An answered prayer:

December 10, 2012

Every Christmas I believe in a Christmas miracle. You are mine this year. Yesterday I noticed that one of my six cats was sick. He was having problems going to the bathroom and then started to vomit. I’m a nurse practi­tioner so I know this to be a serious condition in people and figured it to be just as bad for cats. My regular vet was off so I took him to a neigh­boring vet for treatment which made me a little nervous and him very scared. He was diagnosed with a severe case of consti­pation and needed immediate treatment and intra­venous hydration requiring an overnight stay in the hospital.
I was so upset to say the least. I am a very religious person and I started to pray to God to look over my Chester. Then I thought....there must be a special saint that I could pray to . My internet search took me to your website and that’s where I found St. Gertrude of Nivelles along with your beautiful art and jewelry. I prayed to St. Gertrude and within an hour the vet called and said Chester tolerated the procedure well, was doing fine and I could pick him up in the morning. That’s when I went back to your website and ordered the poster of St. Gertrude. I have one empty wall in my family room that has been waiting for something special to hang there. St. Gertrude it is!
Wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed Christmas! May the angels always be at your side.
