SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The religious relic of Saint Sharbel is responsible for thousands of miracles.  The most recent miracle, was a legally blind woman who reportedly regained her sight back, after being blessed at the Saint Joseph Maronite Catholic Church in Arizona.

After he was buried, people reported seeing a bright light surrounding his tomb.  His grave became a place of pilgrimage for thousands of people. The relic of Saint Sharbel will be at Saint Anthony Maronite Catholic Church in Springfield from May 4th to May 6th.

A healing Mass will be held on Friday, May 6th at 6pm. Divine Liturgies will have three services, one at 8am, noon and 6pm.
