The amazing story contained here is related by Dr. Alexis Carrel (1873-1944), a winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1912 for his advances in surgical technique repairing ruptured blood vessels. In 1902, the brilliant agnostic Carrel was present at Lourdes (the need for physicians there being acute) and attended a young woman named Marie-Louise Bailly, who was dying of tubercular peritonitis. Carrel kept constant, meticulous notes of her condition on her way to the grotto at Lourdes, during her ablution with the water from the grotto, and afterwards. What occurred was an almost immediate reversal of a certainly mortal condition, a reversal for which Carrel could find no scientific explanation. He did not immediately resume the practice of the Catholic faith he abandoned as a student; that came much later. But the fact of the miracle was undeniably, starkly present in the detached, clinical notes he had kept. Fr. Jaki's introduction provides an indispensably informative framework for understanding Dr. Carrel's narrative. 95 pp.
