"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks, finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
Prayer is an essential tool for healing and is an excellent source of comfort, courage and strength for those who are suffering. During times of illness, disease or a life challenge, nothing is more important than to offer prayer and to join with others in assurance of these prayers.
In addition to prayer, the Saints protect us against harm, help strengthen our faith and offer spiritual guidance and healing. They are our models of prayer and their intercession helps present powerful prayers of healing to God on our behalf.

On April 27, 1954, Josemaría suffered a near fatal anaphylactic shock. He inexplicably survived the incident and after having suffered with diabetes for over 10 years, Josemaría was miraculously cured of the disease.
He died June 26, 1975, of natural causes and was canonized on October 6, 2002.
Saint Josemaría Escrivá is recognized today as the patron of those who suffer with diabetes. His feast day is June 26th.
