Sisters, I want you to know that the young girl I asked you to pray for went to Boston to meet with the surgeon before her operation three weeks from now. After running tests the doctor said that Emily does not need surgery! She said she shows no evidence of the medical condition that has plagued her since her childhood. She IS HEALED through God’s grace and mercy and I am convinced through the intercession of your foundress. All praise and honor and glory to God. He is kind and mercy.

My name is Judy E. and I am writing this letter to you about what I believe is a miracle from God through the intercession of Venerable Mother Alphonse Marie.
A few years ago, a friend of mine began attending Sunday Masses at the Motherhouse Chapel, in Elizabeth, PA., and told me how nice it was there. I also attended a couple of Masses there, and when on vacation from work, I spent a few days there on a personal Retreat twice, and loved it! I lived in Pittsburgh, PA, about 30 miles from the Motherhouse. I had my house up for sale for about 3 years, and this past December, finally sold the house. I no longer wanted to live in Pittsburgh, but in the rural areas nearby. I didn't have hardly any savings, and needed a place to stay until I could get a good job, hopefully get a mortgage loan and buy a house in a rural area. I asked Sr. Alojziana, the Superior, if I could stay in a room at the Motherhouse until I could get a job, a loan, and a new house. She generously and graciously permitted me to do so.
I thought that with my 23 ears of cashier experience, I would have no trouble finding a new job in the area. I was very wrong. About a week after moving, I began putting in job applications, and Praying hard to find a good job, enough to get a decent mortgage loan. As the weeks went by, and no places called me to work, I began to feel very worried and discouraged, and Prayed harder. I continued to apply for any job I could, and probably put in about 40 applications in all. There was one specific good job that I was hoping for most of all, out of all the places I applied at. The weeks turned into months and I still did not get a job. I started to panic because I have heard stories about people not finding a job for years. I knew that I could not over-stay my welcome at the Motherhouse, and my only other option was to buy a mobile home and live in a trailer park for the rest of my life. I really do not want to do that for various reasons.
On February 27th, Sr. Alojziana told me that she would have the Sisters make a 9-day Novena for the intercession of Venerable Mother Alphonse Marie and I said that I would as well. She said that the Sisters would start the Novena the next day, but I started mine that evening. On day 7 (for me, day 6 for the Sisters), I got a job at at local grocery store. It was only part- time and only minimum wage, which is not enough to live on, and not enough to get any loans. I told God and the Sisters that I didn't want to seem ungrateful, but making $100 a week is not enough. I started the minimum wage job and finished the Novena to Mother Alphonse.
As soon as I finished the Novena, I began a second one the next day. About 5 days into the second Novena, I scheduled an interview with the place that I mentioned before, that was
the job I was hoping for most of all. On day 9 of that second Novena, at the interview, I GOT THAT JOB!!!!! I will be having a Mass said here at the Motherhouse Chapel in Thanksgiving.
I believe that this is a miracle because I Prayed for 3 months for a good job, and actually Prayed for a long time before I even sold the house to find a job as soon as the house would sell. But I did not get any job at all until we all said the Novena for Mother Alphonse Marie's intercession.
I hope and Pray that this will be accepted as a miracle to further the cause for the canonization of Mother Alphonse Marie Eppinger.
Yours in Christ, Respectfully,
Judy A. E.
Last year (2016) I asked Mother Alphonse Marie to help us to raise money at our Tears of His Love Group Craft Show. We were able to buy 4,500 cans of food for the poor.
This year (2017) I asked her for help in getting a job, but nobody wanted someone in a wheelchair. Walmart called me for a second interview. I got good job!
