Overview

God doesn't need humans to work miracles for Him, but as veteran Catholic author Patricia Treece shows, it certainly seems His good pleasure to perform great miracles by means of human prayers and human hands.

For more than a quarter century, Treece — America's most experienced and revered saint-watcher — has gathered numerous fascinating reports of miraculous healings brought about in our lifetime.

Among them is the complete 2005 cure of Sr. Marie Simon-Pierre's advanced Parkinson's disease after she appealed for healing to the just-deceased Pope John Paul II. After intense scrutiny, the Vatican declared her healing miraculous, leading to John Paul's beatification and canonization.

Here, too, are tales of scores of lesser-known healings brought to light by Treece's own investigations into little-known official Vatican documents, as well as from her many interviews with living witnesses of miraculous healings, including several whose healings have been accepted by the Vatican as grounds for the canonization of their intercessors.

You'll read vivid but sober accounts of the lives and of the miracles wrought by some of the greatest 19th and 20th century saints of all, with details of a host of authenticated healings by André Bessette, John Bosco, Frances Cabrini, Solanus Casey, John Paul II, Padre Pio, Elizabeth Seton, Francis Xavier Seelos, Fulton Sheen, Mother Teresa, and other good men and women blessed by God.

The healings documented here are not hasty judgments made by gullible, overwrought believers; they're instantaneous, complete, and permanent cures for which scientific medicine still has no explanations — cures that also meet the Vatican's stringent seven-part test of authenticity.

When faced with a woman skeptical about whether she could be cured, the healer Solanus Casey is reported to have said, “Don't you know that God can cure cancer just as easily as the common cold?”

Not only can God do this: These pages show that He is doing it … so often and so obviously that even in our day miraculous healings are giving pause to hardened skeptics and bringing joy to the hearts of believers who rightly see in them overwhelming evidence of God's love for each of us. May they bring joy to your heart as well and renew the confidence in His love that God yearns for you to have!

Fr. Benedict Groeschel

    It is exciting to know that in my own children's time new saints

    It is exciting to know that in my own children's time new saints are being recognized. Patricia Treece tells us how the church researches each new candidate's life--and she does it in an easy to read style. Cures may be immediate or gradual; all are called miracles by medical men and women. Their stories are down-to-earth; we can imagine ourselves knowing these people as the author tells us about them. This book is delightful on several levels. Five stars are hardly enough to rate it.

    In her sweet style and rich descriptive phrasing, Patricia Treec

    In her sweet style and rich descriptive phrasing, Patricia Treece writes as though she lived through every scene. She brings holy people into our midst when before we could only imagine what that would be like. Treece has an intuitive way of making every character in the book relatable to readers. Through these informative and beloved stories about "saints," it is possible to imagine that any one of us could be the next saint-in-the-making! I like the info about the process of sainthood which gave structure and credibility to the anecdotes, and insight to the results of so many hardships turned into healings. "Nothing short of a miracle" is nothing short of amazing!

    Patricia Treece's book "Nothing Short of a Miracle" is an inspiration to all who desire a closer walk with God. In the telling of the many miracles God works through His saints it gives us hope that we are all important to Him and He is there to help. Miss Treece writes in an easy flowing manner that all can easily understand. She also researches all her work meticulously. I look forward to her next book.

    Patricia Treece has given us a book that is a must read in this

    Patricia Treece has given us a book that is a must read in this age of skepticism. In the time of Christ his miracles underscored his divinity and brought the crowds to him to listen to his words.
    No less in our day do miracles provide the same effect. In this book you will find scores and scores of healings defying medical explanation. Patricia's painstaking research is a boon for the skeptical mind as she provided the evidence and gives the backstory to each event.
    In addition her biographies of each saint, venerable or blessed give us a vibrant picture of their lives and work on earth, and thanks to the miracles, their continuing work from heaven. We also get a glimpse into the process of a declaration of sainthood and the rigors that a person's life is subjected to before such a declaration is made.
    My husband picked it up before I could crack the book open and was just as enthralled as I was, so we were often racing to see who would get it first.
