His grandfather's eyesight was restored after a visit to Mother Cabrini's relics
Mr. Guzmán posted the photo on social media to ask if any of his relatives knew anything about the little booklet. Someone did!
“Your grandfather was blind,” someone wrote him, “And sometime after your mother was born he made a trip from the Dominican Republic to New York specifically to visit Mother Cabrini’s relics and ask for her intercession. On the way home on the airplane he regained his sight.”
Mr. Guzmán never met either his grandfather, Basilio Yanguela, or his grandmother, who died giving birth to Mr. Guzmán’s mother. But he had vivid memories of a statue of St. Frances Cabrini that always stood at his step-grandmother’s bedside.
