    The Feel of a Heal

    I wonder the feeling of healing after the pain you've been suffering for almost half of your life. I wonder the feeling of seeing again after 10 years of blindness, or getting up again and walk like no paralysis happened.

    For the people in the pictures, it is a great relief; a good feeling; a miracle. And these are the reactions of the people after attending a 'Healing Mass' conducted by a popular priest (Fr. Fernando Suarez) who, according to many reports, has healed hundreds, if not thousands of sick people.

    I don't actually believe in faith healing but what happened last December 30 totally shocked me.

    To be in particular, while this catholic mass is happening a particular sick man fainted. According to the first aid respondents, he's about to die. He's already pale, his body already dropped, and his eyes are about to close. But after Fr. Suarez saw him, he immediately went to him. Touched his head, held his hands and asked him to stand. And so the man did. He walked like nothing happened. The people clapped and cried.

    Another story is a teenager, who had been suffering from a spinal pain for weeks. Fr. Suarez touched her back and stretched her arms. And there she was, crying in joy (as seen in a picture) then walks away to go home.

    There are many other similar stories happened in the course of the three hour mass. The paralyzed walked, the people with poor vision now can clearly see, people with internal organ ailments felt like their young and healthy again – the people just jumped in joy. I don't endorse faith healing, the priest or the religion, but this event really awed me.

    So is this a good stuff? I think it is more than. People with disabilities were given new ways to continue their journeys this 2014.
