.- The Catholic magazine “Cristo Hoy” in Argentina has published an article on a mother who entrusted her daughter to the intercession of Our Lady of Lujan once she was diagnosed with an incurable disease before she was born. The little girl, Lujan, is now three years-old and living a normal life.

Marcela is an eye doctor and mother of three.  During the eighth month of her last pregnancy, doctors found her baby to be suffering from anencephaly, a condition in which the brain does not develop normally.  Marcela was told her child would die within days of being born.

“When I was being taken into the delivery room, I prayed to the Virgin of Lujan and decided to name my daughter after her and place her into her hands.  The Virgin of Lujan appeared in my mind and my heart during those difficult moments and I fervently prayed for my child to her.  Thanks to her, I have my daughter with me today and she is just like any other girl her age, smiling and loving those whom she meets.  According to the doctors she has a deficient nervous system, but she is nonetheless a normal girl,” Marcela said.

Little Lujan’s case continues to be inexplicable to the doctors who treated her.  “They cannot explain the extraordinary improvement of our daughter. Today she is a normal girl except for hemiparesis on her left side,” her mother said.

She said her daughter’s illness has made her family appreciate life more.  “I thank God every day of my life for the miracle He did with my daughter,” she said.

“When faced with the blunt reality of a developing baby with problems, everything around comes crashing down, hope fades, negative thoughts take hold, because of how fragile these little people seem to be.  But you need to pray for a lot of strength, have hope and through prayer try to overcome this difficult moment,” Marcela stated.

“My message to everybody is that miracles do exist and that God is always with us,” she added. “I can testify to this because I experienced it.  I hope that by telling my story I can help others with their faith,” she said.
