Name: Jennifer English
Message: Fr.Ciszek baptized my brother in 1980.
I am 40 years old now, but I remember when I was 13 going to the Bronx where Fr.lived and him making my family dinner. He was so cute and he would say we will have a little salad,see... a little bread,see.
I have a hand written note from him graciously declining an invitation to my First Holy Communion. I also have the book With God In Russia with his personal autograph.
There was a distinct scent I recall as a child when around Fr.
About a year ago my husband had a bad knee injury and there was talk of him having to be out of work. I was very upset and while saying my prayers cried out to Fr.Ciszek to help everything be well and all of a sudden that smell of him was all around me and lasted only a few moments. I knew right away that was the scent I remember when seeing Fr. Needless to say everything worked out great!
I continue to pray to him on a daily basis.
