Ignatius

Location: poland OH USA

By: Theresa Smaroff

I had often heard, that whenever you are in between being asleep and awake- if you ask your angel their name, they'll tell you. The name I got- was Ignatius.
Perhaps, my husband thought I was crazy. My husband is a surgeon and believes much of medicine is based on science. Ignatius was about to prove him wrong. When science ends, that is sometimes where faith begins.

And I believed Ignatius.

My husband came home late one night. He said that there was a patient bleeding in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit and he was worried he might die. So I told him- "I'll send Ignatius to him to help him."

Within 15 minutes, the patient's bleeding stopped. Eventually, he had made a full recovery. Many times, I send Ignatius out to the sick. He never ceases to amaze me. And because I send him to the sick patients, he keeps my husband home at night . My husband- who now believes in angels.
