Healing of religious would be first miracle attributed to Our Lady of Lourdes for a Latin American

Feb 14, 2008 / 01:29 pm (CNA).- The inexplicable cure of a Colombian religious—whose identity remains a secret—would be the first miracle attributed to the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and officially recognized in Latin America.

Up to now, there are no Latin American or Spanish cases among the 67 people whose cures have been recognized as a miracle of Lourdes by the Catholic Church.

According to chaplain Teotimo Gonzalez, coordinator of Spanish-speaking pilgrims in Lourdes, a Spanish woman and a Colombian nun are among those who have begun the process of having their cures recognized as miraculous during this year’s  150th anniversary celebrations.

The cases are examined by a committee of doctors who determine whether or not there is a scientific explanation for the cures.
