A miraculous escape for a little Aussie girl blessed by Pope Benedict

When Pope Benedict was in Sydney, Australia he kissed and blessed little Claire:

This week Claire was rolled over by a 22-seater bus:

The tyre marks were yesterday visible on her tiny abdomen, but she astounded her parents and medical specialists by surviving the ordeal without internal injuries, broken bones or lasting physical damage of any kind.

As Claire lay in bed at Sydney Children’s Hospital with a Catholic prayer book, red-eyed but smiling and talkative, she said it was her dad and God that saved her.

    What is one, esp a Protestant one, to say, except that it gives a quiet evidence of a miracle? All I wonder is which good Blessed is meant to stand for the deed, and there are more than a few.
    Good Pope Benedict did know to pick this one sweet one, and it now shows.
    I admit I see John Paul II looking down and smiling, musing “Ah, friend Joseph, your blessing counts more than you’d think.”

    This is an amazing miracle, though the whole story is even more amazing what the news paper doesn’t say is that she was hurt by the bus. The article says “she astounded her parents and medical specialists by surviving the ordeal without internal injuries, broken bones or lasting physical damage of any kind.” But when she was in Nowra hospital her leg was put in a cast because it was badly broken and doctors said her spleen was torn. When she was checked out the next day they found nothing more than bruises and scratches, which made them take the cast off her leg. Her leg was healed. (it had been a bad break) Thank God she is healed!!

    My friend Barbara died of cancer yesterday. She was not responding to treatment and was told she had only a month or so to live. I prayed to God for an out-and-out miracle. I’m reminded of what my mother said: “God answers all prayers, but sometimes the answer is no. Barbara, who loved her eight grandchildren, I’m sure is looking down from heaven and appreciating the love and faith of Claire and her family.

    The mother had just put the Miraculous Medal of the Blessed Virgin Mary on her little girl one hour before the accident!
