Highlights

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - A relic of Saint Padre Pio has been credited with a dramatic improvement in the condition of a critically ill baby.

Three-month old Caitlin Dooley was on life support in an Irish hospital, struggling to survive. She was born on May 12 and has been close to death ever since. Caitlin has a heart condition which has so far threatened her survival.


She spent 25 days on life support and an emotional rush baptism was performed.

As the family waited for a transplant, they placed a relic of Padre Pio on her bed. With little hope for a transplant, the only recourse the family had was life support and faith.

As a desperate measure, the family placed a relic of Padre Pio on her bed.


Almost immediately, Caitlin's health dramatically improved. Her heart function increased and doctors were able to remove her ventilator. The amazed doctors could not explain the sudden, rapid recovery. They told her parents, Kieran and Sandra, "something clicked," and could offer no medical explanation.

Now Caitlin is off life support and is technically normal.

The nature of the relic has not been shared, however it was described as an "original" relic.

Padre Pio is an Italian saint who was known for his stigmata, which he carried most of his life. The holes in his hands were perfect circles, and not made by any known means. He struggled with poor health, but lived a long, productive life. His body lies in the church of Santa Maria della Grazie in Italy.

Pope John Paul II canonized Padre Pio in 2002.

This latest example is one more proof the saints are real and they remain active in our lives. Who needs fictional superheroes when we have the saints?

On a daily basis, the saints intercede for us, delivering our most sincere gratitude and prayers to God, advocating our petitions before His chair. Countless lives are saved, and most importantly, souls are blessed. How many souls spring from Purgatory to become saints themselves as the saints work tirelessly on their behalf?

Baby Caitlin is all the poof we need. Give thanks! The saints are real and active in our lives!
