A priest in Indiana says he was cured of a brain tumor after he made a pilgrimage to Lourdes, France, in June 2022.

“I just wanted to make a video really quickly to let everybody know that I actually was healed of my brain tumor in Lourdes,” Fr. John Hollowell said in a video he posted on his YouTube channel on Monday, Jan. 30.

Lourdes is a popular pilgrimage site for many believers. While the Catholic Church has recognized 70 healings from Lourdes as miraculous, thousands of other people have reported inexplicable cures of their ailments, the Lourdes shrine’s website notes.

In 2020, Hollowell, a priest in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

After undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, the tumor started to grow back.

“I had a pretty negative MRI about two-and-a-half months before I left for Lourdes. The MRI showed that [the tumor] was starting to grow back. The MRI that I had also had found a tumor on my pituitary gland, as well,” Hollowell said. 

Following Hollowell’s trip to Lourdes, he announced that he had been healed in a homily he delivered to his parish.

In an Oct. 28, 2022 homily that was published on Hollowell’s blog, he wrote, “Like Naaman the Syrian in our first reading, who washed and was cleansed from leprosy in the Jordan, I washed in the river at Lourdes and was cured.”

“And like the leper who returns to give thanks, I want to publicly thank Jesus for healing me,” he added.

“When I got back from Lourdes, I could preach without a prepared text again,” he shared.

Hollowell was told that his tumor “may never grow back” and that “all that is showing up on the MRI is scar tissue from your initial brain surgery,” after an MRI on Nov. 3, 2022.

“I want to thank Jesus for the gift not just of my healing but also the gift of the tumor surgeries, radiation and chemo as well.”
