Sr. Briege McKenna, O.S.C.was born in Ireland and entered the Sisters of St. Clare
at the age of fifteen. After coming to Tampa, Florida as a teacher, she became
crippled by the onset of rheumatoid arthritis. At the age of twenty-four, she
was miraculously and instantaneously healed during the celebration of the Eucharist
and some time later received, in prayer, the gift of healing for which she has
become so widely known.
Around the same time that Sr. Briege experienced her miraculous healing,
the Lord also showed her the exceptional dignity and holiness of the priestly ministry.
Through his Divine Providence, the Lord began to involve Sr. Briege in
ministering to priests. In some cases, this was at an individual level,
but more commonly at retreats and seminars.
For almost thirty years now, Sister has spent her time traveling
the world ministering to priests and praying for healing.
