If anyone thinks this is strange and medieval, they should perhaps ask themselves what happens when football trophies are put on display today.I tell you what happens. Fans think, 'oh good, my team won the cup. Hooray'. They don't think, 'I'm cured'. (Mind you, if a Rugby League trophy appeared at Swinton, it would be a bloody miracle).
Amidst the St Thérèse fridge magnets, there are always the hopeful, the tragic and the gullible.
One woman said that she became pregnant, after being told she could not, when she prayed to St Thérèse.I'm sorry, but I think she must have been doing something else as well.
Come back the Enlightenment, all is forgiven.
