John McCain, The Miraculous Medal, and Mother Teresa!

I found this story on and thought it was excellent! Here is just part of the story:

Eduardo Verastegui said, ‘Senator, thank you for your commitment to life. I’d like to give you something.’ I gave him a Miraculous Medal blessed by Pope Benedict XVI and he was amazing. He said, ‘Thank you so much! Look what I have here in my pocket.’

Then Sen. McCain took a medal out of his pocket that he carries everywhere and it was a Blessed Mother Teresa medal. He said, ‘Eduardo, now I am going to keep both.’

Verastegui also gave McCain’s wife, Cindy, a Miraculous Medal. He said, “I was touched when I found out that the McCains adopted one of their daughters from Mother Teresa’s orphanage in India. There is nothing more beautiful than to give children homes with families who will love them. I hope that one day that I can do the same.”

Thank you for this post.

May I ask something here?

Please read the following posts. One was written and posted by a Dominican priest in his blog, and the other is by another writer but copied and posted in the same priest's blog.

Also, we are now within the nine-day novena period prior to the United States presidential election. Select your prayer and commit yourself to it during these days.
