EUCHARISTIC DELIVERANCE : THE HEALING EUCHARIST
Fr. Tardif also gave the testimony of a man who was brought forward on a stretcher during a Mass, as he was testifying to his own personal healing. This man’s backbone was broken, and he became, as a result, lame for five and a half years. They prayed for him and pleaded with the Lord specifically to heal him through the power of His holy wounds. According to Fr. Tardif, the sick man began to sweat heavily and to shiver. The priest knew exactly what that meant and spoke authoritatively: “The Lord is about to heal; stand up in the name of Jesus.” He gave him his hand and encouraged him to get up and walk. The man did but slowly. The man of God spoke again: “In the name of Jesus, go further, the Lord is present to heal you.” And the Lord made him whole once again. Such is the power of the Lord in the Eucharist.
