Healing miracle declared in Colorado Springs

The sudden healing of a 4-year-old Colorado Springs boy in 1999 after two nuns prayed for the founding Mother of their order to intercede has been ruled a miracle by the Vatican.

The sisters of Mount St. Francis learned recently that Mother Maria Theresia Bonzel, foundress of the order, would be beatified because of the miracle.

Bonzel founded the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration in 1863 in Olpe, Germany. She died in 1905, at age 74.

“It’s really just overwhelming,” said Jan Burgie, who had asked two sisters at Mount St. Francis in northwest Colorado Springs to pray for her son. “We were doubly blessed, with the healing and a lifelong friendship.”
