2. Melissa Villalobos, a married full-time mother of seven children who lives in the Chicago suburbs, was miraculously cured in the pregnancy of her fifth child through the intercession of John Henry Newman, which was the second confirmed miracle leading up to Newman’s canonization. She will be speaking at our Newman Center on Mon, Nov 18th, so check out the event details here: facebook.com/events/2865320503548200/
