I never cease to be amazed at how frequently newswriters or TV reporters so
often donít get it right. Iíve noticed this all my life in various ways. And it is
true again (all too often) with Little Audrey Santo of Worcester, MA.
For the sake of time and space, I refer you to a previous article I wrote
about Little Audrey titled I SAW OUR LADY WEEP. But for brief background purposes, I shall
reiterate that at the age of three, Audrey fell into the family swimming pool and nearly
drowned. She was revived and brought to the hospital where a Doctor overdosed the child with
Phenobarbital, putting her into a coma.
So many news reporters state (and thereby purporting misinformation) that
Audrey (now 14 years old) is still in a coma. That is NOT CORRECT. Audrey came out of
the coma induced by the Doctorís mishandling. She came out of the coma a long time ago. Itís
just that the overdose did leave Audrey in an AKINETIC-MUTISM state. That means, Audrey
cannot move herself (akinetic) and she cannot speak (mutism).
I want to do my part in setting the record straight because recently Tom
Brokaw on his nightly news program referred to Audrey as being in a coma. W-R-O-N-G!
Audrey is very aware of what is happening around her. She hears what is said and responds in ways
that she can. Please be assured that if you hear from any news station or paper that Audrey
is in a coma, that that information is incorrect.
The media has also given the impression that nothing supernatural is
happening at Audreyís house. W-R-O-N-G A-G-A-I-N! The local Bishop, Daniel P. Reilly,
did NOT say that. Though the Bishop has not given the matter his local approbation (YET),
neither has he condemned it. This is very important to note. Actually, the Chancery Office
of Worcester is cooperating with the family regarding the unusual happenings in the Santo
home. The Diocese does not consider the events to be a CLOSED issue. In truth, the Bishop
wishes to take the matters into a second level. I have checked these matters out personally and
know them to be true.
To site only a few miraculous happenings in the Santo home, there have been
four Eucharistic Miracles in Audreyís house. All have bled real human blood not
matching the blood type of anyone in the family. Many pictures and statues are exuding oil, some
of them are bleeding real blood. Many thousands of people have seen these things with
their own eyes, myself included -- many times.
We live in an age of RATIONALIZATION. If something cannot be reasoned to,
it probably isnít true (so the world says). Well, the space between human ears
cannot contain the power of God. Manís mind is but a pin speck in the mighty universe of Godís
power and might. God can do anything He wants to and no man (or woman) can put God in a box and
say what He could or could not do. The faithless media canít handle that.
All mystical matters take time for Church examinations. But as one who has
seen with her own eyes, I can assure you that God is doing powerful things with a young
girl who has surrendered herself totally to God.
I shall write more about Audrey next week.
God bless you!
