A second novena to Servant of God, Father Augustine Tolton will be said for a miraculous cure of Matt Cameron. The novena will go from July 1st to 9th, and culminate in a mini-pilgrimage to follow in “Father Gus'” footsteps.
July 9th is the 120th Anniversary of Tolton’s death. He passed away of heat stroke in Chicago at the age of only 43.
If you would like to meet me near Hannibal, Missouri on the afternoon of July 7th or 8th for the pilgrimage, please email me at email@example.com. I can give you a mini tour of the places Father Tolton lived and worked in Missouri and across the river in Illinois, where I will visit his grave. We can pray along the way for Matt’s miracle!
There is an outside chance Matt himself will be joining me if he is feeling well enough to travel!
You can find out more about Matt and his battle with Stage IV Non-Smokers Lung Cancer, by going to this blog home.
Matt has decided to entrust his miracle to Father Gus, who also needs to have a miracle attributed to him in order for his Sainthood to be declared by the Catholic Church. Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, who is the postulator for Tolton’s canonization cause in Rome, joined us during our first novena. The bishop also visited Matt recently at the hospital to bless him and pray to Father Gus together.
