Recovery of Debt
A young widow lent her friend about $3,000 to put down a deposit on a house. She promised to pay it back by a certain date. It was most important that she do so because the widowed lady needed it back to pay off some off her husband’s funeral expenses. Unfortunately the due date passed and the money was not payed back The lady who had borrowed the money went out of her way to avoid meeting up with the widow.
The widow went to Singapore to visit some relatives and wrote back to Australia to her friend pleading with her to pay back the money. The letter was totally ignored. The situation dragged on. Another friend of the widow said that she would say an Infant of Prague eight hour novena to help the lady find a solution to the problem.
The next time that this friend went to see the widow before she could say that she had completed the novena, the widow said to her “I know that you have made the novena, about half of the debt has been paid back and the lady has promised to pay back the rest of the money in instalments as soon as she can…..”
