‘Out of gratitude to God and Fr. Venance for recovery of health and for cause, I describe the course of my illness, which is as follows.
Beginning in August 1923, I suffered from pains in the stomach area. Since the illness developed further, I went to Dr. Markiewicz for advice, who after examination judged that it was a peptic ulcer and announced that the illness was severe: you need to lie a few weeks in bed, eating nothing, except for a little milk. After following the diet, I called on the doctor again. He said it was a little better and even allowed me to eat light dishes. That’s how I survived for a few weeks. But despite following the regulations and the use of medicines by the referred physician, the pains persisted, but they became more and more difficult to bear, especially after eating food and even after drinking milk.
I went to the doctor again, and this time he himself was disturbed, giving me a new prescription, he said:
-If that doesn’t help, we must take other measures.
I suppose he meant surgery.
The same day in the evening I was in the church of the Franciscans, where I heard the conversation of one of the friars that Fr. Venance, who died two years ago, had already performed several miracles. At the same time, the thought came to me that I too could be healed on account of Fr. Venance. So, I decided not to buy the medicine, but to recommend it to him.
The next day after receiving the Lord Jesus, yesterdays though returned to me. I began to pray earnestly, asking the Lord Jesus to heal me through the intercession of Father Venance.
That same day I didn’t feel any more pain but wanting to make sure I started eating all the foods which were strictly forbidden by the doctor, even meat.
Two months have already passed, and I feel completely healthy. For which may God and Fr. Venance be thanked.
So that what I write is more reliable, I present as a witness to Sr. Superior of the Tertiaries Natalia Frankowska, who was present at the examination of the doctor and followed the entire course of my illness.’
