The man who experienced the second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa has shared his story with the world.
The canonization process for Mother Teresa was accelerated by the Vatican.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Marcilio Haddad Andrino was the dying man who experienced a miracle attributed to the intercession of soon-to-be-saint Mother Teresa.
"I'm sure it was Mother Teresa who healed me," he told reporters.
Andrino was sick for two years before it was discovered he had eight brain abscesses. Andrino and his wife asked for the intercession of Mother Teresa. They placed a relic of her on his head and prayed together. At the time, he did not even believe miracles were possible.
On December 9, 2008, Andrino woke up with a headache. His doctors recommended emergency surgery.
He was rushed to an intensive care unit. But when he was wheeled into the operating room, a miracle occurred. Andrino told doctors he felt an overwhelming sense of peace. The headache went away. The doctors decided to wait until the next day for the surgery.
A scan the next day revealed he was cured. His abscesses were receding and the fluid in his brain was going away. Within three days he was totally cured and did not even show scars on his brain from the abscesses.
The sudden cure cannot be explained by any means except a miracle.
It was this second miracle which allowed the Vatican to recognize Mother Teresa as a saint.
Marcilio Andrino and his wife, Fernanda, pray each day for the continued intercession of Mother Teresa. They teach their children about the woman who is to become a saint.
Marcilio believes in miracles now, as do many others who have witnessed this merciful act of God.
Mother Teresa will be canonized on September 4.
