In August of 2007 my son and daughter-in-law became the parents of triplets—three healthy boys. The previous February, the doctor strongly urged the ecstatic nervous parents to abort one. Possibly she could carry two. Because of her rather delicate health—at times severe asthma, migraines and frequent seizures, he reasoned thusly. He also warned that economically the medical bills would cause a serious financial strain. He painted a very bleak picture. They promptly found another doctor, supportive and excellent. He would do his best… 

        And so we began to pray very hard to Father Joseph… A friend of ours asked countless people to pray to him. We are convinced that it was through Father Joseph’s intercession that the mother went so far, and that the babies were very healthy. After the successful birth, the doctor confided to the parents that he was absolutely amazed that the mother had gone as long as she did in her pregnancy—thirty-four weeks.  He said he had no hope she could go beyond twenty-two weeks, creating great risk for the babies’ health/survival! We are all so grateful to Father Joseph’s intercession!!
