In February 2010, I went in for surgery to remove a brain tumor only to find out it was inoperable. The surgeon was able to do a biopsy though and the results were not the worse but not the best either. Statistics were scary and only giving me a few years basically. My husband and I were so upset, thinking about our little boy without his mommy. We cried and panicked for a couple days. And then that Sunday February 28th, we went to Fr. DiOrio's healing service. My husband had been to see him many years before, but I had never been. I silently prayed that if I was to be healed that I please receive some sort of sign. I don't normally do that and maybe I shouldn't have,but I did. Fr. DiOrio's talk just amazed me. From just listening to him, I felt different. It was an incredibly uplifting day for me. As Fr. DiOrio began sprinkling Holy Water over the pews, he suddenly stopped at me and asked me if I was ok. I didn't think to tell him I had a brain tumor. I told him I was ok because at the moment I felt so good. He blessed me and my husband. Then a man working in the ministry came up to me and handed me beautiful Rosary beads , saying that a woman also working in the ministry wanted me to have them. I didn't know anyone there and we didn't give our names at the door. We were overwhelmed and I took that as a sign from God.
There are so many favorite stories about Fr. DiOrio and the experiences we had at the healing services, I wouldn't know where to begin. Whenever I needed to be close to Jesus, to hear what Jesus was asking of me, I went to Fr. DiOrio's healing services. We prayed, we laughed, we cried and rejoiced together in the Lord. When Mama Molly was alive we had so much fun. One day on a retreat, Mama Molly was with us. Fr. DiOrio told a story about his grandmother ( I think she was his maternal grandmother, Crusifisia) He stated, 'Her name means Crucifix and boy could she crucify you". If looks could kill, Father would have been dead on the spot.The look on Mama Molly's face made us all laugh and he laughed apologetically, too. Fr. Ralph is God's, Chosen, Special Priest and our Friend in Christ.
Fr. Ralph, I miss attending your healing services. It has been awhile now. Please, pray for healing that will give me enough strength, to serve Jesus and live a life pleasing to the Father or above all a happy death. I desire Heaven, God's will be done.
I love you with the Hearts of Jesus and
I was once told I would never walk again....my cousin was told he had 6 months to live. ...in St. Charles LA in 1980, we attended a service with about 10,000 people...you came up to my cousin early in the service and said "lord we have cancer to heal"....and then reached over to me in my wheel chair, touched my shoulder, and said "and lord, heal this mans broken heart"......(My injuries were caused by a suicide attempt). My cousin responded to his chemo, and was officially cured. I walk now without crutches, something the doctors once said would not happen....
What's Your Story?
ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO MY DAUGHTER, LISA WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LUPUS. SHE WAS TAKING THE CONVENTIONAL MEDICINES AND WAS NOT DOING TOO GOOD. WE HEARD ABOUT FATHER DI ORIO AND TOOK HER TO HIM. IT WAS A DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET. IT WAS LIKE AN ALL DAY RECEPTION. IT WAS THE MOST SPIRITIAL DAY OF MY LIFE. THERE WERE STORIES, TEARS AND LAUGHTER. THERE WAS A WOMAN NEXT TO ME THAT KEEP FALLING TO THE FLOOR. I THOUGHT,"WHAT IN THE WORLD IS SHE DOING?" BEFORE LONG I LEARNED THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS WITHIN HER.
AT THE END OF THE DAY FATHER RALPH DID HANDS ON HEALING. FIRST MY HUSBAND. MY HUSBAND EXPLAINED THAT WE WERE HERE FOR LISA WHO HAD LUPUS. FATHER DI ORIO SAID TO MY HUSBAND, "SHE WILL BE FINE". AFTER THE HANDS ON HEALING TO ME, HE WENT TO LISA AND SHE FELL TO THE GROUND. I WAS SCARED, BUT WAS TOLD NOT TO DISTURB HER. I THINK I DID A LITTLE THOUGH.
AFTER LISA WOKE UP WE STARTED ON OUR JOURNEY HOME TO LONG ISLAND. I WAS A SMOKER AT THE TIME AND DIDN'T SEEM TO WANT TO STOP FOR A CIGARETTE
WE JUST WENT RIGHT HOME. ON THE WAY HOME LISA KNEES TINGLED AND BECAME NORNAL SIZE AS DID HER HANDS AND SHE COULD BREATH BETTER TOO. LISA'S BODY WAS VERY SWOLLEN FROM LUPUS, AND EVERYTHING SEEMED TO BE GETTING BETTER FOR HER ON THE RIDE HOME.
AFTER WE RETURNED HOME THE SMELL OF SMOKE WAS MAKING ME FEEL SICK. I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING A VIRUS AT THE TIME. THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I WOKE UP I HAD COFFEE WITH NO CIGARETTE. I HAVE NOT TOUCHED ONE SINCE THAT DAY. I SMOKED 1 1/2 PACKS A DAY.
In 1979 I was a little innocent child of god. I was just 11 months old and unable to walk nor crawl right.The bone specialist strongly recommended surgery or braces on my legs.My mom was in despair and took me to father Diorio on June 3rd 1979 at his healing service. My mom Carolyn was standing up and holding me in her arms when Farther Diorio approached her and me instantly and asked her what she was in need of.She responded a healing for my baby girl Deanna.He put holy oil on me and prayed for the healing which did occur .I was brought back to doctor who confirmed no braces or surgery required .I am 32yrs old now and walk fine with NO problems at all. I also was giving insight from god too. Glory be to God!
The first time that I ever heard of Fr. Ralph was in 1993 after I had been operated on to remove a malignant tumor of the colon that had abscessed.
I was receiving chemo treatments once a week and I received them for 1 year. A friend of mine told me about this priest who her husband had received a healing from
after attending a healing service and she wanted to know if I wanted to attend one that was coming up in Pittsburgh. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to or not but I told her
I would let her know after thinking and praying about it. I finally decided to attend and I signed up to go on the bus that a group from this area hired
to take everyone. This was the first healing that I had ever attended and I really didn't know what to expect but it was the most inspiritional event
that I ever experienced. Father annointed with oil all the cancer patients who attended and when he spoke, what he had to say touched my heart like
I never had happen before and it brought me to tears....some of joy and some of sadness as I had just lost my husband of 28 years suddenly 3 years before and was still
dealing with grief from that. That service was in December 1993 at the Convention center in Pittsburgh, PA and I made it my business to attend almost every session
that he had in that area a couple times a year for over 4 years. Those teaching and healing services became very important to me and helped me to deal with my
illness and grief after the death of my husband. I have been cancer free now for 17 years. I remember asking for prayers for my daughter and husband who were trying to have a child but due to her endometrosis
was unable to conceive...even after several fertility sessions and finally had the opportunity to adopt a beautiful baby girl shortly afterward and we were ever so grateful
when she was born in December 1998. Unfortunately she had several health issues that needed attention and we again asked for prayers that she would be healed and God answered them again.
She was born with a hole in her heart, asthma and allergys to several foods. She is now 11 years old and the asthma now does not require meds and some of the allergys
have gone but she still has a leaking valve in her heart which they are monitering and so far hasn't caused any major problems with her development....thank
you Jesus...Sara is a bautiful young lady and is a blessing to our lives
I felt the need to share all the times Jesus has answered our prayers and to let Father Ralph know that the healing sessions that I have attended in the past
were the salvation of my sanity because whatever he spoke about seemed to be just what I needed to hear at that time. He truly is an angel and has been
a great blessing in our lives from the very first time that we met him.
God Bless You Father Ralph and I am looking forward to attending your next service in DuBois PA in October. Take care and stay well!!!
In October or so of 1983, my sister won tickets to see you at the Albany arena. At the time she thought she would go with her husband.
Soon after this, our mother, Rita was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. She went to 3 different places including Canada for opinions. One told her she had 6 months to live, one said operate and one said radiation therapy.
My sister took her to see you in November, I believe. Mom was 58 then. She received the Holy Spirit that night, she said you put your hands on her chest, she felt a burning sensation in her chest and woke up on the floor. All the way home she said she tasted smoke.
On June 11, 1984 my mother had her lung removed. The doctors told us the night before the surgery that it would take 5 hours. After 2 ½ hours, the doctor came out and said that when they went in the tumor was like carbon, nothing to it, like burnt tissue.
We knew then it was the miracle of her meeting you. My mother lived for 25 years cancer free. She just passed this year.
She was grateful and knew she had received a miracle. A few months ago, I had a dream of Father Di”Orio , not really remembering the dream, other than that he was in it. A friend of mine told me a few days prior that her daughter in law was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
After that dream, I knew the message was for her. I introduced her to you and your ministry. She has been in contact with you and you have been praying for her daughter in law.
This past month after undergoing chemo treatments the doctor told her she is in remission, which almost never happens with stage 4 cancer.
So I believe it was the prayers that have caused the remission. Thank you for giving me my mother for 25 more years.
Dear Father Ralph,
I felt so blessed with love while attending a private Mass at St. Bonaventure Church and a healing service at the DuBois Area Middle School in DuBois, PA this past weekend. Meeting you has begun to mend my heart.
You see, I lost the love of my life, Dr. Albert L. Varacallo Jr., in a tragic bicycle accident on July 8, 2010. He was riding his bicycle before going to work early one morning and was only about a mile from our house when he was struck headon by a car who turned left across his path. Unknown to me, he was already in the accident, life-flighted from the scene to a trauma center and died before I even received the first call from his office that he was late for work. I frantically looked for him but couldn't find him, calling emergency rooms of several hospitals, and not being able to find any answers. That day aches in my heart.
He was my high school sweetheart and we knew each other for 37 years. He was 52 years old, a devoted and loving husband, wonderful father to our six children, and beloved family physician to several thousand patients. He loved Jesus Christ with all of his heart, so I know he is in heaven. I can feel his presence in many situations, and he has helped me make decisions that I was just not able to make at the time. I actually felt him through you at the healing service.
I feel I am so very blessed because I was chosen 29 years ago to be his bride and God blessed us with such a beautiful family. Al died and left a huge hole in my heart and in my life. Some days I don't know if I can go on because the pain and loneliness are sometimes so excruciating.
I was seated directly in front of you at the healing service, the seat in front of your podium. When you looked at me, I could feel God speaking through you. I could see Jesus in your eyes. You played a beautiful song called, "Always in My Heart" and we sang it and you pointed at me and told me my husband was there watching me at that moment. I burst into tears, a deep personal cleansing of my heart. Father I just wanted to be near you, so I could know Jesus Christ more personally. You also shared that every night you go to a window and place your mother's picture there and blow her a kiss and tell her good night. You told me to do that also, and I have. I blow Al a kiss every night from my bedroom window.
Oh Father Ralph, thank you for coming into my life at this moment. I will never be the same. You heal many people physically, but I am healing emotionally because of you.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
