The case of Owen is being investigated as a possible miracle toward the canonization of Blessed Giacomo Alberione, founder of the Society of Saint Paul.

There may be two miracles here: Owen's, and that of a well-done, thoughtful news story about him.

Here's a taste, but read the whole thing:

Owen was born with brain injuries so severe that the family was advised to take him to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, one of the nation's top neonatal hospitals.
After an MRI showed significant damage to several portions of the brain, doctors there felt they could do little for Owen. They released him on hospice status -- which means he was expected to die within days or weeks -- to his parents on March 13.
"We were very sad and uncertain but ready to accept whatever came," Danyo says.
Owen's grandmother, Rae Stabosz of Newark, is a believer in Alberione. She asked people to pray to Alberione to ask God to heal Owen.
Within two weeks, Owen was nursing vigorously, crying when hungry and breathing well. Today, his parents say, he is a normal boy with only a tiny delay in his speech development.
"He's doing so well, it's easy to forget how bad off he was," Danyo says.


More about Owen at his grandmother's blog, here.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service.
