I am happy to announce that Carmelite Review has published my short article about the closing of the diocesan process in Valencia, Spain in May 2013 that examined the healing of the little Carmen, a "presumed miracle" attributed to the intercession of Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin. Carmen was born on October 15, 2008, so she will celebrate her fifth birthday next Tuesday. To my knowledge, Carmelite Review is the first print publication to feature a story in English about Carmen's cure. Please read
