Church to say "Thank You, dear Jesus and St. Gianna". We look forward to coming again.
BABY MADELINE GIANNA
Thank you, Saint Gianna for the gift of our daughter, Madeline Gianna Miller, born on September 3, 2006. We are so blessed to have Madeline in our lives and we owe the experience of a healthy pregnancy and birth to you and your intercessions. We came to you when we were in complete despair and you answered our call in the most amazing way. We are truly blessed to have you as in inspiration. I hope that I can follow in your example of seflessness as I journey through motherhood with my little girl. THANK YOU!!!
VISION OF SAINT GIANNA!
I just delivered baby #5 on July 16. During my pregnancy, I had a vision of St.Gianna. (I was worried about delivery due to being a v-bac for the 4th time.) In the vision She told me that she would be with me during Labor and Delivery. She was there! My baby was born with the cord around her neck and a knot in the umbilical cord, it was only through St. Gianna's intercession that my baby was born without any complications during delivery or any other problems that can occur due to the cord being knotted or around the baby's neck. Thank you St. Gianna.
Thank you, St. Gianna for helping get a job. I happy that I am working now. It's a job that I love because I am helping others.
Prior to knowing the gender of our first child, my husband and I couldn't agree on any names. On the day that my husband and I found out we were having a girl, and to our surprise, the name Gianna came immediately to our minds. We quickly agreed that out daughter would be named Gianna. Soon after we me with the physicians to discuss the test results only to find out that I had a two-vessel cord. It is a "marker" and could have meant several things. While we were told not to worry, we did. While at home and trying to be optimistic, I did a search on the meaning of the name Gianna and learned about Saint Gianna. I knew from reading her story that we picked the perfect name and that Saint Gianna would watch over our little Gianna as she grew. In December 2005, we had a healthy baby girl and we certainly gave her the name Gianna. She has a beautiful spirit and at the young age of 1 1/2 has a love for God, Jesus, and the church. She knows to give her kisses, do the sign of the cross, bless herself and she can't wait until she is of the age to receive communion. We were truly blessed and we feel that Saint Gianna was watching over when for some we easily picked her name. Our daugher is lucky to have the name of a Saint that stands for the life of a child - a true miracle. Thanks you with all our heart. The proud and fortunate parents of little Gianna.
GAVE SON UP FOR ADOPTION
I became pregnant at age 19, and my own family pressured me to abort. I knew I could not raise a child, despite having a faithful, pro-life boyfriend to whom I am now actually engaged to. I had no support from anyone except him, and his family. The night before the schedualed abortion, I prayed to God, to send someone to intercede, to give me the stregnth to do what his will is. The next day I ran out of the clinic. I had found the courage and strengnth to do Gods will. On Janurary 10th, 2007 I gave birth to a baby boy. After many months of discussing options with my boyfriend, we decided adoption was the best thing we could do for our son. We found a wonderful Catholic family to raise him and give him everything I only wish I could have. After the day at the clinic, my mindset became "No one will ever touch my baby." I love my son with everything I have and it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, saying goodbye to him for the last time. But this was my calling, and I trust God. I put my pain, my hopes, my dreams, my life, into His hands, and I believe He sent St. Gianna to intercede. I will be baptized next Easter, and have chosen her as my Patron Saint. My life was turned around, and I am so greatful for that awakening.
SHE'S GOT A TICKET TO FLY! (sorry to the Beatles :))
Thank You to St. Gianna, I asked her to provide us with a way to visit her shrine...and I received tickets, to fly to the shrine for my Mothers day present from MY SON!!! It is really a miracle that we are going to be able to come from MICHIGAN to see the shrine in Philadelphia..THANK YOU ST. GIANNA

NO DOWNS SYNDROME for BABY GIANNA
I would like to thank St. Gianna for her intercession for my pregnant niece who had previously had an ultrasound that may have indicated Down's Syndrome. A recent ultrasound turned out to be normal. I had sent her a prayer card touched to St. Gianna's relic when her relics were brought to our church recently. My niece who never heard of St. Gianna had decided to name the baby Gianna, unbeknown to me. We know St. Gianna had something to do with that! Thank you, St. Gianna.

HEART SURGERY SUCCESSFUL
St Gianna answered my prayer. My mother underwent a risky heart procedure yesterday. The chance of success was not good. Miraculously, she did fine. Much thanks and gratitude to St Gianna for her intercession
VOCATION OF MARRIAGE
Thank you St. Gianna for all your support from my many prayers, especially those for my vocation. After a few years of discerning religious life (I was not called in this way) I am now engaged to be married 3/3/06.
My daughter Lourdes is a resident in Pediatrics. This is her last year (3rd.) and she has a lot of work, nights on call that she cannot sleep at all, etc. She became pregnant last February (first child) and I offer her pregnancy to St. Gianna. I pray a lot to her. At her 5th month she got cramps, but she could stay at home resting for 2 weeks and last Nov.16 she had a beautiful baby girl, Eva Beatriz, their first child,our first grand-daughter and she had a pretty good labor. I was all the time praying for the intersession of St. Gianna. My daughter worked until two days before she got in labor.

PHYSICIAN PRAYS TO ST GIANNA
I have always been a devout Catholic but I never felt that my prayers have had much meaning until I met St. Gianna. I think that it is when we are in our darkest hour that we truly give ourselves totally to God's mercy. I myself am a physician and I often pray for my patients. I felt all was lost after many years of trying to conceive a baby. A dear friend of mine told me of St. Gianna and that her relic was going to be at St. Mary's of the Assumption church. I did touch her glove and a feeling of warmth came over me. Later after the Mass, we were told that people who receive blessings often felt the same way. I did conceive a baby several months later. At 31 weeks, I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and was told I had to deliver the baby. My health was in jeopardy. I told my husband to go home and get my prayer to St. Gianna. I have been praying to her throughout my entire pregnancy and I trusted she wouldn't let anything happen to me. My son was delivered weighing only 2 lbs. 13 oz. He was very healthy and never needed oxygen or medications. Now at 1 years old, he is a 19lb very happy and healthy little boy. I continue to pray to St. Gianna everyday. It was also through her intercession that I passed my medical boards. I do consider St. Gianna my friend and guide. I never proceed through a surgical procedure until I prayed to her to guide my hands. Blessed be St. Gianna!
I found myself in need of a kidney transplant in 2004. My mother told me of Saint Gianna and rubbed a prayer card of hers on me and with in a week I had a transplant. Thank you, Saint Gianna for your help.

PEACE IN THE FAMILY
St giana, thank you for caring about Maxime, my stepson, caring about his Mother Brigitte and my husband christophe. thank you for your Mother's heart and your help. thank you for today and this event I take in my heart as a grace to have found a book about you in the bookshop just after my husband could talk with his first wife about Maxime on the phone, that is something to me. thank you St Gianna, thank you.
PREGNANT WITH MORNING SICKNESS
My dear friend Saint Gianna, thank you so much for your loving intercession to our Lord Jesus during my last pregnancy. I discovered I was pregnant with our third child in November of 2005. I had always gotten bad morning sickness when pregnant, but this time bad turned into horrifying. I could not keep anything down. I vomited everyting I ate and drank. Even water made me sick. I quickly lost twenty pounds during my second trimester. I was dehydrated as well, and needed many IV infusions. I often spent the day in my bathroom, vomiting for hours on end, until all that came out was bile and blood. I was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). Saint Gianna had been a cherished friend of mine since she was still a Blessed. I "met" her during my pilgrimage to World Youth Day in 2002, of which she was a patron. I knew this lovely saint had also suffered from HG. Each day, when I dragged myself to the bathroom, I brought my postcard from World Youth Day with the image of Saint Gianna. I would pray for her intercession and her strength. There was a day I thought constantly about abortion; Satan was tempting me severely. I cried out for it all to end. I looked at the picture of Saint Gianna and begged for her help; God felt so far away but Gianna understood what it was to suffer for a baby. When I asked for her help, I remembered Christ in the Garden, begging for the cup to pass from Him -- "nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done." The temptation to abort was instantly taken from me and Jesus suddenly felt close again. My darling daughter, Naomi Elizabeth Pearl, was born on Aug. 2, 2006. Saint Gianna helped me every step of the way. The baby's "secret" name will always be Gianna Gethsemane. Bless you, Saint Gianna. Thank you, loving Father, for providing saints like Gianna as role models of holiness for the rest of us.
After 3 miscarriages in a row, and alot of prayers to St Gianna, I now have a 9 month old baby girl who we chose to name after her and her daughter, Gianna Emanuela! We are so very blessed and we thank St Gianna for interceding for us & our new baby daughter, Gianna!
Thank you St. Gianna for helping my surgery and recovery go without a hitch. I know you were with me throughout the entire procedure. Thank you also for taking care of my niece, Maddie, during delivery. There could have been serious complications but I know you were with her doctors that day. I also want to thank you for helping baby Collin beat the odds of survival. He is now doing so well. I know it had something to do with your prayer card inside of his incubator! Thank you for being my guardian angel and answering my prayers and helping the people I love.
2% CHANCE OF VIABLE PREGNANCY
I give so much thanks to God and to St. Gianna! Last week I was given the prognosis of my second miscarriage, and went through all the emotional issues of facing the loss of my pregnancy and preparing for my D&C. My doctor had wanted to verify that the pregnancy was no longer viable, and had ordered blood tests and one final ultrasound. On Tuesday, Oct 24th, I gathered up my courage to walk through the doors to the hospital where I prepared to see an ultrasound without a baby. I grabbed my St Gianna charm and prayed with all my might. 30 minutes later, I received a small miracle when a heartbeat was found on the ultrasound. I had been given a 2% chance of having a viable pregnancy, and now I was seeing a hearbeat, where before no baby could be found. While I know I still have a long way to go with the pregnancy, I feel I have been given a second chance and my faith has been renewed. Thank you!
I prayed to St. Gianna for several individuals whom were all very ill. Three of the individiuals had a miraculous recovery and are doing well (two years later). I thank you for listening and appealling to my prayers. Please continue to my interventation. God Bless You!!
BIOPSY RESULTS WHILE PREGNANT
Thank you for your prayers to help calm me while waiting for biopsy results while pregnant. Thankfully both my unborn child and I are healthy.
Saint Gianna was canonized the day after my first born daughter's funeral. A good friend of my mother sent us a copy of a novena for then blessed Gianna and her story. Our family began praying to Gianna then. I had a very complicated first pregnancy and in addition to losing my daughter, I nearly lost my own life. I was told I had a 60-80% chance of a reoccurence in a following pregnancy. My husband and I so desparately wanted a child and decided we were willing to try again. But in the long months following our daughter's death we had trouble conceiving. It had been almost a year when one Sunday there was a blurb about the shrine to Saint Gianna in our church bulletin. We decided to visit the shrine. Saint Gianna's gloves were placed on my stomach and I kept the card I was given that day close to me at all times. Within 2 months I was pregnant. I prayed to Saint Gianna regularly and kept that card close to me always, especially at all of my medical appointments when I feared getting devastating news. In the end I was able to carry my second daughter to 36 weeks and despite a major complication at delivery she survived and is now a very healthy, happy, and energetic 11-month old. I still pray to Saint Gianna and am so very grateful to her for watching over us. There is no greater gift than the gift of life.
Thank you Saint Gianna for the healthy and safe labor and delivery of Kym and her daughter Charolotte, and of Samantha and her daughter Elizabeth.
After over a 17 months of infertility treatment with guidance for Archbishop Burke of St. Louis we turned to St. Gianna for intercession. We are now pregnant with our 1st child who is due at the end of April, near the feast day of St. Gianna.
"GIANNA" SIGN ON TRUCK!
About a year ago, my wife and I, unfortunately suffered a miscarriage. As devastating as it was, we kept our faith strong and put everything into Our Lord's hands. On my way into work each morning, while saying my prayers, I would always ask Our Lord, through the intercession of St. Gianna, to bless my wife and I with a child. One day, while driving to work, I saw a truck in the other lane as it passed. It had written on it, in huge gold letters, "GIANNA". I knew that St. Gianna was hearing my prayers and within a couple of weeks, my wife and I received the greatest news ever; we were expecting. Thus far my wife is doing wonderful in her pregnancy and my devotion to St. Giaana is always present. God Bless!
PREGNANT AT AGE 38 AND AGE 41
After having tried unsuccessfully for two years to become pregnant. I prayed to several Saints including Blessed Gianna (since it was in 2001) and in October, 2001 my first pregnancy was confirmed at 38 years of age. I enjoyed a wonderful pregnancy and was blessed with a little boy in June, 2002. We wanted a sibling for our first child so again we began praying to the Saints including Saint Gianna and I become pregnant in August, 2004 at the age of 41. Our second blessing, another boy, arrived in May, 2005. Thank you Saint Gianna for our two most precious gifts in the world.
Dear St. Gianna; I prayed to you a few months ago and sent in a petition for a young man and his girlfriend to make the right decision. They have chosen to keep the baby that was conceived. She will have the baby in Nov. Thank You St. Gianna for all the favours and help that you give to everyone.
Thank you for interceding with conceiving my second baby. After 1 year of trying I visited the shrine, placed the gloves on my tummy and got pregnant that month. I could never thank you enough for this blessing Saint Gianna. I love you!!!
PRAYERS TO SAINT GIANNA
Dear saint Gianna, I am praying daily to you and want to thank you for your blessings. I know you helped answer my prayers, it could not be a coincidence the way things are turning out. I will keep on praying to you for ever. Thank you, thank you.
Thanking St.Gianna for answering many prayers for well being of first grandchild to be born in January 2007. After abnormal test results in blood work, sonogram was very positive. Will continue to send prayers to Heaven until the little one comes, and then begin to forever to thank St. Gianna for her intersession. Praise God.

Thank you, St. Gianna for the safe delivery of a perfect baby girl for Colleen and Bob. Caden Amelia was born on Aug. 30, weighing 8 lbs. 3 oz., despite the doctors predictions of a premature birth and possible birth defects...she is, thank God, PEFECT!
St Gianna, Thank You for relieving my mom from her cancers (liver & pancratic). I found out I was pregnant 1 day after Mom died. She never knew I was worried, but maybe she did. I promised that if it was a girl I would name her after you. I prayed at the shrine for my Mom & called her right after to tell her what to do w/the prayer card. I feel you gave my daughter, Gianna Teresa, to me to help in dealing w/ the passing of my Mom. A true gift of Love, Thank You St Gianna (&MOM)
Thank you, St. Gianna, for curing my husband of cancer; today he his healthy and active afterr only having a 5-15% chance of survival-
My sister-in-law, who is unable to have children, prayed to St. Gianna while touching her relics, and a week later, she was contacted by a pro-life organization that had a woman who wanted to give her baby up for adoption. My sister-in-law said yes, and ended up being with the birth mom at the hospital and has been with the baby every moment since. She plans to name her after St. Gianna.
When I was 21, I was diagnosed w/ Graves Disease. I was engaged to be married, and physicians had told me that I probably would not be able to concieve a child. During this time of struggle I prayed a lot for healing. One day they brought the gloves of St. Gianna to my church... I prayed so hard and asked for her intercession, that I vowed that if God blessed me to have a child and it would be a girl that i would name her after St. Gianna. I am now 27 years old and 8 1/2 months pregnant expecting my first child and she is a girl. Conceived naturally through God\'s Blessing and with lots of prayer. I wanted to thank whomever it was that brought her gloves to my church of St. Lukes Catholic Church, Palm Harbor, Florida. Because with her help and her prayers I have been truly blessed.
KIDNEY STONES AND PREGNANCY
I was pregnant with my fourth child in 2005. I have had problems with kidney stones during pregnancy and a friend of mine (her fourth child is named Gianna)gave me a relic of St. Gianna. I learned more about her life and prayed to her throughout the pregnancy. Then on October 3, 2005, I went into labor (after many episodes of kidney stones and even a surgery while I was pregnant - during all of which I prayed to St. Gianna) I always had her relic with me. All day had passed and finally at night I had an epidural. Shortly after that the nurse checked to see how far dilated I was. When she checked she found the baby was facing the wrong way. She seemed very frantic and quickly started to make calls to the doctors and prepare for a C-section. My husband and I were nervous. So we prayed to St. Gianna and held onto the relic. At that moment I felt a big movement with the baby. When my doctor arrived and checked she said the baby was just fine and in the correct position. We gave birth to our fourth healthy son, Nikolas Joseph early in the morning of October 4, St. Gianna's birthday! Praise be to God!
Thank you note :- Thank you, St. Gianna, for interceding for me to help me become pregnant!
PREGNANT AND WITH CANCER
St. Gianna, I thank and bless you for intercession and protection of our 4th child, Grace Gianna. During my pregnancy, Grace and I went through a 7-hr. surgery and 6 rounds of chemotherapy for the cancer I was fighting to get rid of and the child I was fighting to keep. Our God is so good! Thank you! Thank you!
PREGNANT AND WITH CANCER
St. Gianna was brought to my attention by my sister-in-law. Hestitant to bring me her story, she did it anyway. Thanks be to God! I was diagnosed with Stage IIe non-hodgkins\' lymphoma AND papillary thryoid cancer on June 9, 2004. On 6/15/04 I found out I was pregnant with our 4th child. Obviously, terminating my child was not an option. So, I had to wait to have surgery until my baby could make it through also. In August, during a 7 hour surgery, I had my spleen removed (where the tumor was) and my entire thyroid. I would promptly start chemotherapy 3 weeks later, 7 days after my 37th birthday. I would put off a portion of my treatment b/c it was not known how it would affect our baby. During each round of chemotherapy, I could just feel St. Gianna there filtering all the toxic drugs away from my beautiful child. Three weeks after my last treatment, on January 25, 2005, Grace Gianna was born into this world at 7 lbs. 6 oz. and perfectly healthy! I finished up 4 more treatments for the lymphoma and 2 more for the thyroid cancer that I couldn\'t do while pregnant and I have been in remission for 1 1/2 years! Praise our Good God!! Grace Gianna has also enjoyed great health! Also, before my surgery, my husband and I were invited by our Archbishop, Raymond Burke, to his home so he could pray with us. He has a relic of St. Gianna\'s wedding dress! We were able to venerate the relic and on our journey we continued with the comfort that we had St. Gianna interceding for us! This month (May 2006)Archbishop Burke has announced a new parish in our archdiocese. It is named....St. Gianna!
Thank you, Saint Gianna, for allowing the tests and doctors to confirm my husband's remission from stage 3 esophageal cancer, and for continuing to keep him, to this day, cancer free.
Thank you, St. Gianna, for interceding for me to help me become pregnant!
I underwent a hysterectomy on 5/16/06 for uterine cancer. I said many special prayers to St. Gianna for a successful outcome. I had not known she was canonized on this date 2 yrs ago until I came to this website. I know that St. Gianna interceded for me and my prayer request. I am now completely free from cancer and will forever give prayers of thanks to St. Gianna.
I just sent my petition yesterday, already I had a phone call from the labor board yesterday, today another phone call, my check from my ex-boss will be here by saturday or he will have to pay large fines. I also got phone calls for interviews for next week. Thank you Gianna!
Thank you St. Gianna. I felt your blessed presence as I made my Confirmation last Sunday. I am proud to bear your name as my Confirmation name.
St. Gianna, thank you for your intersession on the reconciliation of our son and daughter-in-law. The dinner with them was unexpected and wonderful. Please continue the intercessions on behalf of her medical condition.

PHYSICIAN CONCEIVES -- after 7 YEARS!!!
Thank you Saint Gianna. One year ago today I first learned of your beauitful life as I watched a documentary on TV. Today that same documentary aired again and I was reminded of how much you interceded for me. I too am a physician and a mother and I knew that you could help me. My husband and I had been unable to conceive for 7 years after our first child was born. I asked your intercession and that of Our Blessed Mother Mary, and Saint Michael the Archangel and to our delight Benjamin Thomas was conceived within 1 month of my prayers. We welcomed him to our home on February 23, 2006. Thank you!!!
St. Gianna has interceded for me on many occasions. But most recently, I prayed that an NFP only OB-GYN would come to my area. My prayer has been answered! Thank you again, St. Gianna for your intercession.
UMBILICAL CORD AROUND NECK
Thank you Gianna for the birth of our daughter, which happened yesterday with three turns umbilical cord around to the neck. Isabel Ester is in perfect conditions of health and she has been born with just a little medical participation.

When I was 34 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child my doctor told me the baby was breach. He would not attempt to turn the baby as my first child was born by cesarean section and there was a risk of rupturing the old incision. I called upon all our family and friends to pray for us, and St. Gianna was one of the Saints that my rosary group and I prayed intently to for intercession. Just before my 37 week appointment with my doctor I could not shake the feeling that even though my doctor had made it clear he would not attempt to turn the baby, I needed to ask him again. Though he again voiced firm objections, to my surprise he agreed to meet us at the hospital and do another scan to see if the version might be possible. The very next day, despite my doctor\'s reservations, despite my previous c-section, despite how late in the pregnancy, despite the size of the baby (one week later was 8 lbs 4 oz), my doctor easily turned my son by placing his hands on my belly and applying gentle pressure. I believe in my heart that our Lord heard the intersessions of St. Gianna and Mary our Holy Mother and saved my family from the struggle of another cesarean birth. My gratitude cannot be expressed. God Bless.

I asked for your prayers for Saint Gianna's intercession and I prayed to Saint Gianna that gynecological problems that may have prevented me from becoming a mother, be cleared up. Thankfully, these issues have been resolved! Thank-you
By: April 6, 2006
Through the past year, after losing a baby boy named Joseph, we have been praying to do God's will for having another child. We felt the Lord was putting it on our hearts, so it was his will. After months of prayer and discerning his will, we were disappointed when we weren't getting pregnant. We have 6 children who had been praying very hard for another child.
I knew St. Gianna's relics were coming to our church and was doing a novena to St. Gianna and St. Joseph (since we lost Joseph). When St. Gianna's relics came to our church, they prayed over me and placed the gloves on my stomach. The next day, which was the feast of St. Joseph, we found out that we were pregnant. Needless to say my children were very excited, as well as, my husband and I.
Thank you St. Gianna for the safe and healthy birth of our daughter, Gianna Rose, on February 20, 2006. In 2003 Gianna\'s older brother, Derek, was born to eternal life the day after his earthly birth. Following Derek\'s passing, we were told by our infertility doctor that a subsequent pregnancy was unlikely. However, after touching St. Gianna\'s relics and praying for her intercession, I became pregnant without requiring an ovarian cyst aspiration as had been previously done in attempts to conceive Derek. Ultimately, our prayers were answered with the safe and healthy arrival of our baby daughter. Thank you St. Gianna for your intercession and for God\'s living miracles!
My sister did not need a hysterectomy. She had minimal surgery to have a cyst removed. Thank you for your prayers.
thank you st gianna for your intercession, for your life as a mother and for your help, because each time I get discouraged and feel really not a good mother I think of you and it helps me to turn to Mary and to pray for my family and my weakness.
LEUKEMIA in REMISSION
Thank you St. Gianna for the healing of my dear friend, Debbie, who had leukemia. After holding your glove, she has gone into remission. I was so happy to be with Debbie, and Jack/Amy Weber when we prayed together. Our God is an awesome God!
I have received many miracles in my life and in the life of mine family for intercession of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla and I cannot leave to thank and to divulge everything of good that I have received.My meeting with Christ was the greater and stronger miracle received from Gianna Saint that promised in one week a miracle to me in my life. Others have if succeeded with frequency after this first miracle and I only have to be thankful,its presence in our life and our home if has become very strong and transformed our lives. My love for it, for Jesus and Maria of Nazareh it has increased to each day more. I ask for to all the people who truily believe to be Gianna Saint a kind saint, miraculous, amiable and heard for God, that one is interested of truth for us in the Land.

FAILING and PASSING EXAMS
I wish to thank St Gianna. When pregnant w/ my 5th pregnancy (for my 4th child), my cousin Mary Therese suggested we pray to St Gianna...which we did. Just for a safe pregnancy for us both. I was 40. Well, every single time a test came back "failed", I'd pray for her intercession...we'd retake the test and I would pass FINE. The baby and mother are fine and baby is almost 1 year old (3/11/05). Thank you, St Gianna...for being "my other doctor" in my pregnancy. :-)

DISAPPEARANCE OF DIFFICULTIES
Thank you Saint Gianna for presenting my prayers to the Blessed Lord and for granting my request. I begged for the little baby I nannied for to be healed of the many infirmities he was suffering. Doctors did not know why he was suffering from intestinal and digestive difficulties but within days of my prayers my mother gave word to me while I was in Italy that Mitchell was perfectly fine. I know that you are the cause of his good health, and I thank you.

9 BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS
I gave birth on 4-4-04 to our 9th child. I was 44. She was 4lbs 5 ounces.2 months early.I also had 3 miscarriages before this birth.My baby was gravely ill in utero. She had 9 blood transfusions while she was inside of me. She had 6 more after her premature birth.I prayed to Blessed Gianna Molla throughout our ordeal.I wanted to name my little girl Gianna Joy but my husband and other children wanted her name to be Sophia.Sophia survived!.She has had numerous problems and is hearing impaired.She is a delight to everyone! God is so good and Gianna Molla became a saint before Sophia left the hospital. She was in intensive care for 5 weeks. Sadly we lost another child on 1-15-05.(preborn) but praise God, we have a little Gianna Lucia Marie waiting for us in heaven. Thankyou St. Gianna Molla for your constant help during my difficult time with Sophia Joy.Please hug all of my babies who are in heaven for me ~Martin, Mary Theresa, Liam Michael and Gianna Lucia Marie. Also my grandchildren ~ Magella Marie and Gabriel Nicholas ( a twin)Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!!! Bonnie
