  • I have met Father Ralph DiOrio in person and he is truly a healer! Does anyone happen to know how I can buy a copy of this episode?

    Father Ralph DiOrio is still here and still has his healing gift. This show aired in 1997, over 13 years ago and there have been so many healings before and after this with Father Ralph DiOrio who healed Leo Perraus several decades ago at St. John's in Worcester, Massachusetts. Leo was a man who was in a wheelchair for 20 years. Got up and walked for the rest of his life.

    I have not seen this episode, but would love to see it! Father Ralph DiOrio is truly a healer. I have witnessed many healings at his healing Masses. He is authentic and true, a good soul, and truly has the gift of healing. I highly recommend going to his website and to a healing Mass if you can! People come from all over the world. http://www.fatherdiorio.org/

    I also just found this on youtube

  • One story in this episode involved the miraculous healing of Christina Umowski by Rev. Ralph Di'Orio.

    I am reviewing this episode, today, 13 years after it first aired, and it still brings tears to my eyes. This is the true story of the healing of my own daughter. My husband and I lived this story, from the time Christina was first diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis with an unoperable brain tumor at the age of 3-1/2, the years of MRI's and not-very-hopeful prognoses, with the tumor increasing in size, until the time we met Fr. Di'Orio and he laid his hands on our 6-1/2 year old little girl. An immediate change came over her. From a sickly little girl, she became strong and vibrant. And, in one week, when we had pre-scheduled her 7th follow-up MRI, her brain tumor was gone! Her Neurologist and Neuro-Ophthalmologist had no explanation. They said this type of tumor has never disappeared; no such mention has ever appeared in the JAMA. And now she is 25 years old (in a few days) and the tumor is still gone! Thank God! And thank you, Fr. Di'Orio. Fr. Di'Orio works out of Worcester, MA and holds many public healings, for those who might be interested.moreless
