“We cannot wait for the storm to pass over - we must learn to dance in the rain.”

Artie Boyle, Cancer Survivor and Development Officer, Archdiocese of Boston

13 Kids, Six Months to Live; The Power of Prayer Cured Cancer

Fifteen Years Later He Will Recount His Story for Catholics@Work

May 12 Catholics@Work Breakfast

In 1999, Artie Boyle, father of 13, had cancer in his kidney and lungs. Doctors put his chance of surviving even six months at less than 5%.

Urged by two friends, Artie travelled to Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina, to pray. Thousands pilgrimage to Medjugorje because of widely reported apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

When Artie returned home he was cancer free! The astounded doctors at Mass General Hospital could find no medical explanation.

Artie Boyle will share his amazing story with us at the Catholics@Work breakfast on May 12. His story has several key elements -- spiritual healing through the sacrament of Reconciliation and the power of forgiveness, Mary’s intercession, and Jesus’ miraculous healing.

Artie’s powerful story is captured in a book he wrote, "Six Months to Live- Three Guys on the Ultimate Quest for a Miracle." It relates not only Artie’s miraculous healing but his spiritual transformation and the hope and inspiration he offers to thousands who hear his story.

John Dunican, president of Catholics@Work said, “This is one of those stories that both challenges credibility and reinforces our faith all at the same time. Don’t miss this incredible speaker and amazing story; put it on your calendar today.”

Arthur P. “Artie" Boyle is a native of Dorchester, Mass.  He’s been married to his high school sweetheart, Judy, for 40 years. They have 13 wonderful children and 16 grandchildren. He’s been a successful businessman, amateur hockey player and coach. (The Boyle’s son, Brian, is a forward with the Tampa Bay Lightning.) Perhaps most telling of his character, though, is that he is a man of deep faith – a practicing, devout Catholic.
