Healed Through a Rosary Novena

by Maryann Boaden – Toledo, Ohio

For 17 years I suffered from a type of migraine headache. It seemed that every year the pain would last longer and intensify. I saw many doctors who tried many techniques but to no avail. Medicine did not help.

A friend told me to ask our Blessed Mother for relief during times of pain. One night I woke up with a severe headache. Since I could not sleep, I went downstairs into the living room sat on the couch, took out my rosary and asked our Blessed Mother to please help me.

When the rosary was done, the headache was gone. I went back to bed and while I was lying there, I smelled the scent of roses. This was when I knew Mary came through for me that night.

However, I still continued to have headaches at least once each month. The headaches traveled from one side of my head then the other and lasted from two to three days.
On Christmas 1986 I had a terrific headache. The next day I decided to do a rosary novena. I asked Mother Mary if she would ask Jesus to heal me of my migraines. I promised that if she did and that if they went away, I would tell everyone I could about how she helped me.

I have not had a migraine headache since Christmas 1986. I said a rosary of petition for seven days, without realizing that a novena was for nine days. Before I even knew that the headaches were gone, I immediately followed the first novena with a rosary of thanksgiving for seven days. I still thank Mary, and, at every opportunity I have, I tell everyone how she helped me.
