"MY MOTHER'S CRUCIFIX TURNED TO GOLD AS SHE AND I
July 11, 1982
On May 29th I attended the vigil at Bayside.
A few weeks ago, while praying the rosary I had used
that night, I noticed the medal of Our Blessed Lady as well as the chain
connecting all the beads and the discs surrounding the Our Father had turned to
gold. (The crucifix did not).
Two New Haven jewelers have confirmed the metal is
gold. One gave it the acid test.
A few nights later I was holding my mother's rosary in
my hand. I placed my thumb on the crucifix of her rosary and said, "Mom, my
crucifix did not turn." My mother's crucifix turned to gold as she and I

My father was
critically ill for 6 months. He was
in and out of intensive care at least 6 times.
He has had a history of heart problems since he was 36 or 38 years old.
Eleven years ago he had a triple by-pass and an
This year he went into
congestive heart-failure; at that point he weighed approximately 220 pounds.
His health was critical. After
his quadruple by-pass this year the doctors gave him 6 months--a year to live.
He is 62 years old. His body
began rejecting all medicine. He
lost weight down to 143 1/2 pounds. He
was not able to even hold water on his stomach.
They told us our only hope was a heart transplant.
I prayed one
night over my father and asked Jesus to please give him a miracle and if He
couldn't to please help him to carry this heavy cross.
I wrote a letter to the Vigil of June the 18th
1991. I found a rose petal and
placed it under his pillow. From
that day on my father has held all of his food down and is now 163 pounds.
He is grouchy like he used to be--he even swam 3 laps across the pool 2
weeks ago. He is going shopping and
to the beach.
I believe my
father is a receiver of a miracle. I
talked with a nurse whom followed his case from beginning to end.
She said, "I hope you know your father has received a miracle."
waiting now for the doctors' remarks on this.
promised Jesus and Blessed Mother several things.
One was to do the best I could to spread the news of Her apparitions.
So please send me information on the billboard poster.
December 8, 1980 I had a Rosary that turned to gold;
proved by the jewelers. I
sent in acknowledgement then. I
would also like to add that I am a CNA. I
believe in miracles--I have never seen a person that sick, live.
God bless you all

To whom it may concern,
It is with deep gratitude that I give this testimony of my conversion at the
request of my dear friend, Virginia.
I am using my business stationery (Henry Wiegand
Corporation) to emphasize the fact that I am not given to imagination, having
been a chemist. Having been raised in an orthodox Jewish home, I never was
interested in Christianity.
Even though I married a Protestant girl, who later on
became a Catholic, and our children were raised Catholic, I never considered
changing my religion.
My wife had been receiving literature from a well
meaning friend stating that the Virgin Mary was appearing in Bayside, New York.
My wife paid little attention to these rather
frightening reports of the coming chastisement due to increasing sin in our
world. But she became troubled, wondering whether there could be some truth in
it after all.
On October 4, 1974, she prayed in front of the Virgin
Mary in our parish church in Charlestown, N.H., asking for an answer in regard
to these alleged apparitions.
After having completed her prayers, she went to the
rectory where she spoke to the parish priest, his housekeeper, and another
parishioner. They did not speak about church related matters. My wife had an old
Rosary with her which she had put on the kitchen table. This Rosary had turned
rather black with all the years. All of a sudden this very Rosary turned, within
a minute, into the most beautiful gold color. When my wife showed me her Rosary,
I did not believe that this was the very same 20-year-old Rosary that I had
fixed many times, as the links were coming apart.
My wife still had the flyers from Bayside, and we
decided to go down to the apparition grounds to get more insight. I said,
"If God wants me to become a Catholic, something has to happen to me--this
is Your sign."
We drove down to New York on the Feast of the Holy
Rosary with Virginia. Many people had given us their Rosaries. Also, I had a
Rosary that belonged to our son. He was not that devout any longer, even though
he still attended Sunday Mass....
I had checked every Rosary to assure no false claims
could be made. I had put all Rosaries into an open compartment of my car; we
were a half-an-hour from home when I noticed something shiny. Among the
Rosaries I could see our son's Rosary turning in front of our eyes. The Hail
Mary beads turned into a gold color while the Our Father beads turned into a
copper color. There was no logical explanation for this. Having studied
chemistry, I could not find an argument to disprove what had happened.
I spend three of the most troubled weeks of my life
trying to cope with this unmistakable call of God for my conversion. I could not
sleep. I read the Bible, the New Testament especially, and as many books as I
could get my hands on in regard to apparitions--like Lourdes, Fatima, La Salette,
etc.--also books on stigmatized saints, and the Catholic Faith in general.
Finally, I realized that I had to follow God's call. At
the Easter Sunday Vigil Mass 1975, I was baptized into the Roman Catholic Faith,
and I thank God and Our Blessed Mother every day for the great gift of faith. We
attend daily Mass, and we are very active in our Church.
I am presently the president of the parish council and
I try to serve God in every capacity.
from Charlestown, New
