1863: Stone-Deaf regained hearing

The Oratory community was all set to welcome Don Bosco on his return from holidays with his boys. Arriving at the railway station in Turin around noon, he made a detour to visit a stone-deaf lady whom he had blessed two weeks earlier. He had then given her the blessing of Mary, Help of Christians and by gestures had promised her a complete cure by the time of his return. Things turned out exactly as he had predicted. Grate-fully, the good lady paid two weeks’ wages for the excavation of the new church. (BM VII, 325)
