Miracle Attributed to G. K. Chesterton
A Carthage, N.Y., woman has reported the first miracle attributed to G. K. Chesterton.
Rosa Reebeeds says that she was cured of vision loss by praying to the writer and apologist for aid.
"I fell asleep on the couch and when I woke up I could barely see," Reebeeds said. "When I fell asleep I could see fine."
Reebeeds said she called to her husband for help, but he didn't respond. It was at that point that she turned to Chesterton.
"I asked him to heal my eyes so I could see like before," she said.
A few moments later her vision was restored.
"It was like the lights suddenly popped back on," Reebeeds said. "I was blind, and now I see.
"It was a miracle."
Reebeeds' husband, Sam, said the problem was a tripped circuit breaker caused by a short in a lamp. He said he just unplugged the lamp, and reset the circuit.
Rosa Reebeeds said her husband was not a man of deep faith. She also said that he was not a handiman, so it is hard to believe he would know what to do for an electrical problem.
"If he did fix a circuit, that would have been another miracle," Rosa Reebeeds said. "Thank you G. K. Chesterton."
