Favors of Sister Marie

by Louis Guido
Devotees of Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey are excited about the rash of reported favors attributed to her intercession; from physical and emotional healings to employment and real estate matters.

Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey, D. C., a religious of the Daughters of Charity, while serving in a French naval hospital in Turkey, was instrumental in the discovery, acquisition and restoration of “Mary’s House” at Ephesus. This house at Ephesus is the purported former residence of Our Blessed Mother and St. John, the Evangelist during the last years of Our Lady’s life. The ruins of the House of Mary at Ephesus (now Izmir), Turkey, were located in 1890. Sr. Marie purchased the property in 1892 and developed the site, now known as Meryem Ana Evi, the house of Mother Mary. She promoted the devotion to Mary at the site from 1892 until her death in 1915. It now appears that God must have something important in mind for Sr. Marie for this time in our history. Since the events on 9/11/01, the world has gotten more and more violent. Perhaps, after almost a century, Sr. Marie’s mission is being revived and expanded. Evidence, some of which is listed below, seems to affirm this premise.

Over the past several years, extraordinary events have occurred which relate to an increase of devotion to Sr. Marie. Many of these events have been reported and documented and include these representative healings:

-A woman suffering from a facial tumor, after applying a prayer card and praying to Sr. Marie for a week, experienced a complete healing; the tumor disappeared. Her doctor stated that this type of tumor could only be removed through surgery. In addition, the prayer card turned color, from black and white to green, the color of healing. Subsequent discussions with the now-healed woman revealed the interesting fact that her mother is a Catholic and her father, a Muslim. This first recorded healing through the intercession of Sr. Marie involving a Muslim connection may portend Sr. Marie’s role in future Christian-Muslim relations.

-A gentleman was suffering from both prostate cancer and facial cancer. After having been given a prayer card and praying to Sr. Marie, both the prostate and facial cancer disappeared.

-A young girl was suffering from an irregular heartbeat. Her mother was given a prayer card which was placed under the girl’s bed sheet. Every night, for a short time, both mother and daughter prayed from another prayer card. The daughter told her mother that a “heartbeat” was coming from under the sheet. The following week, at a visit to a cardiologist, there was no evidence of the irregularity. There are medical records to document this occurrence.

Many other documented “favors” have been tabulated by a foundation on Long Island promoting the cause of Sr. Marie:
