ALL PATHS LEAD TO THEE
Healing Ma’am Elizabeth, A True Story
MA’AM ELIZABETH, AS PEOPLE CALL HER, ARRIVES AT THE HEALING CENTER ON A SHINY SPOTLESS LIMOUSINE-BLACK MERCEDES BENZ, ACCOMPANIED BY TWO MAIDS AND A CHAUFFER. THE TWO MAIDS HELP HER TO THE CHAPEL WHERE THE HEALING SESSION OF SISTER RAQUEL REODICA, RVM IS ABOUT TO START.
WHEN SHE NOTICES PEOPLE LOOKING AT HER, SHE PUTS ON A LIGHT SILK VEIL OVER HER HEAD. SHE HAS ADVANCED PSORIASIS ALL OVER HER SCALP, WHICH IS JUST ONE BIG OPEN WOUND. A TOWEL IS DRAPED OVER HER SHOULDERS TO CATCH THE OCCASIONAL PUS DRIPPING FROM HER HEAD. HER HAIR IS FALLING OFF AND SHE IS ALMOST BALD. WHEN IT IS HER TURN TO BE PRAYED OVER BY SISTER RAQUEL, SHE SPEAKS WITH TEARS IN HER EYES.
MAAM ELIZABETH
Sister, I decided to come here because I’ve not slept for many days now.
SISTER RAQUEL
I can see you have advanced-stage psoriasis, am I right?
MAAM ELIZABETH
Right, sister. It is so itchy, I can’t sleep. It is too tender to scratch so I am so helpless.
SISTER RAQUEL
So let us pray to the Lord, together. Follow after me …. Dear Jesus …..
SISTER RAQUEL PUTS HER HAND LIGHTLY ON THE VEIL AS THEY PRAY TOGETHER. ALL THE WHILE, MAAM ELIZABETH SOBS LOUDLY. AFTER THE PRAY OVER, SHE CALMS DOWN A BIT.
SISTER RAQUEL
I want you to take these fresh leaves of the Neem tree, boil it and, when it has turned a bit cooler, pour it on your scalp and leave it there to dry. Do this two to three times a day for a week. Then come back here. More important than the Neem treatment is for you to pray hard every night, talk to Jesus and ask hard for Him to heal you. Is that okay?
MAAM ELIZABETH
Very okay, sister. I will do it.
MAAM ELIZABETH TAKES THE LEAVES AND GOES HOME AND DOES EVERYTHING SISTER SAID. AFTER A WEEK, SHE IS BACK AT THE CENTER. SISTER GREETS HER WARMLY.
SISTER RAQUEL
Oh you look better, Maam Elizabeth.
MAAM ELIZABETH
I followed your instructions strictly, sister. After the first three treatments, it was so violently unbearably itchy for about an hour. But then, afterwards, the itch was gone. I could sleep better. But I am not yet healed sister. The psoriasis remains. Please pray over me once more.
AND SO THEY PRAY TOGETHER ONCE MORE, AND MAAM ELIZABETH GOES HOME. AFTER ONE MONTH, SHE IS BACK. THE PSORIASIS IS WORSENING. HER TWO MAIDS ARE BESIDE HER.
MAAM ELIZABETH
Sister, something is wrong. I am not getting healed. Maybe Jesus does not want to heal me.
SISTER RAQUEL
Or He does not want to heal you YET for some reason. Let us try to find out what is wrong.
SISTER LOOKS AT THE TWO MAIDS, WHOSE HEADS ARE BOWED, AND SMILES AT THEM.
SISTER RAQUEL
(TO THE TWO MAIDS)
Hello there, how are you?
THERE IS NO REPLY.
MAAM ELIZABETH
(STERNLY)
Answer when the sister is talking to you.
STILL NO REPLY. THE TWO MAIDS BACK AWAY.
MAAM ELIZABETH
(MORE STERNLY IN A LOUDER VOICE)
Did you hear what I said?
SISTER RAQUEL
That is okay, Maam Elizabeth. Let them go. Let us talk alone.
MAAM ELIZABETH
You go outside. Sister and I will talk alone.
THE TWO MAIDS BOW POLITELY AT SISTER AND LEAVE. SISTER HAS A KEEN SENSE AND CAN GUESS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.
SISTER RAQUEL
I think they are afraid of you.
MAAM ELIZABETH
(SIGHING WITH EXASPERATION)
My patience is running out on those two, especially the smaller one. They are so dumb and ignorant. I told the smaller one to always wash my drinking glass before dinner even it was not used. She never followed me. She would do it only when I reminded her. She has no initiative.
SISTER RAQUEL
But they are not office executives. Of course, they will sometimes be told many times. You have to be patient with them.
MAAM ELIZABETH
Even if I shout at them, they forget my instructions. Ten times I told her, ten times she forgot. I don’t know what to do with them.
SISTER RAQUEL
So do you know what the Lord is telling you? Your psoriasis is caused by your tension in dealing with your maids.
MAAM ELIZABETH IS SHOCKED AND SPEECHLESS AT THE SHORTNESS AND FRANKNESS OF SISTER RAQUEL’S WORDS. SHE STARTS TO CRY. SHE BECKONS AT THE TWO MAIDS TO COME OVER.
MAAM ELIZABETH
(IN TEARS AND IN SISTER’S PRESENCE, TO THE TWO MAIDS)
I am so sorry. Forgive me for being so harsh on the two of you.
THE TWO MAIDS ARE SHOCKED.
THE SHORTER MAID
It is okay, ma’am. It is really okay. (TURNING TO SISTER RAQUEL IN TEARS) Thank you, Sister.
THE TWO MAIDS LEAVE.
SISTER RAQUEL
That is a very humbling experience. That is hard to do, you know that?
MAAM ELIZABETH
I feel so guilty. It is only now I realize what the Lord is telling me. Kindness and gentleness are the path to healing. Lord, forgive me.
SO THEY PRAY AGAIN TOGETHER, THIS TIME WITH THE TWO MAIDS, WHOM SISTER ALSO BLESSES. MAAM ELIZABATH AND THE TWO MAIDS ARE ALL SMILES WHEN THEY GO HOME.
AFTER ONLY FOUR DAYS, THEY ARE BACK. THERE ARE THE SAME WIDE SMILES FROM ALL THREE. THE MAIDS ARE TALKING FRANTICALLY AND ARE NO LONGER BOWING THEIR HEADS. WHEN THEY APPROACH SISTER, MAAM ELIZABETH TAKES OFF HER VEIL AND SHOWS SISTER HER SCALP. ALL FOUR OF THEM LAUGH ALOUD. HER SCALP IS AS PINK AS A BABY’S SKIN, NOT A TRACE OF PSORIASIS. HER HAIR LOOKS MORE FLUFFY NOW. SHE IS COMPLETELY HEALED.
all paths lead to Thee
Lord of the oceans and the mountains
you ask of us something so small and easy to do
only to be gentle and humble
then you heal us instantly
thank you Lord for your kindness
