"I did not know anything about St. Sharbel," says the American woman. When her daughter bought a cup of coffee before her mother's visit to the hospital, the barista told her to ask for St. Sharbel's intercession to heal her mother from the deadly disease. Her daughter took her picture and placed it on St. Sharbel's relics, which were touring the United States and prayed.
On September 11, 2015, the doctor operating on her saw a bright light coming out of the image of St. Sharbel she had placed on her bed.
"St. Sharbel was with me while I was very sick. I know he was with me in the hospital. The light came out of his image, which was opposite my bed, and I realized that he was interceding for Jesus Christ for me. " Darlene says.
