Following the decree by the pope on a miracle attributed to the intercession of the Venerable person, that person is beatified.
In 1983, the action of God was manifested and a healing occurred: Yannick Frechette, a boy of 13, was cured of acute lymphoblastic leukemia thanks to the intercession of Mother Gamelin!
In 1997, the medical record was submitted for the study of physicians of Rome, who emitted in 1999 a unanimous, positive judgment on this case judged inexplicable by medical science. Thereafter, the Roman theologians spoke out in turn on the intercession attributed solely to Emilie Tavernier Gamelin.
On December 18, 2000, Pope John Paul II recognized the intercession of Emilie Tavernier Gamelin, as well as the authenticity of the miracle. He presented her to the Christian people as blessed on October 7, 2001 in St. Peter’s Square and enabled public worship in the regions associated to her.
From the day of her beatification, Emilie Gamelin has been exemplified as a model of compassionate charity and heroic practice of Christian virtues. She is also known for her secular commitment and as foundress of an apostolic religious congregation, the Sisters of Providence.
