By: Kathleen E. Quasey
"We all have weaknesses that affect our body, mind, and spirit. But it is our will to overcome them that decides how we live.´With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible´ (Mt 19:26)" - Father Peter Mary Rookey, O.S.M.
The ´healing priest´, Father Peter Mary Rookey, O.S.M, received Christ´s Gift of Healing in 1948. Since then, thousands of healings have been reported worldwide. Witness letters, some with medical consensus, have been submitted to the International Compassion Ministry. When asked about the healings, Father Rookey simply says, "I just do what He told us to do and the people are delivered and healed. We are answering the last command of Jesus,´ . . . They shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover´ (Mk 16:18).
For the first time, in his own words, Father Rookey explains his life´s journey that has been guided by his constant "Yes" to God. With gentle humor and keen intelligence, Father Rookey provides practical direction of how deepening trust in God´s Laws and Love leads to the healing of serious hurts and the overcoming of life´s most difficult challenges. In the process, Father Rookey says, "Our souls begin to recognize that we belong to Him and He is Love. Ultimately, filled with His Love, we can give the gift of ourselves to Christ and His Love will come forth through us."
