Rebroadcast of the long-running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour," a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org

This week’s broadcast is the dramatic story of Andy Ahearn, a young husband and father who is injured in an accident and told he would be crippled for the rest of his life. After years of struggling to survive with his disability, Andy learns of a shrine dedicated to St. Anne de Beaupre, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the many cases of people who were healed after praying to St. Anne.

Andy scrapes together the money needed for the trip and journeys from his home in Massachusetts to the shrine in Quebec. At the foot of St. Anne’s statue, Andy prays for a miracle and promises that if he is cured, he will organize annual pilgrimages to the site so that others can bring their prayers of intercession to the grandmother of Jesus.
