Miracle at Medjugorje: Man claims he’s cured of ALS

Claims of a cure of ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) symptoms is reported as a “miracle” from Medjugorje. Doubtful? You BET it is.

World’s first cure from deadly ALS takes place in Medjugorje | MEDJUGORJE TODAY.

Cristian Felice suffered from ALS which leads to sure death. But while in Medjugorje on September 26, he heard a voice tell him to climb Apparition Hill where he broke into tears. His respirator put away with his feeding tube next, he appears as world´s first to recover from ALS.

Cristian Felice, the patient with ALS “miracle” to Medjugorje | Daily Blitz.[Translated]

Together with his wife and two priests faced the climb, and suddenly got up and went to the big statue that marks the exact spot where Our Lady appeared to the visionaries. When he reached the goal, the two priests and his wife saw him cry. Now his condition suddenly improved. Walking alone, no longer needs a respirator at night, and in a few weeks will also remove the tube that helped him to feed. The medical protocols require further examination, but according to what has been learned already talking about the health improvement of its condition of health.

This is only being reported by local papers in Italian and by the Medjugorje Today news site that does nothing but try to bring people to the location with similar “miraculous” stories of healing. We hear nothing from doctors. If this is a truly medical miracle, Felice’s doctors will have records of his condition before and can assess his condition now and publish a case study on his recovery. Until then, this should be considered extremely dubious.

    There are real and documented cases with interviews with doctors. Of course, there is always going to be false claims and it should never replace medical treatment like some insane people do!

      I have yet to hear of “miracle” as a valid cure published in a medical journal.

    My wife was dating a Catholic (we are both recovering Catholics) before we started dating. He told her about his pilgrimage to this place. He said he witnessed “many miracles”. She asked “Like what?” “Oh there were too many.” “What was the best one?”

    He showed her his rosary. “See the chain? It used to be gold. It turned to silver.”

    “You got ripped off.”

    Has any part of this story been verified?

      It’s hard for me to tell with the translations from Italian. While the Medjugorje News delivers a steady stream of such stories, this was one making media rounds since it’s a bigger claim than most.

    I’m even more cynical. Does Mr. Felice exist outside of the imagination of the writer of the original story? That’s not skepticism that’s full-blown, eye-squinting, “who you trying to kid?” disbelief.
    The Catholic Church’s stance is hands-off. It’s not an official site like Lourdes, so a claim is unlikely to investigated. idoubtit’s last pargraph about medical evidence is just about how the church handles these things. Prior medical record, cure/remission without a physical cause, full medical exams to confirm a real cure.

    I find this really offensive because it doesn’t offer anything useful for people that have been suffering from ALS for years. You don’t think that families haven’t prayed in every way imaginable for their loved ones to get better, or at least live a few more years?

    Proof is required, otherwise, I’m calling BS.

    This is BS and a pure insult to the people around the world suffering from ALS…
