I have a favor to ask you.

Normally, when Matt or I write a post at the National Catholic Register, we put up the first few paragraphs and a link. If it catches your interest, you click over.

This time I am not gonna do that.

Matthew has written a post at the Register that is, in my estimation, just wonderful. Matt has personally interviewed everyone involved (except the dead monk, of course) and has crafted something beautiful.

It is the inspiring true and miraculous story of a boy who was never supposed to walk again and how prayer, the love of a mother, and love of a complete stranger, inspired a miracle.

So please, go and read “The Rebuilding Year–A Miraculous True Story.”

And if you like it as much as I do, spread it around.
