A severe cough (The devotion of the Three Hail Marys)
During a long bus trip, Clare developed a very severe cough that was loud and prolonged. The lady who was sitting behind her took out a holy card of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and silently continuously prayed a devotion that is known as The Three Hail Marys, to ask for a healing of the cough. Later on another passenger came up to the lady and touched her with a relic of Saint Philomena. The next morning Clare was completely free of the cough.
The Three Hail Marys Devotion consists of saying three Hail Marys followed by the invocation “O Mary my mother keep me from mortal sin”. This devotion is in honour the power, wisdom and love with which the Blessed Trinity has infused into the heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Many favours have been granted throughout the centuries to those who practice this devotion.
This story comes from the book: Help from heaven (Answers to prayer), which can be read free-online by pressing here.
The Hail Mary Prayer
Hail Mary full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus
Holy Mary Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death. Amen.

How do I get ‘more’ information on : #1 Prayer to Mary Help of Christians? and #2 I am very much interested in the Green Scapular and how I can obtain both. Many thanks.

I know where to get green scapulars here in Australia. That might not be helpful to you. I found this website which might be useful.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I will be looking into the websites you provided. My thoughts are “more” people should be looking into praying, and what a more beautiful channel to put our loving prayers to. Bless You for having such a wonderful site which I came into quite by a stumble. What a wonderful stumble. Brought me to my knees in a beautiful, peaceful way.
