  • THE HEALING OF [the eyes of] GEMMA DI GIORGI [by St. Padre Pio] [Ecumenical]

    The condition is called Aniridia:

    “Aniridia is an eye disorder characterized by a complete or partial absence of the colored part of the eye (the iris). These iris abnormalities may cause the pupils to be abnormal or misshapen. Aniridia can cause reduction in the sharpness of vision (visual acuity) and increased sensitivity to light (photophobia).”

    Having Aniridia doesn't mean total blindness since there are methods of controlling the level of light entering the eye... Also, from my readings, she was never able to have complete vision without devices to control the light entering her eyes. In other words, there was no miracle...
