In 1917, Archbishop of Trani had a change of heart for the better about Luisa Piccarreta
In 1917 a new Archbishop of Trani, with jurisdiction over Corato, was appointed. His name was Archbishop Regime. Unfortunately he was influenced by some jealous local clergy who were hostile to Luisa, and therefore he was skeptical of Luisa’s reputation for sanctity. Thus he determined to sign a decree preventing priests from visiting her room and saying Mass there. As his hand approached the paper to sign it, his arm and part of his body were at once paralyzed.
Thankfully, he immediately realized the significance of his poor judgement and he asked to be taken immediately to Luisa’s home. Even before he arrived, Luisa asked a companion who was present to open the door, because God enlightened her that the bishop was coming. Supported by two priests, he entered her house for the first time. As soon as she saw him, Luisa asked Archbishop Regime for his blessing. At that moment he was able to raise his arm and bless her as if nothing had happened. He was instantly cured!

A somber occasion of a murdered son turns to joy after a miraculous healing by Jesus via the faith of Luisa Piccarreta
One day a young man was found dead, lying on the ground in a
pool of blood. When his mother heard this fatal news, she did not rush to see
her son but ran howling and disheveled to Luisa’s house where she knelt on the
doorstep, crying: “Luisa, Luisa, they’ve killed my son!“
The holy little one – as the singer called Luisa – was moved
and said: “Go and fetch your son, the Lord is giving him back to
The mother was helped to her feet and accompanied by a few
devout persons to the place where her son lay dead.
At the sight of him, ignoring the police, the mother flung
herself on the body, cradled it in her arms and kissed it desperately like the
sorrowful Mary at the foot of the cross.
But suddenly the young man opened his eyes and said: “Mammà,
sto ca nan pianger”, which means Mother, I’m here, don’t cry.
