Decree on Miracle Attributed to Ġorġ Preca Promulgated

VATICAN CITY - The Congregation for the Causes of Saints promulgated today the decree on a miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Ġorġ Preca, priest and founder of the Society of the Christian Doctrine (M.U.S.E.U.M.) It received the approval of Pope Benedict XVI last 14 February.

   The miracle occurred around two months after his beatification during Pope John Paul II's visit to Malta in May 2001. The case involved an infant who developed liver complications mere days after birth. The child was examined at St. Luke’s Hospital in Malta and eventually transferred to London’s King College Hospital, for further treatment.

   On 14 July, doctors decided that the child would only survive if given a liver transplant. Although a date for the transplant was established, it was later discovered that the donor was not a compatible match. At this point the child’s family turned to God through prayer, with the intercession of Blessed Ġorġ Preca. A glove used during the exhumation of the priest a few months earlier was also placed upon the infant’s body. On 20 July, the child’s liver started to function normally and within another four days doctors decided that the baby no longer required a liver transplant. Today the child is a healthy five-year-old.
