Fr. Robert Pecotte, one of our regular Sunday homilists, emailed me from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, where he is spending time with a 7-year-old girl who has inoperable brain stem cancer.
He related to me this brief but profound exchange: “When I asked [her] what she thought Holy Communion tasted like, she smiled and said ‘Love.’”
He continued, “Never in my life have I heard such an answer.”
She will receive the Sacraments of Confession, Confirmation, and Holy Communion today. Fr. Pecotte asks, “Please pray that God also send her the gift of miraculous healing today!”
