[There are countless articles regarding Gigliola Candian on the web, most in foreign languages, particularly Italian; however I have extracted the following article, slightly edited by me, from]:

September 28, 2014 — Reported in Gigliola Candian from Venice had multiple sclerosis and was confined to a wheelchair. In Medjugorje on September 13 she saw a great light, realised she could walk, and stood up.  “To me, it is a miracle,” says the 48 year old Italian who’d visited Medjugorje before, but had never prayed for a healing, “I felt a great heat in the legs and I saw a light. From that moment I realised that I could walk.”

“In Medjugorje, the Lord spoke to me and I started to stand up. I was inside a small community. We were at church, there were other people and Jesus spoke to me,” she told the Venice newspaper Corriere del Veneto. “I was praying and the Lord asked me, ‘Do you trust me?’ I replied that I trusted Him and He told me, ‘Then walk.’ I felt a tingling in the legs, saw the light and got up, watched by everyone’s incredulous eyes. “I was never rooted in faith” she says, “but I often went to Medjugorje because there is a different feel there. I feel good there. I feel pampered by the Virgin Mary.” She relates that her illness was a tragedy for her but one she had accepted with serenity.

“I never asked the Virgin Mary for my healing,” Gigliola told Italian newspaper Il Gazzettino.

In recent days, she has walked on her own in her house, done some short walks in her garden and, generally improved day by day though muscles are still lacking in her legs. Visits from specialists are scheduled in the days to come, Venezia Today reports.
