A Testimony by Fr. James F. Murphy, C.S.C.
One of my greatest joys has been my spiritual
sharing with Maria for more than fifteen years. Her unique personal walk with the three divine persons, Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit, witnessed to me God's presence with us and His personal love and concern for us all. God chooses to dispense His gifts
to us by individuals, e.g., Padre Pio, St. Therese, etc. in doing so, God shows us our need and His desire that we relate
as members of one family. bound together by personal love for one another.
The Second Vatican Council emphasizes this
when it states many times that we are saved, not only as individuals, but as a family. Through Maria's gift of healing, God
healed my back which for many years laid me low twice a year. God has touched me and continues to touch me through Maria.
I am eternally grateful to God and love and cherish Maria. I hope that this book may help you also to realize God's love and
concern for you.

To Whom It
God uses Maria Rocha in extraordinary ways because of her simple, but strong faith. Over the years, this
faith has been refined in the fire of many personal trials and tragedies. Unquestionably, Maria has known the Cross of our
Lord. But her suffering has not led her to despair. It has led her to a deeper experience of the power of our Lords Resurrection.
Through her personal testimony and her prayers of faith, the Risen Jesus has touched many hearts and healed many wounded souls
and broken bodies. May Maria continue to live in faith and walk in love, so that many others will come to experience Gods
healing peace through her.
