Back in 2014 at the age of 19 I came down with severe tendinitis in both my elbows. I was a high-level pianist and had pushed myself too hard. Normally tendinitis clears up within 6 months, but in my case, it turned chronic and I suffered from it for 4 long years. It impacted every aspect of my daily life, from my ability to shower and dress myself, to all of my other regular activities.
For a time, it forced a complete stop to every single thing I enjoyed doing: horseback riding, art, piano and writing. During this time, my parents and I discovered the Flame of Love movement, and began to incorporate the spirituality into our daily lives, including reading the Diary, praying the Flame of Love Rosary, keeping a family holy hour on Thursdays, and trying to keep the three days of fasting to the best of our ability.
In 2018, I felt inspired in prayer to ask my parents to pray over me for healing of my tendinitis, specifically invoking the Flame of Love. We aren't the sort of family that usually does this sort of thing, but the Holy Spirit must have been moving because both my parents agreed, and my dad pulled together a healing prayer to make use of. I didn't feel anything dramatic but from that day onward I stopped using the special arm braces I'd been making use of and while it took a little time for my muscles to recover, the tendinitis has never bothered me again since that day!
I will add an additional testimony to this one, in that my parents asked for a complete healing of my body, not just my tendinitis.
I had been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder at the age of 16 and had battled this mental disease for years, with limited success treating it with prescription medications. I was hospitalized for it multiple times and was never completely stable or healthy.
A couple months after my parents prayed over me, my family was introduced to a special micronutrient supplement formulated to treat serious mental illnesses. I was able to switch from my prescription meds to that supplement, and within a period of about 6 months, I was entirely symptom free and back to normal. I have remained completely symptom free ever since.
It's been 5 years now and I consider myself cured of Bipolar because of this supplement.
I have no doubt God led us to this in order to cure me, through the intercession of our Blessed Mama and the Flame of Love.
Thank you very much Catherine for your beautiful testimony, we are very grateful that you can open your heart to all those who really need it.
