I just wanted to share something really amazing that happened to my family 3 years ago that has to do with Abu Seifein since his commemoration was a couple days ago.
In Nov, 2007 two days before my 18th birthday my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and she was put on the top of the list to have a mastectomy because the doctors were really concerned about her case. We were terrified that it had spread to her lymphs because the tumor was big and it had actually deformed her breast... and my mom had ignored it for a long time (I DO NOT know why.. I didn't know about it). She had her surgery in December around the time of Abu Seifein's commemoration so we were all asking him to intercede for her. The day of the surgery my tita and I stayed home and we decided to listen to some spiritual tapes to give us comfort... well Abu Seifein kept coming up everywhere every tape/cd/movie we randomly picked out of our collection was of him, it was as if he was telling us he was with my mom. Then my aunt went to pray at Abu S. church before her surgery, Abouna was coming out and the only oil he had in his pocket was Abu Seifein's! Then someone gave us the sleeve that we put the bodies of the saints in that belonged to.. guess who? Abu S. So he was with my mom the whole time and he made sure of it! I have to thank him every year for interceding for us. Also, another Abouna happened to be at the hospital giving someone communion so right before my mom went in Abouna let her kiss the Body or he put it in her mouth, I can't remember exactly.
Her cancer didn't spread even though it was a possibility since the doctors were worried. My mom is done treatment and everything now and she's doing great thank God. Just wanted to share a personal miracle. Anyone else have stories?
God is so good!
