Diocese concludes investigation into possible miracle

Jim Wogan News

In September 2014, the Diocese of Knoxville was asked to conduct a formal inquiry to examine a possible miracle attributed to the intercession of Servant of God, Isaac Thomas Hecker. The inquiry centered on an initially diagnosed tumor which disappeared before surgery was to take place. The patient had prayed, asking Father Hecker to intercede with God, to remove his tumor. The diocesan inquiry was unable to confirm with absolute certainty the initial diagnosis of a tumor and therefore recommended that Bishop Stika not proceed any further with this case.
